Happy Thanksgiving!

Blessings to One and All

On this Thanksgiving morning, while I am thankful for so many things, I want to especially highlight the blessing of getting to "know" so many "virtual friends" through blogging. 

Every day I look forward to reading about your adventures, learning from your misadventures, receiving your comments, and benefitting from your advice.

Thank you, Dear Readers, for your friendship!

Alex and I made it to Conway Tuesday with only minor glitches -- a tire pressure light that eventually went off after the temperature warmed up (apparently my tires don't like 37 degrees), and a wiper blade that almost flew off in a rainstorm.

Thanks, Toyota Conway, for your quick and kind service!

Son-2 arrived safely yesterday wearing his NYC Marathon Shirt ...

... and the games commenced.  First up was Phase 10 Twist (a twist on Phase 10). I started out strong, had a brief sprint to the front midway, but in the end Son-1 took the prize (bragging rights only).

After dinner we played Colt Express, a game of schemin', stealin', and shootin' in the Wild West.
So politically incorrect in so many ways, it was still fun and challenging. 

Alex and I teamed up as Cheyenne.  Our best schemes were thwarted in rapid succession and we finished in last place.

The turkey went in the brine last night and is soon headed for the oven along with sides of glazed carrots, green beans almandine, and colcannon mashup. Son-2 is the head chef in this family but DIL is in charge of the turkey.  The meal is always beautiful and delicious!

Looking forward to more fun and games while watching the Macy's parade this morning and sports this afternoon.  All-in-all, the Best kind of Thanksgiving celebration.

Best wishes to everyone for a blessed Thanksgiving.
