We had Thanksgiving dinner here with turkey and all the trimmings. 3 of the four children were able to come and we chatted with eldest son. Always grateful.
It has taken me almost an hour to fix a message sending to my doctor. My prescription is always mailed and for some reason the doctor's office failed to continue it so I sent an email (they will read on Monday).. First ever mistake they made so I cannot complain.
I sent an email to the sheriff and there is no reply after one week. I know they are swamped but something has to be done here before these teenagers crash and make they stop racing. They should be taken to the morgue to see a body. Our children went through a confirmation where the pastor always brought the teens to the morgue and showed them what a carelessness driver could do - A very strong message on life.
The turkey turned out perfect. I searched the internet to find the exact timing and all went well.
Judy: I often think of what the average person's view on Our Savior can be - most often, they pray only when there is a crisis. But, that is not for me to judge - we don't always know what is in their heart.
Almost Christmas - We miss going to the actual church but this too shall pass.

I occasionally get an email from Don. I say occasionally as in 1 or 2 times a year. I haven't heard from Janet in forever. I will try and contact her some other way. John will be home in the wee hours of the morning, along with Doug. I was totally surprised yesterday when our sweet Liz came in with Piper. I didn't know she was coming down, and wow we have had some wonderful time together. We were supposed to go in to North Bay to pick up my new glasses..... The weather has turned, we have had rain all day and when I left for my afternoon run there was fog on the river. By the time I came home the fog was spreading. We expect snow tonight..... The past has taught me that the weather determines my actions this time of year. We stayed home to avoid trouble.....
God has been so good to us, His Son, dying for our salvation and rising again. Jesus rising again tells us that in him there is only good news beyond the grave. We need to judge ourselves, whether he is LORD or just a good man that once lived.

I like the first one best too, Jacqueline. Charlie Duke was one of the later men to walk on the moon in later trips to the moon He came back and later got saved. In 1990 he gave his testimony on a local radio station. Because of that, I accepted Jesus as my Savior. First time I understood the Gospel.

I'm here, too! I will be on my own, as usual, for Thanksgiving Day, but there are family traditions I still keep and observe. I will watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV, and the National Dog Show that follows while making myself a meal that includes cranberry sauce and dressing (okay so it's Stovetop Stuffing mix) and pumpkin pie (this time it's sweet potato pie, tho) Later in the day I'll probably have a glass of wine, another piece of pie or maybe some popcorn while I watch something on Netflix. I'd love to be with my family but they are all busy with their own bunch and in another state so that can't happen. I'll probably make a couple phone calls and my daughter might call, but it will be later in the evening because she'll forget earlier.
It seems the more time I spend alone the harder it is for me to connect with the "outside world" I only go out for groceries (which I order online and drive to the store for pickup) or doctor appointments. There just doesn't seem to be any reason for anything else and I don't mind being home alone.
That's my story ... and I do want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving Day and every day wherever you may be located. Enjoy each moment you are in good health and surrounded with love.

t is good to be back again - sure cannot figure why I have been not able to get in here sometimes. Well, I am late but here. We had to drive through awful Denver traffic for Don's appointment with the veterans doctor.
Thanksgiving is at my house It does not look like much snow this year. With all the fire damage in the hills, skiing will be iffy as well.
Judy - thank you for keeping this little spot of sunshine open - take care.
