Happy Thanksgiving and bah humbug to Black Friday!

Happy Thanksgiving from our table to yours!

Thinking about eating? 
We do allot. At this special time of year who can help but conjure up memories of Thanksgiving dinners from the past. For good or bad, this celebration becomes about the food. And now that seems almost quaint as we are bombarded with "Black Friday" ads. A brief survey here at our table nets this comment: "Enough already" we have heard all we can stand about the sales and the store openings on this time honored traditional holiday. 

So for now just let us eat and be thankful for all the blessings we share and have been given. And as if that isn't enough, we are thankful not to go shopping on Thanksgiving!
