I guess the most popular photo is of the Turkey whole. But I carved it before I thought of the photo op.. and even clean plates at this time.. Hope everyone is where they wish to be on this the beginning of the Season of family and friends.. Gratitude is what we need to think of at a time when the news is a bit too scary to even contemplate.. We must look closer at hand, and be thankful for each day, and the family and friendships that we share with each other.. We are rich, when we look at it from that perspective. I hope each of you are with the person you care about and those that are not enjoy wonderful memories and love.

Munchies and music, enjoy an evening of fun and laughter.
When we built our house, we wanted some trees that showed color in the Fall. This Liquid Amber is one that we planted when we first settled here.. I have several others, but this made the best photo. The rock is from the time they dynamited the area for the house.. This is only one of many rocks. Love clear skies and cool days...
