Thanksgiving was Mr. Ralph's favorite holiday.
He loved entertaining so our home was filled to the brim at Thanksgiving. Many folks were from his office who were new to the area. Young friends, old friends. Occasionally friends from other countries who do not celebrate this food filled day were included! It's an odd holiday to explain ... and of course now we shouldn't even BE celebrating. Poor Christopher ... how did he go from being so hailed he had his own holiday? Where did people find the information to dethrone him ... 500 years later ... oh, that's another blog ....
Today I am thankful for family, friends and food. I am lucky to have five siblings. Fortunate to have my one and only kidult at age 34...and happy to have two sweet grandchildren who live nearby. I have a wide circle of friends. All kinds of friends. And lots of friendly neighbors.
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you!
