SOMETHING NEW IN
November is coming to a close.
Time for the day-by-day December
With all due respect and reverence
to the Christmas season,
there's a whole new twist
to Advent calendars.
Introducing . . .
The Ginvent Calendar!
Each day reveals a mini-bottle
of hand crafted gin.
24 days of botanically unique GIN.
Getting us ready for Christmas morning!
(My sister already received the GinVent,
and says she can't wait to open Door #1.)

WHAT IT IS (AND ISN'T)
Today is Thanksgiving,
in America (Canada, too.)
We all grew up
learning what they taught us
about Thanksgiving . . .
Pilgrims surviving their first winter
(thanks to the Wampanoag Indians),
sharing a successful harvest
with their native American friends,
and feasting together.
But for me,
Thanksgiving is when we
come together, friends and family,
prepare a grand feast
and toast our blessings.
And have lots of fun,
like my friend, Pattie (last pic).
(Nice costume, Pattie.
Love the feathers.)
Where ever you are,
enjoy this peaceful day,
and count your blessings.
