Thanksgiving Wishes for You...

More than a year ago I shared this picture of wild turkeys in my back yard. Today is the traditional time to roast a turkey,... I think that most of these have escaped the oven. Unlike our ancestors who hunted turkeys, now we usually buy a specially grown turkey. We add all kinds of yummy side dishes and have a feast.

I will be doing that today at my daughter's home. My three grown children and my four grandchildren, as well as some people that my daughter invites to join our family dinner will be sitting down around 1 p.m. My contribution is always the home made rolls. Also my daughter has me make the gravy when I get there.

So today as we watch parades, eat huge meals and watch football, I wish for all my blogger friends, your families, all our neighbors far and wide, and our fellow residents on this planet, ...good health, warm clothes, a home, friends and a few moments to think of all that you are thankful for. For me, it's all of the above mentioned things plus my good fortune to have a job I enjoy, a camper to travel with, and especially this computer to communicate with all of you good people!

A special "Happy Thanksgiving" wish to you from the hill!

Happy Thanksgiving! I love the turkey photograph. Our wild turkeys have begun acting strangely, moving aggressively toward slowly approaching cars, etc., and once chasing a woman into her house. We have "experts" here to try to find the reason.

I hope you and your family had a great Thanksgiving! I love the turkeys! We have had a group of 9 visit daily for the past couple of months and we enjoyed seeing their families grow up.

Turkeys often walk through my yard back home in CA, but not so much wildlife here in big city. Hope you had a lovely day with family!
