Happy Thanksgiving

I wish each of you and your families a most Happy Thanksgiving. I'm very grateful for your loyal reading of this blog over the years and for the feedback and comments, too. May God bless you, each and every one.

Rosemary is for remembrance. Let's remember those who have played a role in our lives but who have gone, either through distance or death, and be grateful for those who were a blessing to us.

This photo shows my Mom,two younger sisters, me, my older sister & brother & my paternal grandmother. We are gathered around the Thanksgiving table. Earlier the three oldest children had walked around to Mrs, Goff's home where grandmother had her residence. We had escorted her to our house. Along the way we sang The Grandfather clock song, stopping when the song said that the clock stopped when the old man died. Sort of a grim song for a day of thanksgiving,  but we liked that song. It was a good 'marching' song.

After dinner we would walk her back or Dad would drive her home, depending on how late it was.

Today we are making our own memories. The pecan pie was out of the oven & the turkey was in by 8 am! Pi dog is really loving being here with us in SoCal instead of being left at home. I brought a bottle of Iron Horse Gratitude champagne to drink at dinner with the appetizers. There is more Sonoma Co wine for dinner itself. I suspect by the time we get to coffee & pie we will be very grateful, stuffed, and merry!
