HAPPY THANKSGIVING!




We’re so lucky. It’s time to count our blessings and I have many.

*Dinner tomorrow with family, including a big turkey and—most importantly, mashed potatoes. OK, even more importantly, grandchildren.

*My faithful readers, reviewers, and fans.

*The mystery writing community—a bunch of the nicest people I could ever have hoped to fall in with. Many thanks for the camaraderie, support, and understanding.

*Living in a country that is still, in spite of many failings, a good place to live. It’s way better than being in Syria right now, for instance.

*My health (for my age, as my doctors always say, bless their hearts).

*My thumb surgery, which will alleviate my pain and make it more useful so I can write more books.

*The beautiful place where I live, which will recover from the current drought and wildfire smoke and be beautiful again because, again, there are grandchildren here. AND another set not too far away.

*The fact that, as Hubby and I often marvel, we have three children who are all healthy and happy and like each other and even like us.

*The corollary to the above, that we have seven marvelous grandchildren, each one a delight in their own way.

I hope you have a wonderful Turkey Day, or as one movement wants to declare, Mashed Potatoes Day.

Sounds like your Thanksgiving is going to be great. My husband and I enjoyed ours out at a restaurant. I dread going back to work tomorrow, but I'm grateful to have this job since I need it.
Happy Thanksgiving. Life is good.

We had a very nice day with the kids and grands. Too much food, of course! We couldn't even eat dessert. They're all invited here tomorrow to try to make a dent in the desserts. Yes, having a needed job is good! We've eaten out for Thanksgiving and that can be nice--no dishes and cleanup.
