Thanksgiving

Virtual Thanksgiving Day 2020

Thanksgiving 2020

Thank God for technology, and for big turkeys, too.

Sylvia and I spent a happy hour this morning video chatting with family a thousand miles away. None of us are able to travel due to Covid restrictions, but we were able to visit virtually. Watching the great grandkids play was so much fun, and it was nice to see everyone again.

Later today she and I will be sharing that scrumptuous turkey seen in the collage above. And this afternoon I'll be enjoying a footbal double-header. It WAS going to be a triple-header but the night game has had to be postponed until Sunday... due to Covid.

And the adventure continues.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving

Here's wishing a happy Thanksgiving Day for all my family and friends.

And here's a tip to help make the day happier: TURN OFF THE NEWS! Seriously. It's mostly fake news, lies, and fear-mongering anyway, designed to keep you in a panic mode so you'll keep watching and listening (and watching those commercials).

As a former news junkie myself who is in the process of pulling away from that hubbub and hooplah, I find that the further away I get from it the happier and less stressd I am. There's no way to totally avoid it, of course, but a few minutes a day spent with reliable sources is all we need. It's all I need, anyway.

Much healthier for mind, body, and soul is focusing on little things, simple things. Smiling and waving to neighbors, listening to good music, reading, prayer, really relaxing.

I hope you all can find moments of simple happiness on this Thanksgiving Day. I know I will.

The adventure continues.
