Happy Thanksgiving
I love this time of year. The other morning I got up early and sat on my deck to drink my morning coffee. Looking out over our field at the back of the house just beyond the apple trees I saw two wild turkeys much like the ones in the picture to the right.
I sat and watched them for a long while as they cautiously made their way through our garden looking for an ear of corn that might have slipped by our notice from the summer harvest, or maybe some black eyed peas. It was a simple pleasure but one I enjoyed immensely. You see it's easy to get caught up in the daily rat race and to lose sight of what's important. Both Jilda's mother and mine have had a difficult year but both are alive with us on this Thanksgiving Day. I have my job and Jilda is enjoying success with her Folk Art business and when all is said and done, we have so much for which to be thankful.
I'm also thankful for all my friends. both new and old that resulted
directly for the creation of this website. Hardly a day goes by that someone doesn't stop me in the store or send me an email to say how much they appreciate the site. All I can say is that it has been a blessing to me as well.
So before I start getting mushy, I'll close by saying: keep our troops in your thoughts and prayers and have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
