Much to be thankful for!

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I wanted to post a quick check-in to make sure you know that I haven't forgotten you nor do I want you to think that I am not thankful for you.  I have made many friends through blogland, people I'd never have met but for the internet.  You are as special as the friends I see who live near me!

I also want to share how thankful we are to be safe from the fires in Northern California.  It's a good 150 miles north of us but we nevertheless felt the impact of the horrific fires.  The air in San Francisco was so unhealthy that everyone was wearing masks when walking around (and people had to line up to buy the masks, mind you).  The air was so bad that my daughter asked us to pick up her kids last week and keep them with us, where the air has been so much better.  Today it finally rained so the air should be much better!

bitter sweet!  We got to have our 3 grandkids for a week but only because they couldn't safely breathe the air where they lived.  Such a weird phenomenon. To me it's surreal.

So I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving, whether you are celebrating with family or friends.

I have many pictures to post and since I won't be having any grandkids after Thursday night, I'll have lots of time to post pictures I've had forever!

Much love and thanks,


  1. It has been such a blessing in my life to have gained your friendship through blogging!
    I am happy to know that you are not in the thick of the fire and smoke.
    Glad you got a week with the kids, but wish it was for a happier reason.
    Enjoy the holiday, Randy!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving!! Stay safe dear friend!

  3. Glad to hear you are all well ... more than a few prayers went up from my part of the country that you would all be safe. Continuing to pray for those in harms way still and those who have lost so much. Take care and Happy Thanksgiving! Linda

  4. Glad to hear you are safe and well! So sorry to hear about the air where your grandchildren lived but at least it’s better now. These fires are so scary! Happy Thanksgiving and stay safe.
