Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving, the great All-American holiday in my book, is just a great time to be together and remember what life has brought us: family, friends, high school and college football games and a great deal of wonderful food spread out on a wonderful table all defined by Turkey size and aromatics.
I wish you all the best holiday and hope we all can celebrate the joys of life and feel safe in these uncertain times. Thanksgiving, always celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, Celebrates the Pilgrims first harvest in 1621 with a feast. Pilgrims should not to be confused with Puritans who established Massachusetts Bay Colony, Boston, in 1628.
