Have a grateful Thanksgiving! Usually, this blog takes major holidays off, but I am feeling unusually thankful this year and I have to express it. Our whole family is here. This is the FIRST time the clan with all of its members is all in one place, since it now includes a new member, the granddaughter who is only three months old. Not to mention yet another member who is here, but not born. We will also have some other guests: my Australian son-in-law’s mother visiting from down under, and my other daughter’s good friend who has just moved to the area. So I offer a special Thanksgiving edition of this blog.
