Ally and I are missing our home in Breck. It was always a fun place to be on Thanksgiving where our family gathered and Ally brought all the orphans from the ski area where she worked to join us. The mountain on the right between the trees is Quandary. The front railing on the porch held the turkey roaster with the carcass and scraps for the Canada and Stellar jays to pick clean while we enjoyed our dinner. Those were very happy times.
Ally and I are looking forward to being “home” in Ellsworth with all the family we can muster together this year…Todd, Karen and Tyler. Karen is fixing her famous Butterball turkey dinner with all the trimmings and we’re all looking forward to it. It’s always lip-smacking good. Tyler will be the only representative of the grandchild generation and we’re very much looking forward to having him home and hearing about his recent trip to and experiences in South Africa.
Some of my neighbors here at the “Palace” will be heading to the homes of their children and grandchildren. Others, lacking any family, will have a nice Thanksgiving dinner here “at home” with friends. No one will be alone at this time.
I hope everyone has a very happy holiday weekend with family and friends.
Thanks for tuning in…
