This is Thanksgiving Week

Big Plans At The White House in Kingsport
Yes, indeed. Work is underway for a great weekend and a great Thanksgiving Day. We expecting about 21 at our home for our Thanksgiving Day feast. Grandmother has been very busy since we returned from Florida. I’ve been exposed to some enticing aromas from the baking of cakes, the preparation of Chex Mix, and some advance cooking. We’ll have 3 tables set up to accommodate our wonderful family. I’m excited!

Here’s the group picture from last year.


We hope to get a new photograph this year.

Be sure to count your blessings.
Life itself is a wonderful gift.

Quote of the Day
The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts.  No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.

Joke of the Day

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude."

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "But how did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "You don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You've made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you expect ME to solve your problem. You're in EXACTLY the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now, it's MY fault.

Hey Jim, Everything sounds wonderful for Thanksgiving at your house....I can almost smell the turkey cooking 100 miles away. Thanks again for the heads up on the JFK was really good....don't agree with everything they said, but very interesting & well done. I will do commentary on my JFK Assassination Blog on it later today. Great to hear DAD has a new Willard would say..."What's Ray going to do with the OLD one?????"
