Fun Fact For The Week: Sarah Josepha Hale, an American magazine editor, persuaded Abraham Lincoln to declare Thanksgiving as a national holiday. She is also the author of the popular nursery rhyme, “Mary Had A Little Lamb”.
Pet Peeve For The Week: The fact that my neighbors won’t support me in shunning the amazing Sue Edner who has her house decorated like something out of House Beautiful! Really, Sue! I still have Halloween pumpkins out. If only you would come over to my house and decorate it for me preferably while I was a work! Your house is beautiful and so are you!
It’s no secret that Thanksgiving may be my most favorite holiday. Everyone is together at our house and I seem to be smiling all the time. Thanksgiving Dinner means family dinner and gratitude for loved ones, good health and good fortune. But let us not forget those who are less fortunate than us. Please give to available food banks so that everyone can have an enjoyable dinner on ThanksgivingDay.
Good wishes to all the hunters out there; have fun, but please be safe!
