Thanksgiving

We will be taking the day off tomorrow. So today we take the opportunity to wish all of our readers a Very Happy Thanksgiving!

My maternal grandfather was born in Hungary. He learned the butcher's trade when he was just eleven years old. When he was a young adult he moved to the United States, where he worked as a butcher until he retired. At almost every meal that I shared with him he would look at his full plate of food and exclaim, "We eat good in America!"  How true.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving, Philip, from your NC Mainlander.

    And, your grandfather was so right! We are fortunate in many ways in America.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all! I'm very thankful for Ocracoke....even if it's only for one week out of the year, I'm always thankful it's there waiting for my family! Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you, Philip, for keeping all of us up to date on news, events (some of them ancient), and the history of one of our favorite places. We're truly grateful for your efforts. From the webcams, it looks like a glorious week down there. Missed celebrating the holiday there, as in year's passed, and starting our days at 7 with java and an everything bagel, toasted, with cream cheese, at the Ocracoke Coffee Company. Here's hoping for next year.

    Thanks Phillip! Glad you had a great day! You might look up the Master's Singing Butcher Club by Louise Eurdrick (I think) A fun curious read and likely you can relate! SueM

  10. Sue M: Thanks! I checked out the book -- great reviews -- so I ordered one for my brother for Christmas (he doesn't have a computer, so this post won't spoil the secret!).

    PS: A book that can be described as "curious" gets my attention.
