Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving
Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving...

When did Thanksgiving first become the start of the shopping event of the year?
It was always the holiday to share with family and friends, to give thanks for all we have, and enjoy just being together.
Thanksgiving was the day to share family time, eat some traditional foods, relax together and catch up on conversation. That's how memories are made.
It makes me sad to see that businesses are open, that people are preparing to shop at mid-night, that the stores are forgetting their employees have lives.
Sad, just sad.

D-Day, June 6th, 1944

vic cortner 

 Do not forget the invasion of Normandy, 1944. 
The men who were there, lived with that traumatic experience their entire lives. 
They are now in their 90s, if they have not yet died of old age, but the memories of June 6th are burned in their hearts and minds and will never be forgotten.

Rough Waters

No snow like up north, but plenty of wind and rain for the last few days. The arctic blast from the north has created some rather treacherous sea conditions in southern Florida.
