Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving! This picture is circa 1963 and features my Dad and my Aunt Laura. I think we are waiting for the bird to get up and walk out of the room!

My Dad loved Thanksgiving! My Mom always stuffed the bird, and Dad like to pretend he was a surgeon. After I moved away from home, I would get a phone call every Thanksgiving morning telling me not to call the house because he was getting ready to go into surgery!

We had many memorable Thanksgivings - from custard pies that Aunt Verna brought every year that we all hated, but ate anyway . . . . . . the sink disposal backing up at clean up time . . . . . . the year everything had raisins in it . . . . . . the year the turkey took forever to get done . . . . and of course, my family, who I dearly miss.

I'm thinking of them today and thankful to have had them in my life - Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Phyllis, Laura, Johnny, Verna, Ed, and Ted Sr.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Home Sweet Home!

On a cool, rainy day, Ted arrived in Arizona to stay for good! We moved here the end of July, but he only stayed a week, and then had to get back to Kentucky to finish up some work projects and hang around until our house sold!

The timing was perfect - we have a buyer for our Kentucky house and will close in a couple of weeks. And he is here in time to watch the cats while I work on one of the crews for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure in Phoenix which starts on Thursday.

He was glad to get here after three long days of driving and going through sleet and snow in northern Arizona!

Violet and Gleek were so happy to see their Daddy. Newman hid for about 15 minutes, but then realized who Ted was, and things were back to normal in no time!

We have all missed him so much, and now our family feels complete! Welcome home, Ted!
