That’s a lot of th in the title today.
There’s much to be grateful for as a daily practice, not limited to Thanksgiving.
I am paying tribute and expressing gratitude for good parents. I found this photo today and remembered our Thanksgivings together. And apart. An inscription of gratitude for their friendship was on the back of the photo, written by friends Ethel and Coleman Ives who must have mailed them the photo. I believe it’s taken in New Haven, Connecticut.
Once, when I was missing my mother snd father so strongly, in the depths of grief, a counselor advised me to do for others what my parents did for me.
My parents set a good example of how to be loving and caring humans which I’ve tried to pass on to my own family. ❤️

Joanne writes from Florida:
So …. one day last month I was on the phone catching up with my friend Colleen who lives in Nova Scotia. As we were talking about her new cookbook purchase, Ina Garten’s “Modern Comfort Food“, my doorbell rang and a package was delivered. I opened it while talking and it was a copy of the same book! What are the odds? My dear friend Ruth had sent it as a surprise. Colleen and I decided we would each pick some recipes to try out and share our results. Here are the photos of our month-long project. Fun and nice way to keep in touch. Overall we both agree that Ina Garten’s recipes are easy to prepare and almost always turn out looking exactly like her descriptions and photos.
We’re looking forward to trying out another cookbook author soon.”
The second bloom iris is at it again with a new bloom and there are at least three more to open if they don’t freeze some night soon.
I found this photo is my archives.

While up on a roof, checking out a potential building in downtown Millvale, Amy McCall saw this scene. She sent me this intriguing photograph. I asked if she be guest blogger today and she consented.
What’s the story? Write a caption for this photo- up on the roof. There’s definitely a story here.
You’ve met Amy and her yarn store, McWalker Yarns, on the blog before .

At first I thought they were my grandparents, Judd and Charlotte VanSickle.
I don’t even know who owned the camera.
