Thanksgiving

People's experiences on Thanksgiving are different and its always interesting to hear about the differences, or see them.
For instance...

Thanksgiving in Wyoming -

Thanksgiving in Tennessee -
(picture compliments of my cousin-in-law Tiffany. Sorry for the blur. It was a facebook post that I enlarged, but that's Queen Anne's Lace, my favorite wild flower, blooming on Thanksgiving day!)


We actually did have a fine Thanksgiving, despite the blowing snow on Elk Mountain. We loaded Thanksgiving morning and stopped in Laramie for a decent, if not home cooked wonderful, Thanksgiving dinner, before heading on east.

Malcolm was feeling under the weather and with some kind of bug he'd picked up the previous weekend, but he seems much better today. And despite the weather, the illness, and the being at work instead of at home, I still felt we had much to be thankful for. God has blessed our life in tremendous ways. We are blessed with unique experiences, material goods, and wonderful relationships with others, including you, my blogging world friends.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and found just as many reasons to be Thankful!

WOW - that's what you call a "white-out", right? I bet that makes driving awfully slow, if not impossible. Do you ever have to pull over and just wait those conditions out or is it just best to get through and beyond it?
Glad to hear your Thanksgiving was a pleasant one, even if you weren't able to be home this time.
Please wish Malcolm a "gute Besserung" (get well soon) from me.
:-)
