Some might think this day in America is a bit overdone, and that we really should practice gratitude every day. Of course, I certainly am a believer in the latter, but I also think it's a fine thing to set aside a day or two dedicated to such. Whether it's traditions you cherish, or simply a moment to catch your breath in these crazy times we live in, I hope that you and your loved ones are able to enjoy a few moments together to count your blessings. A very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from our humble old house in the Virginia hills, and may your special dinner be not overdone but rather done just right.
And a Happy Birthday to my Grandfather Andrew McKnight who would be 115 today :).
