I am very thankful for all my loyal Followers and also the other folks who read my blog.  I am thankful for the wonderful comments I receive.  And I'm thankful for two new followers:

WELCOME to Karen, our new follower!  It's nice to have you along for our journey.  I don't see a blog listed for you, let me know if you start one.

And WELCOME to Tom at Big Sky Chief, a man who cooks!  It's nice to have you along to share our daily adventures as we prepare to RV full-time.

I'm thankful for this RV blogging community.  I'm thankful for having my dream to RV full-time with my dog, Katie.  When I am able to follow through with this dream, it will open so many doors to  me and also solve a lot of problems I would otherwise have when I retire.  It will be, I hope, the perfect solution to retirement for me.  I can't wait! : )

The first Thanksgiving was in 1621 and lasted three days!  That sounds like a long holiday, but these days most of us get four days off, so...  Lucky Us!

I'm thankful for so many things.  I'm not going to list the things I'm thankful for - it would be too long.  Every year it grows.  All year long I appreciate my family - I have two wonderful kids who've given me five perfect grandchildren and they would top the list, and of course Katie.

I'm sitting here typing as I watch the Macy's Parade - there's a really good float of a huge turkey going down the road right now.  I'm thankful even for little things like that.  I'm in my warm home, Katie is laying out in the sun on the patio, four days off ahead of me. A fridge full of food, cupboards full enough to find almost anything I'd need for any recipe I'd care to make.  A car full of gas - I can drive anywhere I want.  Great neighbors around me.  These are the kinds of things I'm lucky enough to have all year long, and I DO appreciate them all year long.

 Isn't he beautiful?

My son and his family drove up to visit my daughter and her family in Vacaville, and I know they are all going to have soooo much fun.  The grandchildren all love to be together, so it's a treat for them when the families visit.  I'll see them all together during Christmas week down here in San Diego, and I'm looking forward to that.

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving everyone, from Me and My Dog, Katie! : )


  1. And have a Happy Thanksgiving yourself. We do have so much to be thankful for!

  2. Very nice post today. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Kate, I so enjoyed taking Michelle to the Parade somehow being there is a little more exciting that TV. The Dressed up Characters that interact with the kids along the way and throw candy for them make it such a great day, I would pick up some and give it to the little ones in the strollers around us. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  4. Yes, there is so much to be thankful for.

    For one, thanks for stopping by my blog and the holiday wishes! I hope Katie didn't eat as much ham and turkey as Doris did!

  5. Nothing is right about Thankggiving until I watch that Macy's Day Thanksgiving Parade!

  9. Sorry to be late, Happy Thanksgiving yesterday. I wanted to say after your comment about how the hummingbird looked in my last picture. I think it was all puffed up because of the cold. I had never seen them like that before. They're back to their slim selves today since it's warmed up 20 or so degrees.

  10. What a nice Thanksgiving post you wrote! Enjoy the rest of your 4-day weekend!!!


Thank you for your comments - we LOVE them!
