Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to our family and friends.  The past year has had it's share of health scares from a number of people who we love and care about.  They have come through it and are moving along nicely.  We are very thankful for their progress.

Gerry and I are in Arlington, TX celebrating Thanksgiving with our good friends Judy and Herb.  We met them in Abidjan in 1983. They came to our house there the next couple years, as long as Judy wasn't back in the U.S. on shift change.  Larry Jr. and I had Thanksgiving dinner with them in 1985 while Gerry came back to the States for the birth of our granddaughter Stephanie.

2006 was the year that friends Gloria & Doug, along with Judy and Herb joined us for Thanksgiving dinner at the Cactus Country RV Resort in Tucson, AZ.

We arrived here yesterday and intend to spend a couple days visiting with them, maybe longer after looking at the weather forecast.  There is a major rain event forecast for the next three days.  They are calling for flooding with rain totals of 1 to 2 inches of rain each day.  We are on high ground with our campsite so flooding won't be a problem for us.

We hope you all have a great Thanksgiving celebration with those you love as you count your blessings.


  1. 9 yrs ago. Time flies...... Happy Thanksgiving to you, Gerry, Judy and Herb.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to y'all also. What a blessed day it is.
    Keep safe with all that rain. I think ours begins tomorrow here in Houston.

  3. Happy turkey day. Spending time with good friends is a wonderful way to celebrate. And a healthy, getting better family - even better. Stay safe and I'm hoping you don't become an island.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you both. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
