Happy Thanksgiving

I searched for some fun photos for this post because I want to begin my Thanksgiving celebration with a few good laughs. I need them, especially after enduring a few busy and somewhat stressful weeks of doing dull errands and rushing to finish outdoor chores before darkness covers my world at the early hour of 5:00 p.m. in the afternoon.

I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!  I would also like to take a moment to send positive healing wishes to my fellow WordPress bloggers who are sick or facing other difficult circumstances this year. Take care of yourselves, and I hope things will get better. 🙂

Turkey Trots

Wikipedia describes a turkey trot as a “fun run or footrace, usually of the long-distance variety, that is held on or around Thanksgiving Day in the United States.” It further notes that “[m]ost turkey trots benefit local charities.”

Raborn was selected to be “chased” by a variety of coalition runners from ISAF’s contributing nations. More than 100 runners showed up for the event despite gusty winds and rain-soaked roads.

        1. Thank you for your concern for my dad. I hope he gets better too. And thank you for liking the butterfly sketches I posted on Imagine New Designs Gallery. I miss creating artwork, and I hope I will be able to draw and paint some new illustrations soon. I hope you enjoy your weekend too. 🙂
