THANKSGIVING THOUGHTS

Thanksgiving, 2020 My heart is never silent. Sometimes it talks too much. Please don't tell me, dear heart, Of those I have loved and lost. Most of my large, fun, family in heaven. Their raucous laughter and songs still ring in my ears. The astonishing foods with family. And who had fears? They went off to WWll. And all came back whole again. No rage against the red, white and blue. Which today, I most certainly would eschew. Their time was served with dignity _ I can't stand living in a world where "it's all about me." This is the saddest Thanksgiving of my life. One where integrity means nothing. Where stealth and dishonesty are now right? There's no person to blame, we let evil take over. And, we, locked at home like dogs named Rover! Where boys cannot play baseball anymore? No great runs to score. Worse, only ten may come to our Thanksgiving door? 11-26-2020

Happy memories for sure, times like these you always cast your mind back to happier times when other family members were alive. It can be an emotional time. Tom

They were such a boisterous and fun group. Tons of love laughter, piano music, dancing. No obnoxious technology, calls, My grandmother had a dial wall phone in a walk in closet. Perfect. Who wants to hear another talking to a person, not there. Grandma was smart.i come from a background oh a family who were anything but solemn. I grew up on music and fun times. Mom had 7 siblings.at Christmas one dressed like Santa, we all feared the lump of coal.))yes, I miss them...jokesters, all of them. Pangie xx
