Happy Thanksgiving

Well, early in the morning Hubby and I will attempt to fit ourselves into our overstuffed Avalon for the first leg of our long anticipated trip.  We have been sorting and packing and trying desperately to imagine the need for coats and sweaters for the north while parading around in shorts and sleeveless tops in this 80 degree Louisiana weather.  How does one pack for a month of ice and snow while the air conditioner continues to cycle?

The first stop will be in College Station, TX to visit some of our pre-marriage friends who have been out of touch until recently.  We are so looking forward to catching up on all the interim years.  Derry is retired from the A&M School of  Veterinary Medicine.  Tomorrow, we will be privileged to attend their Retirees Luncheon and hear an outstanding choral presentation.

Then we will join our daughter and her family in Carrollton, TX for Thanksgiving.  We love our tradition of sharing this special day with these precious people for whom we are so grateful.
Then, we head north to Lucus Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana to watch our only grandson play for the state 5-A title in High School football.  He is only a Junior and starting varsity, so this is a huge event for him and his family.  We are thrilled to be a part of this special day.
We will remain with our son and his family for the month of December while anticipating a White Christmas.

Happy Thanksgiving to each of you, and may your time spent with those special ones in your life be an overflowing blessing.  Dick and I are so very thankful for you in our lives.

Libby
