Happy Thanksgiving

    I've got a lot to be thankful for this year.  We are all healthy and employed.  November 2012 has been wonderful for my family, and I'll give you my short list of what made it so special for us.
     First of all, President Obama was re-elected without the need for a recount or any legal involvement.  I believe he deserves a second term, and look forward to a growing  economy with a strong middle class. I am hopeful that the next four years will be better than the last.  My state of New Hampshire made history because it elected the first all female delegation.  Our governor, both Senators, and both members of Congress are all women.  I am excited, and wish them all well, because we have so much work to do.
      Next, my Dad turned eighty-five on November 11, and ten of us celebrated with a cruise to Cozumel, Mexico.  Our dinner table consisted of the three sisters and our husbands, as well as our brother and his wife, and Dad and June.  We enjoyed fabulous meals and our excellent waitstaff pampered us daily.  We saw three awesome shows, won some money at the casino, and played trivia games.  There were too many things happening each day, but we managed to find a good mix of activity and relaxation.  We watched line dance competitions, and name that tune game shows by the pool.  We shopped for the daily specials, and took in as many activities as possible.  The on shore excursions were a lot of fun.  As always it is tough to say good-bye, but we are all happy that we were able to spend the week together.  We had a lot of laughs, and made some nice memories.
        This Thursday we celebrate Thanksgiving, and we will get together again.  This time some of our children will be at dinner, and we'll try to see everyone through the weekend.  I am lucky to have my family close, and we still enjoy spending time together.  We do have a lot to be thankful for.....and I'd like to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.....and the beat goes on....the beat goes on.....
