Thanksgiving is almost here

I find it hard to believe Thanksgiving is almost here. But then again, I saw the crazy grocery shopping start this week, so that should have been a been indication. We got to the stores early for our weekly trip and by the time we left the second store, the parking lot was getting quite full.

I have to admit I'm a bit jealous of those of you who earned free turkeys! Sadly our stores did not have any of those great offers. I remember growing up, my father would be given a turkey for Thanksgiving and a ham for Christmas. I wonder if many employers do that anymore. 

I invited a friend from church to join us for Thanksgiving. I had invited some others, but they had better offers. No, I'm kidding. They were already invited so that was fine. I just don't want to see someone spend the holiday alone. 

Our church Christmas bazaar is coming up. I'm not sure how they are going to do it with the Covid requirements, but knowing these ladies, they will work something out. We wear masks at church and for any activities, and they wear gloves during the bazaar, so I imagine that will continue to be a part of it. They are not having a luncheon like they used to. 

I hope you have many things to be grateful for this year. I know I do. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

    My previous employer used to do a nice holiday basket. My current employer used to allow virtually-connected colleagues to expense a nice dinner out for the holidays but they stopped several years ago when the tax implications became too much paperwork. So just the office-based colleagues get the festivities now.

    It's so nice of you to invite others to Thanksgiving dinner! My MIL used to do that. We never knew what extra folks would be there. It made for an interesting gathering.

    We've never invited folks for Thanksgiving since the kids made it a fairly hectic event but the thought occurred to me (too late) this year. DS3 told me that the other members of the university tennis team don't go home for Thanksgiving since they are international students so they are grouping together and taking a trip to NYC. Had I known that I would have considered inviting them to our place. Maybe next year.
