  3. They are all up there with the best, but my pic-o-the-day is the birdhouse, a very talented man or lady put their skills to wonderful purpose. So fitting where it is, Jean.

  46. Hi Friend, Just stopping by to say Happy Thanksgiving to you. Even in places where Thanksgiving is not celebrated (or celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November like ours is) —it can be a time for each of us to take time to thank God for our blessings and also not to forget the “Giving” in the word, ThanksGIVING. We all have lots of blessings —but many times, we ignore the giving part….Not just on Thanksgiving Day, but all of the time, please take time to contact family/friends just to say HI… And remember that a big SMILE can lift someone’s day…. Little things like that can really HELP..

    Great set of photos, Terri... Thanks!

    God Bless…
    Happy Thanksgiving.
    Hugs,
    Betsy
