Happy Thanksgiving

Our son, Jason, has teamed up with a friend of his to compete in BBQ cook-offs. They were entered in one on November 6 and they won first place in the amateur division. They won $500 and a huge trophy!! They entered another on November 20, here in Blythewood, SC, and they took 6th place. So they are off to a great start and seem to really enjoy doing it.

We have already begun to celebrate Thanksgiving. We had our family get together with my Mom on Sunday and everyone except my son, his wife and youngest daughter were there. Kaydee, our little 4 year old, was sick and could not go. We had a great time and lots of good food. I am so thankful that my Mom is doing so well even though she has many health issues. She did, however, overdo it while trying to prepare food and get ready for everyone to converge at her place!! Will probably take her a week or more to recover.

We are also invited to share a Thanksgiving meal with our son-in-law’s family on Thanksgiving day. We are looking forward to seeing them all again. Oh how I do love the turkey and all the trimmings!!

Charley’s Dad is visiting this week (93 years young, remember) and is currently at my brother-in-law’s home. He will be coming to spend a few days with us over the weekend before we get him back home. He is still doing very well.

We are so thankful that our entire family still remains in good health overall and seem to be prospering even in light of our country’s current economic situation. We do hope that this continues into the holiday season and the new year ahead.

Charley and I hope that all of you readers/followers out there will have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
