Happy Thanksgiving

We have much to be thankful for this year -- we have enough.

"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Goodbye." ~Bob Perks

I'm also thankful that the daughter who made the turkey in the photo has grown into a fine young woman. Unfortunately, I don't know which daughter made the turkey as she didn't sign it, but since all my daughters are fine young women, I stand by what I wrote!

And our newspaper announced this morning that Forbes Magazine named our town The Best Educated Town in the US. "The most-educated city in America: Boulder, Colo., home to the University of Colorado with high-tech employers like IBM and Sun Microsystems to keep alumni in the area after they graduate." Impressive? Maybe, maybe not. Never really thought that having a degree (and yes, I do) makes one a better person. Or even a good person. And that's what we need more of -- good people! Nonetheless, Forbes has given us this title and incidentally, our neighbor to the north, Ft. Collins, was named the 10th Best Educated.

Chubby hands on little children are SO CUTE! Anything else is --- unnatural!
