Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite holiday! I have a lot to be thankful for this year and as of yesterday I have two more things.

Larry and I planned out our Thanksgiving menu in preparation of the big Thanksgiving grocery shopping event with 50 billion other holiday shoppers. The weather by us has recently turned a bit chilly, so Larry grabbed a jacket that he hadn’t worn since last February. He put it on, stuck his hand inside an inner pocket and found a $100 bill! Neither of us can figure out how it got there but we’re not complaining!

The grocery store was packed which makes the shopping adventure a great deal more fun. We picked out our necessities for the week and the items we’d need to go with our main dish for Thanksgiving and then made our way to check out the many bins of turkeys. I thought the turkeys were kind of expensive…like over $20 for an 9 pound turkey and up. Then, a fellow shopper caught Larry’s attention and directed him to another bin. Inside, less then 20 turkeys remained and we discovered why the bin was so wiped out as we chose for ourselves a most perfect 14.5 lb turkey for $5.57!

This holiday season, I hope you are the recipient of treasures and bargains too! And on behalf of everyone at, here’s to a fantabulous Thanksgiving for you and yours and a very bright and magical holiday season!
