JAMI: Boldog születés napot kivánok!

(Hope Dad's Hungarian is correct.
I know you'll tell us if it isn't!) Ha!

Lordy, Lordy,
Look Who's Forty!

*If you're wondering about the song playing ('Laura'),
it's one that Tadela used to sing to you
when you were a baby. I couldn't find a good vocal
arrangement of it.


Here it is...the day after Thanksgiving....the biggest shopping day
of the year. Stores are opening earlier and earlier: 6 am; 5 am; 4 am.
Shoppers camp outside, waiting for the doors to open.
I understand one store is planning to open at 12:01 am! Yikes!

Perhaps you haven't even had time to make your list yet, and
you're wondering what in the world you're going to get that
'person who has EVERYTHING?'
Well, ponder no more. Here's an idea for the perfect Christmas gift
(& it's only $300!).


Even the chipmunks are celebrating today!

To be serious, we should be thankful EVERY day of our lives for God's wonderful love to us, and our many blessings, but isn't it nice to have one day set aside to give thanks & be mindful of all He has done for us! How could we ever really give adequate thanks? Here are three verses that I really like. I hope you can read the small print on the bottom one!

May God bless you richly...TODAY, and EVERYDAY!

Don't you just love planning and cooking a big Thanksgiving meal? I do!



We will be spending Thanksgiving at home
in North Carolina this year.
Two of our favorite cousins will be joining us.
Most of our family is in Florida, however, so we're sending these
early wishes to you all.
May you have a safe, happy, & Blessed Thanksgiving!!
We love you!!

SUPERMARKET AMBIENCE (also sp. 'ambiance')

A new supermarket opened near my house. It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain.

When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and you experience the scent of fresh mown hay.

In the meat department, there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks with onions.

When you approach the egg case, you hear clucking and cackling, and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.

The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh baked bread and cookies.

......I don't buy toilet paper there anymore.


A few weeks ago, my friend Trudy and I found this pair of shoes in a thrift shop.
($3.00, what a deal!)
No, we don't usually buy our shoes in a thrift shop, but, read on...............

When Trudy took the shoes to the counter to pay for them , we told the sales gal that one shoe was for Trudy, & one shoe for me. Needless to say, she looked at us like we were a little bit crazy!

Stay tuned to see what the shoes are for.


Have a beautiful Lord's Day!
