I hope all you readers enjoyed a happy Thanksgiving holiday weekend despite the pandemic. I enjoyed the special day. I was privileged to be with two of my sons. We enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, dressing, gravy, ham, mashed potatoes, green beans and ambrosia. Most importantly, we were very thankful to be together. However, we missed those of our family who could not be with us.
Happy birthday to my maternal cousin, Betty Willingham, Nov. 24, my niece, Ginger Knight, Nov. 30, my great-great niece, Janna Black, Dec. 2, my great-great nephew, Brody Blair, Dec. 4 and lastly to my grandson, Stephan Scott, Nov. 25.
