Here I am back in Massachusetts with Beth and Dale and my grandsons. I flew up here yesterday. Yes, the airport was packed and the flight was delayed a few hours. But here I am! This morning they all got up early and ran the local "Feaster Five" race. Grammy was allowed to sleep in. They got home with medals and ribbons and giveaway apple pies.

A highlight last night was that the boys are teaching me to play chess. What fun! They are so smart I can't get over it.

Dinner will be ready in about an hour and it smells wonderful. Have a beautiful day, everyone. I will include all of you dear blogging friends in my prayer of thanks.

P.S. Today is my birthday!! I think I am officially old -- ha ha!

Have a very happy day, celebrating for lots of reasons.

NO - NO - NO! YOU ARE NOT OFFICIALLY OLD! Cause if you are, then I'm going to be old too!

Hope you're having a wonderful time with Beth and the boys.

Good Afternoon Violetlady,
I am here a day late, but better late than not, from Mary of Mary's Writing Nook to wish you a "HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY". Also, "HAPPY THANKSGIVNG" also. I know it's late, but I didn't read Mary's post until a bit ago. I do hope that you and your family had a great time yesterday. I cooked dinner for us and my parents and sister came up and ate with us. We all ate too much. I have my own blog called "Karen's Korner". Please feel free to stop by sometime. I always enjoy meeting and getting aquainted with new friends. Well, take care my new friend and have a great Friday. Maya God Bless You and Yours.

Karen H.

Happy Birthday and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! You are only as old as you feel (which makes me 93). :)
