Mom was remembering the Thanksgivings from the far past, when the whole family would gather together when she lived in Southern California.
Everyone would take turns hosting, and Mom liked it best when our Grammy had it..
It would take days to get ready..The house would be spotless and all the fun of shopping for just the right Turkey and fixings..
They had wonderful decorations of Pilgrims and Indians and faux fall leaves, that were placed on the piano and sideboard..Mom's favorite was a huge fold open Turkey that sat in the middle of the dining table until it was time to eat..
Soon, the relatives would arrive with side dishes of potato salad and pies and all the good things that make dinner special
There was always a lot of laughter and chatting and hugging ..
When it was time to eat, everyone would sit down and they would hold hands and say the blessing and give thanks for being together..
After dinner the table would be cleared and the food stored until it was time to snack later...
Most everyone would sit at the table and play cards and talk about how it was when they were growing up..Like the time Grammy and her sisters stole some of their Dads tobacco and tried to smoke, but set the outhouse on fire, and the time they were making up the roll away bed and closed one of their sisters up in it...
Mom used to love these stories, it was so much fun to hear that her Mom wasn't such a little angel...bol
Time passes and the only constant is change..
We are truly thankful for having our Mom and Dad to love us, a wonderful farm to live on ...and all our pals here on Dogster..
May you always have special memories and have a wonderful Thanksgiving

SO many pals stepped up for our pal Cheyenne, who is now safe at home.
Time to get those paws moving, this is a project with many purposes! The main goal is to get even more pups & people aware of BLUE's plight outside our immediate circles, it is also with hopefully the strength in numbers a way to show the ever watching dogster crew our efforts & determination (we have more reasons and ideas rolling that need dogster's support and partnership).
It involves diaries and a game of tag!
BUT it is unique!
What we need every pup to do is:
First write an entry in your diary titled "Feeling BLUE" (If you don't have a diary now is as good a reason to start if any!) Then write a message expressing how it feels to miss BLUE or friend or how you would feel if you were lost/separated from your family.
PLEASE include this information (ok to cut & paste) in your diary.
Blue, a black and white Siberian Husky (4 year old male, brown eyes, micro
chipped) has been missing since May 8, 2007 from Brighton, MI.
Dogster page: http://www.dogster.com/dogs/620507
Website : http://whereisblue.com
Telephone: (313) 550-6095
Reward offered for his return, no questions asked.
Permission and gratitude for cross posting. Thank you!
Next pick 5 to 10 pals* ****important**** make sure they are unique as in pals of yours that might not run in the same social circles as we want the tag to reach out not move in circles amongst us or tag pals with many different pup pals and send pawmail or rosettes including a message..
If I where ever lost, or seperated from my family, I would feel completely lost... I wouldn't know what to do, or when to do it... Since my family is EVERYTHING to me... I am nothing without them, and I love them so, just they feel about me.
And I'm sure it's the same thing with sweet Blue. We aren't really his pup pals, but we will do anything to help him get back home. After all, who doesn't love a happy ending like Cheyenne's??? We would LOVE sooo much to see Blue back with his family!!!!
So please, PLEASE, everyone who happens to read this, PLEASE send this to as many people as you can!! For I am SURE Blue will be back safe and sound with his family soon!!!
