Happy Thanksgiving 2020

 🦃 Happy Thanksgiving, USA! 🦃

  What is there to be thankful for in 2020? 

I'm healthy.  My family is healthy.  The only person I know who had COVID-19 is now healthy.  A vaccine is on the way.  Remember even once you get the vaccine you need to wear a mask, as the vaccine will keep you from getting sick, not from getting infected with the virus and able to pass it on.

 We can be thankful a new President is a few short weeks away!  The past four years, with 2020 as the finale year, have been hard.

So, enjoy the day, be thankful, and be safe.  Wear those masks, keep your distance, and as much as you want to, do not hug those relatives you haven't seen since last Thanksgiving!

(The photo is from my Thanksgiving a few years ago.  This year my turkey is staying in the freezer. I did not grow the decorative corn or most of the gourds in the photo.  I did grow the mini pumpkins and turban gourds.  The candles are vintage Gurley.  The large turkey and pilgrim couple were always on my family's table for Thanksgiving, the smaller turkeys and native Americans were my grandmother's.  Once she died, they passed on to my family, so the Thanksgiving group is complete!)




  1. My late mother in law had a vintage Turkey candle. I can remember it since "forever" (the first Thanksgiving I had with her was 1975) and I wonder if it was a Gurley candle. I just looked at some on eBay and they look so similar except the tom's feathers didn't have the white marks I see on yours and many of the ones on eBay. I think she had it for years before I entered her life. It's disappeared now - I don't remember there being a label on the bottom. Anyway, enjoyed seeing your complete set and now I've learned something...

    1. Gurley were very popular I think. And cheap, my labels say 10 cents! 1975, that's the year I was married, at just 18! Never had a Thanksgiving at my in-laws, they moved away as soon as their son moved out! They bought a house before he even graduated.

  2. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
