Last to first:

Kathy! Exhale. Tomorrow will be great! I KNOW IT! Hard work ALWAYS pays off! Get out the umbrellas for your slushies! Stick that turkey n and have some FUN now! ALOHA NOI!


Oh. Sister Pat. YOU MAKE ME LAUGH! So whose aren't? HA! SO, SO FUNNY! I learned, as a teen, that my grandmother's great great great PEOPLE were chicken thieves! IMAGINE MY SHOCK AND SHAME!!! (Peep, peep, PEEP!)

Please take a special moment and be thankful! (For whatever you can think up!) Even if you aren't eating TURKEY! Okay? HA! I love you!

-Little Sis :D !!!


Oh Sister. I love your divided loyalties like mine! :) As USA and CANADIAN brothers and sisters we ALL love each other and want the best for each of us!

THIS SUNDAY ... 19 years ago ... I moved to Canada! No regrets.

- Sis :D

(BTW...I am bad in if I said 20 years -ANYWHERE ELSE- I retract...It is 19!)

* are you. Don't think for a second that you are NOT! (A B.O.F.A.)


Monnie. Same to YOU and thank you so much! :)!!!



Mumj! :) ... Of all the people I have been honored to met on BP, YOU are so special to me....And YOU would know the most how much BP as changed my life...OH..SO MUCH FOR THE GOOD!

I am an AMERICAN living in CANADA.

I love BOTH Countries and understand so much how we are ALL brothers and sisters here. Even MUMZIES and daughters! It's wonderful and delightful.


Folks... we KNOW this for a fact.

With BP we can feel ALL THE WAY ROUND THE WORLD like brothers and sisters. As one.

Photography may have brought us all together but we KNOW that there is a special KINSHIP that surpasses this.

FOR THIS MAGICAL THING...I am thankful each day. Not just on Thanksgiving.

Another inspired creation, Laura. I don't know where all your energy and creativity comes from...How do you do it? You must also have the most well-developed typing muscles in your fingers! Happy Thanksgiving to the American side of you! Hey...the Canadian side is allowed in on this too!

Better late than never they say. I would have been disappointed if you didn't post an appropriate image for today. Well done my friend.

The trip is about 20 percent mapped out now. Always have fun doing this. Great winter pastime.

You guys sure know how to make me smile and laugh!

Thanks so much. Each of you.




P.S. Thinking back to last Thanksgiving when I had my first piece of "Blackberry" pie. Remembering it fondly.


Don't eat too much Folks!
