Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!
Whether you live here in the US, or somewhere else in the world, we should take a moment to give thanks for what we have. I have always been a person with the attitude that "the glass is half full" (vs. half empty), so by nature I have a positive frame of mind. But regardless of the challenges in our lives, find something to be thankful for and smile, at least for today.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us:


Above: Koshimi and Owen eagerly await their slice of turkey & Dr Wang is having special flakes of food today.

Above left: Our dedicated household staff: Our loyal housekeeper, Mrs Danvers was up early to arrange the floral centerpiece, iron the table linens and polish the silver. Above right: our cook, Mrs Smith has been busy making her signature pies and fresh baked breads. Fortunately Mrs Smith's scandalous daughter Shanaynay is working in Vegas tonight so she won't be visiting.

Marlupe- being British, Mrs Danvers doesn't really celebrate Thanksgiving herself. However, she is coming on the cruise with us starting Sunday, of course!

Happy T-Day to you too, Savant! My, what a busy household you have. I'm sorry to hear that Shanaynay won't make it. What's Thanksgiving without scandal?

Rick-- you have the life I often dream of!


Is the glass half full or half empty? For me, it depends what's in the glass and what I can fill it with! (You have me thinking-- I have nine kids and am in college full time and do a million things. All day, I fill glasses with juice, Kool-Aid, whatever. My personal drink of choice is an Alaskan Amber!)


I love your blogs! You are extremely talented and I can tell that you are a dash of spice everywhere you go!
