Patricia Teel took me for my doctor’s visit on Wednesday. I received a good report.

I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving.

I Remember

As a young girl growing up on a farm I always looked forward to every holiday, some more than others. Thanksgiving was always very special to me. The fall season was my favorite. Our home was surrounded by trees. In the fall there seemed to be a magic touch everywhere as the leaves changed into all those lovely colors. It was like a picture being painted.

As I look back, I remember one very special Thanksgiving. We lived like all poor people back in the thirties. We didn’t have an abundance of food or money. We had to make do with what we had.

I remember it was the day before Thanksgiving and Daddy didn’t want the family to be disappointed because there was no turkey. My daddy was a big hunter, so he took his gun, walked two miles to the Coldwater bottom and killed a wild duck. For Thanksgiving dinner we had duck and dressing. It sure tasted good. I was thankful and couldn’t help but think of other poor kids who probably went hungry on that Thanksgiving Day. We were really blessed.
