. . . and the happiest of Thanksgivings

November 22, 2012

Notwithstanding the death of my Krups coffeemaker this morning (it no longer cares to cycle hot water through its system), it’s a beautiful day.  The morning is clear and sunny, two of the three baddogs are sprawled at my feet while I type this — more about the third baddog in a moment, nnd I will enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with “Jean from NM” and her family.  I am looking forward to four days to catch up on the Bulletin and on my two chores for the 2013 National Specialty.  Black Friday — hmm — Tractor Supply Company is the only store in my sights.

I wish for all my friends the very best day, and for humankind I wish contentment, a meal that is sustaining, and a view of our world that is peaceful.

Nola went home with Jess yesterday.  She will be traveling to what I hope is her last conformation show in Belleville IL the first weekend of December.

    Oooh, good luck for the Nolaster! Happy Thanksgiving, Penni and Jean from NM! I’m getting ready to fix lunch with mock mashed potatoes made from cauliflower and getting ready to watch the National Dog Show before heading out to a movie. And somewhere in there I need to work Baby Dinah on her stays!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your brood, Penni. One thing I’m thankful for is being part of your blog. I love watching your baddogs grow up!

    The green gorp was WONDERFUL! And do ask Penni about the pecan soup. :o)
