ONE DAY TO GO AND THEN ON TUESDAY MORNING ...OFF TO (2009) ARIZONA!  KNOWING ME...I WILL BE EXTREMELY BUSY TOMORROW SO WILL NOT FIND THE TIME TO WRITE ANYTHING...UNTIL...MAYBE ON THE ROAD ,SOMEWHERE, WHERE THERE HAPPENS TO BE A COMPUTER FOR USE  IN A MOTEL.  MAYBE IT IS GOOD TO STAY AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER FOR A WHILE!  I PACKED  MUCH OF THE JEWELRY IN THIS LARGE TACKLE BOX THAT OPENS UP.( $2 AT A YARD SALE.)  JUST A FEW LITTLE STOPS TOMORROW....AND THEN....SUNSHINE!!  WILL GET THERE ON FRIDAY.  I WILL BE GIVING AWAY CALENDARS AND MAGNETS ON THE WAY AND TAKING LOTS OF PICTURES OF JUST ABOUT ANYTHING.  I AM REALLY PLEASED HOW SOME OF THESE PICTURES TURNED OUT AND PLAN ON TAKING MANY MORE. YOU MEET THE MOST INTERESTING PEOPLE ON THE ROAD.  I SUPPOSE SOMEWHERE DURING THE TRIP I WILL FIND OUT IF THE SENATE PASSED THE NEW HEALTH CARE BILL...OR MAYBE LATER.  THANKSGIVING IS COMING UP VERY SOON.  I REMEMBER ALL THOSE THANKSGIVINGS AND CHRISTMASSES THAT KAREN AND I SPENT TOGETHER WHEN WE WERE YOUNG.  WE ALTERNATED HOLIDAYS...AND THE TABLE NOW WOULD HAVE THOSE FINE DINNER PLATES AND SILVERWARE THAT WERE SAVED FOR ONLY THOSE SPECIAL OCCASIONS.  THE WHITE LINEN TABLE CLOTH ON THE DUNCAN FIFE TABLE....WITH WHITE LINEN NAPKINS... THAT NOW INCLUDED TWO EXTRA LEAVES.  SINCE KAREN AND I PLAYED THE PIANO...WE WOULD SIT AT ONE END...ON THE PIANO BENCH.  REALLY A NORMAN ROCKWELL SETTING, FOR THAT WAS THE WAY IT WAS DONE...BACK THEN.  ALL DRESSED UP WE WOULD FIND OUR PLACE AT THE TABLE AND ALWAYS...SAY GRACE.  THAT BEAUTIFUL TURKEY...JUST SITTING THERE.  MASHED POTATOES...GRAVY...STRING BEANS...SWEET POTATOES WITH MARSHMALLOWS ON TOP..BUTTER, YES LOTS OF BUTTER FOR THOSE FRESHLY, BAKED ROLLS!  AND...YOU WOULD HEAR..'PLEASE, PASS THE BUTTER'....AND 'THANKYOU.' I GUESS...WE HAD 'MANNERS'....ALWAYS BEING 'POLITE.' WE WERE TAUGHT AT A VERY EARLY AGE...AND IT HAS STAYED WITH US.  I REMEMBER, HEARING...'CLEAN UP YOUR PLATE...OR NO DESSERT!'  WE DIDN'T HAVE MANY CHOICES...BACK THEN.  WE ACTUALLY DIDN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT EATING ANYTHING...DIFFERENT.  THIS WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH...FOR US.  WE WERE JUST THANKFUL TO BE ALL TOGETHER ON THIS SPECIAL OCCASION AND GIVE THANKS FOR ALL OF THOSE BLESSINGS THAT WE HAD. OUR MOTHERS...RAISED ON A FARM WITH NO INDOOR PLUMBING..WORKING SO HARD IN THOSE FIELDS WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG..MAKING AND DELIVERING BUTTER..RAKING HAY..FEEDING CHICKENS..MILKING COWS...PLANTING CROPS, ETC.  NOW...THEY COULD PROUDLY SHOW OFF THEIR HOUSES...IN TOWN... WITH PLUMBING...ELECTRICITY...TELEPHONE...RADIO AND EVEN TV!  WE HAVE SO MANY GOOD MEMORIES OF THOSE TIMES.  ART WOULD GET OUT HIS NEW CAMERA FROM JAPAN AND WE WOULD ALL SMILE...AND SAY..'CHEESE.'  THAT PUMPKIN PIE WITH FRESH WHIPPED CREAM CONCLUED THE MEAL..WITH COFFEE.  EVERYONE SAYING..."I ATE TOO MUCH!'  WE CLEARED THOSE DISHES FROM THE TABLE...AND GETTING READY TO WASH...DRY...OR 'PUT AWAY'...I CAN'T REMEMBER ANY ARGUING ON WHO WAS TO DO WHAT...WE JUST DID IT!  OVER THE YEARS..ONLY ONE LEAF WAS NEEDED FOR THAT TABLE..AND THEN SOON...WE DIDN'T NEED ANY. IF YOU ARE FORTUNATE TO HAVE TWO LEAVES IN THE TABLE...THIS YEAR, BE THANKFUL THAT THERE WILL BE SO MANY THERE.  FOR BEFORE YOU EVEN KNOW IT....THOSE LEAVES...WON'T BE NEEDED!   CE
