Thanksgiving With Marv And Inez and An Early Christmas Present

DeBary, FL.

60 deg. mist, N. wind @ 4 mph.
Forecast = Partly cloudy with a chance of rain. High of 79F. Breezy. Winds from the NE at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 20%.

Again, Marv and Inez, (Lindsey's parents), invited Jim and Linda to their house for Thanksgiving dinner with their family, so Thursday, Jim and Linda took CLT, (Cute Little Truck), and headed up to DeLand. They got there a little before noon and by about 1:00 they were enjoying another one of Inez's great meals. ;-)

Like she always does, she prepared a great meal of ham, turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and all of the other traditional Thanksgiving dishes to go with them. Then, of course, there were the pies that she baked plus the plate of brownies that Linda had taken over there.

Again, Jim and Linda want to thank Marv and Inez for including them in their family's Thanksgiving holiday. They always have a house full of family, but always make room for them.

Thank You!!!!!

While Jim and Linda were at Marv and Inez's, they were looking through all the sale adds that came in the paper. Jim noticed that Home Depot had Christmas Trees on sale and mentioned that he needed to buy a tree because all they had was the little 2' tree that they had been using in the RVs. Well,  ,  ,  ,  ,  Friday morning, just before 6:00 AM, there was a knock on our front door and when Jim opened it, there was Lindsey with a tree!!!!

He had gotten up and had gone to Home Depot at 5:00 AM and bought a tree for Jim and Linda!!!! He intended to get one of the featured trees in the add, but others had the same idea and by the time he got there they were all sold. So, he bought another tree that was also on sale. Jim offered to pay for the tree, but Lindsey wouldn't take anything for it, so I guess this is an early Christmas present. ;-)

Are these "kids" great or what??????

You know, even though Linda has been having health problems, we really do have a lot to be thankful for. Great family, great friends, plenty of food and a good roof over our heads.

What more could you ask for????

Did you know that the first artificial Christmas trees were developed in Germany during the 19th century? These "trees" were made using goose feathers that were dyed green.
