A Special Thankgiving With Friends

It was a wonderful Thanksgiving this year and so special. We got to be with close friends that are family to me. Online is a world that opened up to me in 1997 when I got my first computer. There are many stories how we all have met our friends that we cherish, and when we meet friends we have gotten to know online it is such a special time. With blogs like this one we can get a feeling of how a person thinks, where there passion is about our country, our military, their stand on many things.

This last Thanksgiving some of us that have already met in the last few years were able to see each other again. Linda of Something.... and Half of Something, Beth of MVRWC, Vinnie or Vince aut Morire ( he has taken a break in blogging ) , and Merri of Merri's Musings. And their children as well which made it even more special and fun.

Laughter, wonderful conversation, more laughter and delicious food. Merri is an awesome cook, she did a special treat for all of us and fixed the Thanksgiving meal. Yummy. Merri is Vinnie's wife and her blog has two of her many interests. One is the protection of children and her love of cooking.

And ALL agreed that Merri is a better cook then Rachel Ray.

I wanted to share about our Thanksgiving with all of you, my dear friends and family here at Theodore's World because you all mean so much to me just as those that got to come here for the holiday do in my life. My friends are my family and the times we share on here, online, in person mean so much to me.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well.

Very nice posting, Chrissie. I feel exactly the same way. I feel that I know Nick and you (some how). As well as TomR, Darth, Lynn, Mark and others.

We had warm times and fuzzys with family, friends and next door neighbors. I did a lot of online/ blog stuff with e@friends because of my injuries 1.5 weeks ago. I broke my right foot, left knee fractures and two breaks in right shoulder. Gads, what a week. Some Marine friends brought me a wheelchair, as long as they could RAZ me and make fun of my "left arm, right butt low crawl".

Well, anyhow, I wish you and everyone who reads this blog Merry Christmas, Happy High Holy Days and lots of good Turkey leftovers.

As for the Mooselimb "monitors" and readers, I have lots of left over ham for you. Please come and get it.

WT - sounds like your Thanksgiving was a meeting of the minds, a world summit in it's own right. Glad you had a good time. To me, Thanksgiving is the wonderful calm before that great storm of Christmas frenzy. Christmas should also be a time of peace, but sadly we have commercialized it too much.

Thank you again for having us! Love and miss everyone.

Except the cat.

Great post Chrissie, thank you so much for sharing, we too had a great day with family, with enough leftovers to feed us for another month, we have a large freezer so we can spread it out. Just counting our blessings and good fortune.

Sorry SSgt Steve, I tangled with my chainsaw just over a month ago, it's all healed now with a nice scar and a $900 ER bill. I know the humility of being laid up, your injuries sound serious, lots of razzing from friends, they mean well. I still get razzed about my 1985 'flight' by the bastids that were there to witness it and pick me up, I only suffered a torn rotator cuff, you suffered broken bones. Get well soon and Semper Fi!!!

Excellant thread Chrissie, great Thanksgiving too.
A time when the in-laws and every Tom, Dick and Harry shows up for a free meal that you haven't seen in a year or so and won't see again for another year. But hey, it's family....Right ?
That's what the wife keeps telling me.

Sorry to hear about all the broken bones, SSgt. Steve, take it easy. And Chain saws, hell I stay away from anything that big I have enough problem with smaller saws and my 1 and 1/2 thumbs, but like the wife says that everything I make is stained Mahogany, blood red.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

And Next month it will be Merry Christmas, and to hell with the suckers who don't like it. Or as we used to say 'bloop-em'

Oh and Darth, I went to one of your sites, and it was talking about the Real Christmas Story and it said, ' Mary, Joeseph, Elizabeth and the Shepards'. Who's Elizabeth ?????

SSgt Steve, I agree so much.

I hope you heal fast, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Tom, giggle yes your right it was like a summit, a meeting of the minds. heh heh

And now like you say for the busy season to begin. I love the decorations, the lights, the music and the smell of goodies baking.

Vinnie, hahaha our cat showed her face about an hour after everyone left. If she only knew how everyone here loved kitties. But she has a mind of her own. hahaa

Jack I am so glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 25, 2007 12:47 AM

Mark, LOL I know what you mean about the inlaws.
And I agree what you said about Christmas too.

Darth and Mark, I was wondering too, who is Elizabeth? Thanks agian for the link.

Weeeeee! We had fun!

LUKE 1:5 ... In the name of Herod, King of Judea, there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah; his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron....

This 'The Birth of Christ' masterpiece is word for word out of Luke and Matthew, and took over ten years to write, script and produce. Handel's Messiah is a masterpiece and let's see where this goes... and it's a positive when Roman Catholics are starting to read the Holy Bible after 2,000 years!!!
