RE: Happy Thanksgiving
Hope everyone here has a Happy Thanksgiving! Betty, I never realized Pilgrims had such big heads. Big Grin

Here is Lincoln's proclamation.

Best
Rob

By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unites States the Eighty-eighth.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln

William H. Seward,
Secretary of State

Abraham Lincoln in the only man, dead or alive, with whom I could have spent five years without one hour of boredom.

RE: Happy Thanksgiving
I hope that all the Forum members and their families had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I just finished working a month straight with no days off. Finally, i had off on Thanksgiving day and Friday. We had a great holiday! And for the first time ever- Donna and I got all of our Christmas shopping done in one day- on black Friday- online! We never left the house!

RE: Happy Thanksgiving
I wish the happiest of Thanksgivings to all! As I write this they are forecasting a storm for the East on Wednesday/Thursday - hope it is not too bad, especially if you are traveling for the holiday.

RE: Happy Thanksgiving
I think I can speak for many in the greater Washington Metropolitan area that today was a spectacular day with a record high in the low 70s. However, Wednesday we are expecting rain/snow mix. I live on the northwest side and they are predicting 3" to 6" depending on the path the storm takes. Regardless, I believe we all have things to be thankful for, and wishing all a very Happy Thanksgiving from the entire Garrett clan.

Betty, we are all expecting some pretty interesting imagery from you!

Don't eat to much turkey this Thanksgiving. Don't let this happen to you.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving also. However, I am putting a curse on Betty and Jonathan because they wished for that stupid white stuff!

If I lived in the Buffalo area, you would find a For Sale sign on my front lawn once (and if) the snow melts.
