  1. Gracias! Merci! Danke! Grazie! Efharisto! That's my lot

  2. I love this, Celia. Hoping you are having a great Thanksgiving.

  3. Thank you, Jenny,Caroline, and Paisley--yes, we had a good...but very quiet with the two of us...Thanksgiving. None of us travel during holidays, therefore we, and our daughter and her family, and our son and his family celebrate in our own way at home.
    And my husband and I had a very good relaxing day. Ballgame right now, The Godfather later. I've seen it so many times I have it memorized...but seems as though I will watch it again.


Thank you for visiting Sweethearts of the West!
