Day 1061: The day after Thanksgiving

Dear Readers,

I took lots of pictures yesterday, during U.S. Thanksgiving, 2015.

Am I thankful for each and every one of them?


If you want more words about any of those photos, I’d be thankful for that, too.

Still giving thanks on the day after Thanksgiving,

  1. Great photos Ann and you showed up in my Reader for first time through a year I think. I use to find you in the comments at other blogs. Worth celebrating πŸ™‚

  2. Enjoy the weekend

  3. I like “Rufferee”. That is cute.

  4. On Wednesday I made a list of things I’m thankful for. It was quite long! Changed my mood from poor to wonderful.Just like your blogs can do for me.

  5. Cat facing backwards?

  6. Loving that Zenith radio…flashback. Flash way back. ☺

    • I love that too, Van. It lives in the home of my ex-father-in-law, where we spent part of Thanksgiving. As always, I am thankful to see you!

  7. What a cozy day it looked like- and what an assortment of pies! πŸ˜€

  8. I’m thankful to be here and to see all these pictures, especially the blue ball next to the lamppost. At first it looked like a globe and there seemed to be something wonderfully poetic about that whole little scene. It’s as though the lamppost is expressing gratitude for a world to receive its light.
    That makes me think of how we often express thankfulness for the gifts we receive but we should also be thankful we have people in our lives to give gifts to.
    Wallace Stevens put it more eloquently:
    “Ariel was glad he had written his poems.
    They were of a remembered time
    Or of something seen that he liked.”

    • As usual, Chris, you are observant and poetic. That ball did have a globe on it and that’s what attracted my interest. As always, I am very thankful you’re here, with all that you bring.

  9. I’m happy to see all your lovely photos (pups and kitties, yay!) and hope you had (and will continue to have) a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  10. I like the photo of Aaron.
    Can you explain what Black Friday is? Stores in Canada have begun offering Black Friday sales, which I have heard is an American tradition on the day after Thanksgiving. However, our Thanksgiving was in October but today is still black Friday. I’m wondering if there is a particular event linked to having sales today? Something to do with pilgrims? (Our Thanksgiving isnt pilgrim-related, though there does seem to be pumpkin pie).And, is Thanksgiving in the States always on a Thursday? I think that in Canada we get a Monday off.

    I hope you don’t mind answering questions. I bought my son a coat earlier this week and they told me to check today to see if it has gone on sale for Black Friday.I checked and it has and now I will go back to the store for a partial refund. Is this the beginning of a new tradition?mi d of like hunting turkey but with sales?

    I hope that you enjoy your long weekend perhaps fitti g in abitof reading or a trip to the pet shelter or breakfast out with friends. I look forward to the photos!

    • Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the U.S., where lots of stores have huge sales. I don’t know why it’s called Black Friday. Maybe it’s because there are so many people crowding the stores that some people black out. I wouldn’t know for sure, because I have always avoided shopping on Black Friday since the advent of Black Friday, whenever that was.

      Here’s a question for you: why didn’t you notice that there were two photos of Aaron?

      I will take you and your beautiful curiosity along with me today, wherever I go. I hope you like my pictures tomorrow.

  11. Thank you for the scoop on Black Friday. I don’t anticipate crowds here but if there are I will try not to black out.

    To answer your question about Aaron’s photo,the reason I did not notice that there were two photos is that I was reading the post on my small cellphone this morning. The photos tiled in such a way that each was miniscule. I could see Aaron in only one photo and many photos were mysterious to me. But at least my phone was able to load the page promptly. Anyway. I was very happy with seeing Aaron.

    And now I am on my computer and can see the other photo of Aaron. Plus, an unfamiliar black cat. πŸ™‚

    Nice collage! Very festive πŸ™‚

  14. Looks like the fairies have been visiting your camera.

  15. Amen, Ann! It looks like those pies served you well.

  16. Some bloody great photos indeed

  17. The day after Thanksgiving is a great one for me because you are happy, and that can be felt all the way over here.

  18. Oh my gosh, Patriots fan stuff AND Star Trek fan stuff, in one place! Woo!! πŸ˜€

    I’m thankful you had such a nice Thanksgiving. πŸ˜€ Great pictures!

  19. Thanks, Ann

  20. From the day after the day after Thanksgiving I am grateful not to have missed this day’s post!
