Men are like wine
– some turn to vinegar,
but the best improve with age.

How ironic that on the American Thanksgiving Day we also have Unthanksgiving Day and International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Is it so hard to be thankful without causing others to be unthankful?

Every day we should be working to eliminate violence against women.

So, I wish my American friends and neighbours a happy Thanksgiving. ❤

With a few flowers in my garden,
half a dozen pictures and some books,
I live without envy.

*I finished buying my outfit for my son’s wedding. I bought shoes at Ovation Shoes Premium Outlet in Strathroy ON. Buying local really makes a difference. Although the salesperson didn’t have any 6 DD dress shoes, she was able to find the perfect shoes for me, put a liner in them and they fit wonderfully. So I also asked her about boots, and she found the perfect little red boots for me. In and out in less than 1/2 hour.
