Thankful for Blogging Friends

Mildred, John and Harriet on the porch of their home. October 25, 2010.

Betsy and I were fortunate to be able to enjoy an early Thanksgiving this past Monday.  We had planned to meet blog friend Mildred and her husband, John, at their home in northern Georgia.  What we didn’t know was that Mildred had a wonderful Thanksgiving lunch planned for us.  The lunch was delicious and was topped off with a new treat for me — pumpkin ice cream on pumpkin coffee cake.

One reason we went down to visit them was that John has been having some health problems and we have been thinking and praying for the two of them.

The picture above shows Mildred and John with Harriet, the third member of their family.

This scarecrow welcomed us to Mildred and John's home.

Mildred is very creative and talented (in addition to being a great cook) and had this welcome set up for us on their screened-in porch.

Betsy and Harriet. October 25, 2010.

We had a wonderful visit with Mildred and John.  And, as you can see, Betsy found a new best friend while we were there.

Both Betsy and I are very thankful for blogger friends.

    Good Morning George, John and I enjoyed your and Betsy’s visit so very much. We could have talked all night!

    I should share with your blog friends that in order to get Harriet to look at the camera, we taught you to say “cookie!” and that it worked for John and me as well! ha

    Thank you so much for making the long drive to give us one of the most memorable Thanksgiving’s we’ve ever had.

    It is good to hear that you had a wonderful visit.
    Betsy looks like she ‘needs’ a puppy.

    I’ve never had pumpkin ice cream, although the dessert was offered to us last weekend. We were too full and passed up the offer. I like that sign welcoming the two of you, personally, to your friends’ home. I’m glad that you had a good visit with your friends. The picture of your friends and Harriet is good. I like how attentive Harriet is. Betsy sure looks like she is enjoying Harriet. Maybe she does need a puppy, as stated by Ruth.

    Harriet looks so happy to have the company, too! What a great Thanksgiving lunch. I think we have so much to be thankful for that we cannot rely on just one day. Super that you all could break bread together.
