Happy Thanksgiving

Wherever you are today and whoever you are sharing the holiday with, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you take a few moments to consider all we have to be thankful for. Don’t just give it a passing thought, think about it. With all of our problems, we live in the greatest country in the world, we’re able to enjoy a standard of living most of the rest of the world can only dream of, and if we don’t like the neighbors we can just turn the key and move, taking our house with us!

Thanks for all the get well wishes, everybody. Except for persistent coughs, I think Terry and I are pretty well over our colds. But the last week or ten days really sucked. I’m glad that’s over.

The rain finally stopped and we had blue skies yesterday, but it was a chilly day. I spent the day writing more stories for the next issue of the paper, while Terry was busy proofreading, making a couple of her delicious deep dish pizzas for dinner, and starting on today’s dinner. Although I don’t know how she could top that pizza! Then again, I know she will.

Some people who aren’t fulltimers seem surprised that Terry can cook such great meals, or that we live in our motorhome just as comfortably as we could in a house, but really, there isn’t any big difference. We just have a little less space to walk around in, and no grass to mow or snow to shovel. I’ll happily take less square feet of floor space in exchange for not having to mess with all of that any day.

  1. Thanks so much for featuring us on your blog! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Terry. I know you will have a fun (filled) day with her cooking.

    Once again you make me think about what I have to be thankful for. And when you stop and really give it thought there is so much to be thankful for. Life is good on the road that I am taking and I am blessed with what I have. Can’t be anymore thankful than that!

    Have a great day you two. 🙂

  3. Happy Thanksgiving Nick and Terry….

    I am most thankful for still being alive after having a stroke 2 years ago. My husband and I enjoyed 4 years of fulltiming and attended two rallies where you were involved. We can’t stress enough to people to NOT put off enjoying life and get out there to see our great country. We are still hoping to get to Alaska !!

  4. We also give thanks for the little things–being able to brush our teeth and comb our hair (thanks for having hair to comb also); being able to button buttons and dress ourselves, and the list goes on.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving Nick and Terry! Enjoy your day of just being together and a year of good health……minus the colds!

  6. Glad you are both feeling some better and surely Terry’s great food today will help you feel even better!! Have a great Thanksgiving

  7. Happy Thanksgiving Nick and Ms Terry, hope y’all have a great Holiday Season!!

  8. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Ms Terry! As for us, we’re blessed!
