I hope all had a great Thanksgiving. We had a nice time in Nashua with the family. In keeping with tradition, Emily brought cannoli from the North End in Boston. We usually queue that up with a viewing of the Godfather but this year opted for the second film of the The Dark Knight Trilogy. I think seeing Heath Ledger’s Glasgow smile might give me nightmares, he played a great Joker.
Be safe on Black Friday, order from my Amazon Links, it can be dangerous out there.
I have so much to be thankful for and friends and family are on the top of the list. If you read my blogs on a regular basis you see that many of their photos will appear in the postings. I’m thankful that folks actually spend some time looking at these blogs especially those who use the Amazon Links.
I am thankful that the election is over, I think we are all thankful the election is over. Make an effort not to discuss it over dinner.
I especially grateful that I get the opportunity to play music with folks on a regular basis. That gives me great joy.
I went back deep in the photo archives to find a few “turkeys” to share. Enjoy.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I’ve already shared the details of our celebration and was scouring the Facebook to see how other family members spent the day. Since I can only share public posts, this is what I found.
I realize that the photos I embedded into this post were not visible to many of my readers. I’ve changed the way photos can be accessed for this posting. Clicking the photo below should open the Thanksgiving photos in new window. If not please let me know.
These are hosted on Google Photos and each photo now contains a great more detail. Clicking on the “i” button in the upper right corner will reveal a description, time, date, location (if available), camera make, focal length, shutter speed and ISO setting. Clicking on the magnifying glass will zoom into the photo which is useful to browse through group photos.
Give it a try.

I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that after about 5 years one of my computer hard drive has bit the dust. This drive has upwards of 63,751 photo files (with a few duplicates). Hard drive failure was always a possibility, ALL HARD DRIVES WILL FAIL including whatever you are using as you read this.
The good news is that because of your continued support of this blog (by using my Amazon.com link), I have a few dollars for a new drive.
More good news is that I am running a RAID disk configuration which means there are duplicate drives holding one set of data. One drive down, one working and now one on order ($99 NewEgg). If the second drive fails BEFORE the new one arrives, it will be catastrophic.
As part of the Thanksgiving countdown, I’m sharing a large number of photos that were sent by Cathy Janis, who is somewhere on the road with her husband.
Click on the photo below which will open a Google Photo Album which contains the entire group of photos. I believe most of these were taken at Bill and Cynthia’s home in Holliston, MA. But if not, please leave a comment.
I’ve been counting down the days to Thanksgiving with a look at the past.In 2009 we moved our venue to New Boston, NH. I believe we did this because Stephanie had such a bad allergic reaction to our cats in New Ipswich. Sadly I don’t have a photo of the family gathered around the dining room table suggesting Norman Rockwell Freedom from Want.
