Happy Thanksgiving!

We just want to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels if you are heading out for the holiday. We have more things to show you and tell you about like our trip to the Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge at sunset, watching huge flocks of migrating snow geese. We're new to this birdwatching stuff and don't have the lingo down yet, but it was amazing.

Happy Turkey Day!

We'll be celebrating Thanksgiving with our daughter and son-in-law and our traditional menu will consist of one big turkey with my homemade gravy, Bob's Mom's recipe for bread stuffing, mashed potatoes, candied yams (boiled, then sliced thin, spread with butter and brown sugar and baked till the butter melts and turns the tops cripsy and sweet), peas, cranberry sauce and rolls, followed by apple and pumpkin pies and a nap! It will be wonderful to be with family after living in Italy for two years. Thanksgiving was a bit strange for us and we found ourselves explaining this holiday to our Italian friends who had heard of it but didn't quite know what it was all about!

Here's an interesting website for our non-American friends http://www.scholastic.com/scholastic_thanksgiving/feast/

Hi Bob & Rosemary - Just wanted to say thank you for visiting my blog and your kind words. I've been reading about your adventures in Italy. Hardly scratched the surface of all those posts. You arrived in Italy about the same time we did. Lovely photos you posted but I have been trying to find some of Rosemary's watercolours. I was so looking forward to seeing them. Can you send me a link? ciao
