At the senior center today, we were very busy getting the tables, etc ready for the dinner . A man that used to volunteer in earlier years, came and made center pieces for the tables. Turkeys made from apples. Quite clever!! Also a turkey out of pineapple and various other veggies for the large center piece. With yummies to eat on the larger one. Thought they were quite good, and wanted to share. Antique Rose

I thought today I would make a list. Not a bucket list, a thankful list.
1. My husband, who is also my best friend.
2. My family
3. My friends
4. My home
6. Good books to read
7. Walks which are good for my soul and mental health!
8. Being able to look for my treasures at my favorite thrifts, fleas, etc
9. Being happy with what I have!!!
I hope I have not forgotten anything that I consider important, but I think not. I hope that all my blogging friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. M-mmmmm I can smell those apple pies baking,and the turkey roasting!! Can't wait, can you? Antique Rose

I went to the local flea today, not expecting to find anything special, but was surprised to find three plates, a pitcher, and also an old book for a garden club written in 1941!! Really cute, and illustrations were in Harper Magazine too. Since I now belong to a garden club, thought it would be a neat thing to show and tell. I have several older books on gardening, so it was a great find for that collection. Oh, yes and I found an army messenger bag that I think my granddaughter will like. It was a nice day, except the wind was really blowing. Sorry the pictures are not up to par, used old camera, haven't emptied the new one yet that has vacation pictures. Usually don't get that glare.
Well, back to chores. Antique Rose

I think that I am almost back to normal. Nice to be back home. I still have not walked as much as before vacation, but have been very busy!! Over last weekend we went to daughter's for a dinner and Music Concert. Two of our granddaughters were in it. Love to hear all those strings. It was really nice. Daughter had a nice barbecued rib dinner for us afterward. Love those ribs!!!! Had a nice visit. Next one is in Dec, and other granddaughter will be in this one. I do like to see them preform. On Tuesday(yesterday), I had my antique club meeting. It turned out very wells. Our guest speaker, spoke on Julienne Jewelry. Very interesting and pretty. The speaker also has a shop(antique) in a nearby town. Plan a trip there to check out the rest of their wares!!! Our hostesses put on a nice spread of sandwiches and salads, and dessert of course. It was nice to see everyone and visit. Had our sign up sheet for our Christmas luncheon in December. Yum, it is so good every year. Looking forward to that and a Christmas Tea the weekend before that. I can hardly believe it is this time of the year already!! I am sure I won't be really, well maybe. Gotta put in some long days to do so. Other great news, I got my bridges to fit over my implants. Yea, they look nice(and that they should!!), cost an arm and leg, just hope I get to use them for many years, before I pass this life!! ha Antique Rose

I missed out on Halloween, but since we don't have many little trick or treaters, guess that doesn't matter! We had a nice trip across the country. We got to see our great granddaughters, which was nice, but since they didn't know us, due to being so far away, it was a a bit hard to get to know them. They were busy hiding behind Mommy!! It was good to see them anyway, then it was off to see our grandson that is in Army, and stationed at Ft. Bragg. We did have a nice visit there!! Next stop for grandson's was Florida. We had a good visit, or should say I did, hubby was sick!! A real bummer, since he didn't want to give whatever he had, he was at hotel more than he was visiting. I would have loved to stay longer, but since "sickie" didn't feel like it, we started back home! The various states were quite nice, we went through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Missouri, Georgia, and Florida. After staying at so many different places, I might have forgotten one, living out of suitcase is not my cup of tea. Having done it once, I think I will fly next time, and stay longer at one place. We saw lots of beautiful scenery in most of the states, had no mishaps over all most 8,000 miles, so I think our guardian angel was at work!! We did see a few things in between visits and the various states. Saw Graceland, The Grand Ole Osprey, Laura Ingalls Wilder's home place, which was really neat, and a Cherokee Village. I was interested in the Indian village as I have a bit of Cherokee blood. All were very interesting. Of course I had a few peeks in some shops, found a few birds to add to my collection. :-) Like Dorothy said, "there's no place like home", I am glad to be back. After I catch up, I will post some pictures. Antique Rose
PS-Forgot, went to Branson too, that was fun!!
