May you have a blessed holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

I’ve always loved Currier and Ives scenes. This is from an 1867 lithograph titled Home to Thanksgiving. Source.

I’m a Michigan gal and one of my favorite places to visit is Frankenmuth, especially Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland, a store the size of 6 football fields filled with decorations. It’s open 361 days a year and is a family business that was opened in the 1940s.
I haven’t been there for a few years, but I’m feeling nostalgic and may just hop in the car one weekend soon and make the trek. This is an interview with the CEO. I hope you enjoy the peek into this wonderful store.
Much appreciation and thanks to all the veterans who’ve served. Bless you and yours.
I found this fascinating photo from 1918 of 18,000 men posing as the Statue of Liberty. These men were training for WWI at Camp Dodge. Source: By Arthur S. Mole and John D. Thomas, 915 Medinah Bldg., Chicago, Illinois. [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons.
I love vintage Coca-Cola advertisements. I actually love Coke too but don’t drink it like I used to due to health. Here’s a lovely lady from the 1890s offering up a refreshing drink.
