And I am Thankful for having such great stuff to read that brings with it such wonderful memories. Thanks for the ride! I am also thankful for the smell of woodsmoke in the air on a fall day, the wind in my hair, the sun on my face, the first big snowfall of the year, gooey,hot brownies with vanilla ice cream on top, and uncensored laughter from children.
