Manatee in Florida

My winter friend

Great Blue Heron

For the last few years, my friend here, the Great Blue Heron has been visiting on a nearby tree.
We've been calling him Abraham for awhile. 
The name just seems to fit his personality: strong, regal, ancient , almost biblical.
He stands here in the cold, waiting perfectly still, until he is ready to dive into the water with the faith that below a fish will be provided for his dinner.

Thanksgiving Wishes

Happy Thanksgiving
Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving...

When did Thanksgiving first become the start of the shopping event of the year?
It was always the holiday to share with family and friends, to give thanks for all we have, and enjoy just being together.
Thanksgiving was the day to share family time, eat some traditional foods, relax together and catch up on conversation. That's how memories are made.
It makes me sad to see that businesses are open, that people are preparing to shop at mid-night, that the stores are forgetting their employees have lives.
Sad, just sad.
