Sixteen and Twenty-one

1621 - the date given to the first Thanksgiving - 3 days of celebration after the first harvest in the New World.

It was not until 1863 that President Lincoln proclaimed it an official  holiday in the U.S.

I have never been great at remembering dates, so I depend on things like Wikipedia to help me out with such things, for this I am thankful.

I am thankful for so many things in my life and will not list them all as it would go on and on...

So, the short and sweet is I am thankful for all my friends and family - near and all too far away!

Happy Thanksgiving, safe travels and a gentle day together.
