THANKSGIVING  2012.........  My Thanksgiving Cactus is blooming, and what can that mean?..........

 Well, since the Feast of St. Gregory, the Wonder Worker is past, that can't be it............

 Of course, since that is Sisi's Birthday, she thinks November 17th was grand.....

 But my cactus is actually heralding that Today--November 26th, is Thanksgiving Day--a time to give thanks for all we have been given.  This year, I feel blessed to have my health, my family......

ALL LORETTO REUNION 2012  In honor of the accomplishments of the Sisters of Loretto in Santa Fe, alumni of Loretto Academy have arranged a Reunion for ALL girls who ever attended Loretto Academy..........

ELECTION IN SANTA FE 2012  As one of the most important elections of all time approaches, folks across our country are preparing to vote and anxiously await the outcome.....

 Including right here in my hometown of Santa Fe, New Mexico!  On Election Day itself, I am serving as part of the election poll workers crew for Precinct 10--a long day: 6:00am to 8:00pm.....

 Afterwards, we meet up with like-minded friends to watch the returns, eat good steaks, and enjoy the camaraderie.............

 Oh, and enjoy some sorely "needed" libation!  "HERE'S TO THE BLUE STATES!"..........

 At last the winner is announced and I take the first truly deep breath since the first debate!  Hooray for our President!

 "Take that you dirty dealing, tax avoiding, elitist 1 percenters!!!"
