Best Thanksgiving Ever!

Our family has had many gatherings for Thanksgiving.  If I (mds) were a good creative writer, I would probably not give you the gist of this blog post in the title or the beginning, but that's me in looking back on our visit to Memphis for Thanksgiving. 

As I write this, I have just taken off all the photos taken by two cameras for over a month, and today is December 1, 2015.  You know what that means: The holiday rush has been kicked off in all its emphasis on commercialism.  Fortunately, it is pretty hard to celebrate Thanksgiving in a commercial way, but Macy's Thanksgiving Parade does a pretty good job of doing just that, and I still enjoyed watching parts of it as well as a Dog Show which took place in Philadelphia on TV on Thanksgiving Day.  BTW, our oldest daughter's TV gives us a feeling of being in a movie theater, but we are still happy with our smaller TV at home.

Prior to Thanksgiving Day we visited the Bass Pro Shop now located in The Pyramid of Memphis.  We first read a negative article about this place but then found one on the positive side, which we are sharing here with you: Article about Bass Pro Shop In Memphis Pyramid 
The real highlight of the trip was the Thanksgiving meal where several photos were taken by several people.  The Smith's gatherings for Thanksgiving have always been memories to remember with the food being delicious plus visiting with family. 
Here's some photos we'll share:
Now the rush is on that some retailers even began before Thanksgiving Day was over.
