Taiko Drums

ABC News 4 came to school to interview the 
class and played video on air of Deb and other 
members in class playing their drums.

Deb loves her Taiko Drums class.  I went to one of her classes when I was in SC for Halloween.  LOUD...LOUD...LOUD!  My ears are still ringing!  She loves to beat her drum!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!  This has been a trying year for everyone, the economy crunch has been difficult.  All in all, we still have a lot to be thankful for, good health especially.  Mom and Dad are holding their own, both turned 91 years of age this year.

We are definitely thankful for a loving family;  the Deb & Steve Glazier's in SC, the John & Katie Corsaut's in MD, Robert and I in CA, and my brothers and their families in CA and IL.

On Thanksgiving Eve, my son Robert was sick...just a minor sore throat and cold.  By the next day he wasn't up to a family celebration so we stayed home and I made some homemade chicken vegetable soup.  It was warm and yummy and comforting.  We're so sorry we couldn't share the day with family, but Robert needed to get a lot of rest to get better.  So on Friday I roasted a small turkey for the two of us and we celebrated together.  Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, corn bread muffins, whole cranberry sauce and fruit cocktail salad!  It was delicious! 

I hope everyone had a great day.  We're thankful for the upcoming new year and new beginnings.  We pray for health and prosperity and well-being.  God bless us all.
