Re: [aloha-donblanding] Happy Thanksgiving!
>Thank you Cadia for your greetings on your Thanksgiving day. Although wedo not have such a day Down Under, I am aware of its significance in
American history. I believe that it goes back to the Pilgrim days and that
it was Nov 26 originally, but somewhere along the years it was made the
last Thursday of November. The date is not significant, but the act of
giving thanks is indeed a significant thing - and we all have something,
many things in fact, to be thankful for - a kind of Talisman Day as DB
Although I have not been posting, I have been keeping up with reading all
the posts to the web site, and congratulations on all your sleuthing and
salvaging of things Blanding. I am building up my collection of DB books
and tj is going to help get a few more together for me, to save on postage
costs - yes, we have a lot to be thankful for, one being able to get to
know DB's inspirational prose, and some of his friendly followers who have
travelled in his footsteps down the years to today,
Kind regards from Australia,
