A few things that make Thanksgiving great

Over the last several years, this space has been used to document, record, reflect and remember great Thanksgivings.
It is truly my favorite time of the year, that sweet spot, however brief, that allows for a deep breath before the push and pressures of Christmas and the end of the year. That is not to slight December 25 or January 1 as wonderful, celebratory times of the year, it is simply to say that the timing and spacing makes Thanksgiving distinctive.

Nash County Animal Friends’ Notebook

At times I see a glimmer of hope.  There were empty kennels and cages at the Shelter.  I think to myself, maybe..... then my hopes get dashed when a lot of dogs or cats come in.  Too many of them go to the back, due to overcrowding or the fact that they are feral, like cats left to roam freely or pets too emotionally damaged by humans to be adoptable.  Then I get depressed again.  The stress of being a volunteer who tries to save them takes a toll.
