Thanksgiving surprise

Tossing firewood

When I went on my usual morning walk on Thanksgiving, the world delivered a gift right in front of my bootsteps. My work gloves had been getting holey, but not so bad I was willing to buy a new pair. So imagine my surprise to find a nearly new set on the road, soggy from rain but otherwise intact. Score!

That said, if you hunt along our road (which, no, I'm not going to  name) and lost a small pair of blue gloves with tree patterns on the back a couple of weeks ago, please let me know. They're only lightly scuffed and still quite ready to wear.

Today is the feast of St. Nicholas, in the Eastern church. Maybe he left you a present ;)

Hi Anna and Mark,

Just gotta figure out which road to say I was walking along :).

First snow here in NH. Just discovered that my snow shovels still work !!

Love to you both, John
