Back From New Jersey

Hi.  I just wanted to let everyone know I'm back from doing disaster relief with the Red Cross in New Jersey.  Glad to be home, I can't do those 14 hours work shifts like I used to.  Getting soft in my old age.

Things are still pretty bad out there so as you prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving this week (for my friends in the US), please offer a prayer for all those affected by the storm and all those who are foregoing their holiday with their families to help others in need.

As you may remember, just before I left I said I was taking a couple weeks off blogging because I was falling behind schedule on too many things.  You can guess what that schedule looks like now.  So I'm going to be off line for a couple more weeks until I dig out from under.  Hope everything is well with all of you and I look forward to visiting you all again soon. 


And with that, I offer you my two favorite Thanksgiving Day cartoons. 





Happy Thanksgiving.

How interesting that you posted today. I have been thinking about you all day. Really. I was wondering how things were going with you with the disaster relief work. So thanks for dropping a note. You have been missed. :)

Alex - Thanks. You, too.

LD Masterson said...

Kay - Nothing like spending time with people who have lost so much to make me appreciate what we have. Thanks.

LD Masterson said...

Amy - Glad I gave you a laugh. And a very Happy Thanksgiving to you, too.

Linda - Hey, thanks for thinking of me. So nice to know I've been missed. I'm looking forwrd to getting a little caught up so I can dive into the blogging round agains. I've missed everyone.

Maria Zannini said...

Yeah, I missed you. You probably figured that out by my atrocious attempts at texting.

Welcome back.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - Not to worry, my friend. I'm going to teach you how to text when I see you.

Good to see you again - and the cartoons. Some interest over here over Governor Christie.

You do such a wonderful thing traveling so far to help. I only go about 20 miles to a shelter north of me when we are called by the Red Cross to open.

Glad you made it there and back okay, and hope you have a wonderful Holiday.

A long overdue hello from me. :)
