Happy Thanksgiving.

th (3)

Here it is Thanksgiving already, and we have a lot to be thankful for, family is safe, and healthy. We hope all our friends and relatives are sharing in this great holiday spirit

With the snow on the ground it is a pretty holiday, especially when you can watch it from inside a warm house.

The tense situation in Ferguson has calmed again last night, only two arrests, maybe the snow and bitter cold helped, it was in the low 20’s last night. Feel sorry for the Guardsmen and law enforcement forced to stand out side and patrol and guard the city of Ferguson. I can remember many winter nights when due to calls I was out in the snow and cold with no way to stay warm, one blizzard we had no relief and were forced into 12 hours on and then 12 hours off for a couple days, luckily the fire department had a couple empty bunks and a steaming hot shower.

Donna has to work this afternoon at 02:00PM so there will be no big meal here today, luckily I mad a homemade pizza last night and there is enough tovars for a meal tonight for me.What could be more Thanksgiving than beer & pizza. Since we are Italian instead of a ham or turkey on Christmas Donna always makes her world famous 4 inch think Lasagna.




Thanksgiving Day 1965, Scranton Tech vs Scranton Central, WE won(Tech) undefeated that season. I was on the field playing in the Band at half time when this was taken.


That’s about it for today, Everyone have a great holiday and be safe. Sam & Donna……
