This Norman Rockwell says it all. The American Family. We all have days when we think'we have it tough. Just think how lucky we really are. I want to Thank all our Service men today for letting us have this Thanksgiving at a family table with our own religion and freedom.
Wishing you all a wonderful THANKSGIVING
Our troops having their Thanksgiving. A far cry from Home. It just does not have the look of the table at home with family.
In Maine there are groups of Vet's and their family's and neighbor's that try to greet all the planes arriving at the Bangor Airport with our Military forces coming home.
May you all be with your loved ones on Thanksgiving Day.
Have a beautiful Turkey and a wonderful Holiday.

Yvonne won the prestigious 'Hortt Art Competition Award' at the Museum of Ft.Lauderdale, Florida. This work of art remained on display for several months at the Museum. Over the years Yvonne has entered many competitions winning countless blue ribbons. A trip to Paris, and a stay in Monmarte where she spent time with a few choice artist's changed her views toward her own art work. Art is truly an expression of experience and love to her. She likes her work to show a moment in time or tell a story. To know more about Yvonne Leyden
