November is synonymous with Thanksgiving. It's when we turn our thoughts to getting together with family. When I was a young child we'd always go to my Mamaw and Papaw's farm for Thanksgiving. I remember going down the gravel road a few miles to pick out our live turkey from another farm. Then we moved north when I was 11 and we'd sometimes go to my grandmother and grandfather's house but more than likely my mother hosted Thanksgiving. Now that I think about it, I wonder why we didn't go to my mother's mother's on Thanksgiving like we did my father's mother. I can't ask my mother because she's been gone now 20 years just after Thanksgiving that year, but this year her death date falls on Thanksgiving. This is what I've been thinking about while looking at the view outside my kitchen window this month. . . . .

The Maryland Chapter of the Tasha Tudor Museum Society (TTMS) had their November Gathering today to make Tasha's gingerbread ornaments. The table was set for lunch. . . .

Wanting to take advantage of the last warm day of Autumn color we put the top down on the Roadster and headed for the Western Maryland mountains. I plotted out a route, checking "no highways"on Google Maps, and chose the southern route. We'd head west through Maryland on back roads, cross the West Virginia panhandle, and finally back into Maryland. . . .
