Appalachia Holidays in Appalachia

Happy Thanksgiving from the Blind Pig and The Acorn

Thanksgiving in Appalachia
Gazzie and Charlie Jenkins (my grandparents-granny’s mother and father)

Like many of you, I’ll spend today eating good food and thinking of all the things I have to be thankful for.

Blind Pig Readers are at the top of my thankful list. I am truly grateful for each of you who stop by for a daily dose of Appalachia.

I wish you a day full of blessings. And Pap says to tell you not to bust your belly.

Happy Thanksgiving from the whole Blind Pig Gang!

    A big “shout out” from Wisconsin. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Wild turkey on the menu along with local Wisconsin cranberries and all the family favorites. Have a good one and enjoy the Packer game.

    Yesterday evening, I was so hungry that I just had to sample my Thanksgiving Dressing and Giblet Gravy. And we’ll be having our dinner this year at a cabin on Silver Mine. My oldest girl and her family are staying there for a Thanksgiving Treat, so I’m joining ’em.
    Hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving Dinner and Be Thankful for what God has given us…Ken

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Tell Pap that if tradition holds, I will probably ALMOST bust my belly! It is a beautiful, crisp, fall day here and a great do for being thankful. In addition to all the blessings in my life, I am thankful for the interesting and entertaining pieces of Appalachia that I get every day on Blind Pig and the Acorn. Thank you, Tipper!

    Yes, a Happy Thanksgiving to all. At the very top of my list of things to be thankful for is the Blind Pig Family, my family, to spend Thanksgiving day with eating turkey, dressing, and deer roast!
