  20. Hi Sandy, I think folks misunderstood on the marijuana. It IS illegal of course and it's being harvested by the criminals. I read a book once about a tobacco growing family in Connecticut. Seems like Troy Donahue played in the movie. You probably aren't old enough to remember that. lol
    Like your corn story. Hope you enjoy the holiday!

  21. I love this - very meaningful.Thank you for the timely reminder.

  22. I've never heard that before, but I like it. I just wish candy corn were a little more readily available up here -- how can I honour the origins of Thanksgiving without it? Sigh. ;) Hope you have a happy holiday and a wonderful Thanksgiving day with friends and family!!
