Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Enjoy your family and your friends on this simplest yet most thoroughly American of holidays.

For Your Linky Pleasure: Warren, of Touch the Wind, took his camera to the glass art exhibition at the Desert Botanical Gardens in the Valley. Wild and wonderful stuff! And Prescott. with its heroic bronzes, is mentioned along with Real Cities like Naples and SF at this week's Carnival of the Cities. A reader (Lola by name) sent me an unexpected link: it seems the Pomona Public Library over in SoCal has a collection of nearly 50 digitized 30s postcards of Prescott on line; thanks, Lola. If you follow the link, the next step is to enter a search on "Prescott" in the upper right hand corner of the page.

Supreme post, GrannyJ! Love the 30s postcards of Prescott; a great find.

May you enjoy your turkey day, and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I'm grateful for you and your blog!

You've become a part of my day, especially at breakfast with coffee and cereal.

Just in case your eyesight is as bad as mine if you use the zoom tool that's at the bottom right of your screen you can view the Prescott postcards in a larger format.

AZ aka -- good info; I'll look for the tool the next time I'm there.
