Happy Thanksgiving! Break Time!

Happy Thanksgiving!  For your holiday approval, with contributions from the Depression Era to World War II Collection of the Library of Congress American Memory site:  my own personal "Thanksgiving Pilgrims Progress."

Get the food.  Don't you wish these 1940 prices were still around?

Eat the food.  Big crew!

Sleep it off.

Speaking of rest, due to all the craziness of the holidays, I'll be taking a brief break from the daily Shuffle posting for a week, but I'll be back; and there will still be a few posts next week. 

I hope you have a happy and safe start to your holiday season.
