I hope your Thanksgiving Day is going well (or, if you’re outside the US, your regular old Thursday). First, a picture that needs no caption at all.

You all excelled yourselves this year, with lots of entries, particularly from Karen who … well, Karen (and her husband) had time on her hands. She sent in a record breaking number of entries and I’ll post more another time. But she is my first winner with this little gem (how did I judge, may you ask? I drank tea. Any entry that cleaned my sinuses and endangered the keyboard was a finalist):

She also displayed remarkable ingenuity and imagination with these other entries:

The other winner is Kelly, of the Jane Austen Sequel Examiner, on a subject dear to my heart:
And many honorable mentions to Alison, our own Diane, Amy Katherine …

Louise, Teresa, and Maggie…

Kwana, Kathleen, and Tracey…

and Tracenga!

Thanks for playing, everyone! I hope your day is full of reasons to give thanks.

Winners, email your snailmail addresses to me at riskies AT yahoo.com.
