The A2Z Meme (Blog Hop) that I've been participating in for the last couple of months has officially ended. Yep, we got to Z last Tuesday! I wish I could say I did every letter, but I didn't happen on the Hop until around  F, I think. Still, it was fun to have a set posting each week and a challenge to work out one that worked with the letter and was appropriate to my week and journey.

Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  3. We karaoke and rock band together.Every year I make my mom's special stuffing…made the old fashion way, with the real turkey soup made from the giblets and neck. We all get together and chop onions and celery. We end up crying over the onions. It's a great time.Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Marji!

  4. My family does not sing in tight harmony. Which is really really sad. However, we can laugh at ourselves which is a good thing, considering how bad we sing!

  6. Oh my gosh, Gwendolyn, That still makes me laugh until I hurt. The guys face was priceless. My sisnlaw said, "This isn't exactly normal." He sat down and smiled. Responded, "Oh you don't normally do things like this?" I think he was relieved, but I commented. "Oh no. We do things LIKE this all the time. THIS one is just new." He didn't stay very long! Ha!

  11. I miss the Thanksgivings we had when my grandparents were alive. But life changes and so do traditions. Now, we sometimes drive up to our Aunts house in Oklahoma. (No, I do not like singing that song!) And other times, like this year, we stay home and make tamales for Christmas gifts. It's fun.I like this idea, Marji and think I'll join in next week. Have a great holiday.
