Happy Thanksgiving!

Woodpecker Ridge . Troutville

Good morning! I'm up bright and early getting the turkey ready to pop in the oven! In just a few minutes I need to get the boys up and fed and drop them off at school...they have football practice this morning, just a couple of hours...they won the playoffs last week so no rest for the wicked ;) Ashlyn will pick them up on her way over to help me cook...then Christian and Madeline will stop over in between their other Thanksgiving visits to Madeline's family...Ashlyn's boyfriend will also stop over in between his running around...I remember those busy holidays of having to visit family on both sides! And for all this, I am thankful today! I am also thankful for you, my blogging buddies...I wish you all a super holiday, and for my non American buddies, have a great day!! Take care!

Stoney Battery Road . Troutville

This train trestle is HUGE! It's quite impressive as it pops into view and you drive under it!

That's my 5 this week friends! Hope to see you join in! Post 5 randoms, link back and visit others as time allows! Thanks for visiting and thanks for joining! Have a great weekend!

Running out the door...Friday's are early breakfast at school for the boys to eat with their team...playoff game #2 tonight against Magna Vista...this team kicked them out of States a couple of years back so should be a good game! Won last week's playoff 51-7!

Downtown Roanoke

Looking at the backside of the Roanoke Warehouse Historic District, also known as "Wholesale Row".

Today I am thankful for early morning texts from my daughter Ashlyn! Her boyfriend's best friend found one of the rocks I had hidden for our Facebook group Botetourt Rocks so she texted to let me know he found my rock's a small world! Also thankful for sunshine! It's going to be a beautiful fall day with lots of sun and blue skies!
