The last time I had surplus coats, I gave them to the Salvation Army along with the donations to their Thanksgiving Dinner food drive, with hopes that they actually went to those who needed them.

What are you doing?

Yes, I think Salvation Army doesn't make a profit for sales.

My qualm with SA is that they are not gay-friendly, and oppose same-sex marriage.

Oh well, these coats are really nice, and they're taking up a lot of space on my dining room table!

The SA is the only charity I will donate to. I too heard about their stance on not being gay friendly, but I had to keep in mind that it is a religious organization. And I don't feel comfortable judging them for their religious beliefs and practices.

Other than that I have never heard of any scandal regarding the SA for as long as I have lived. Therefore I make it a point to make a donation to their Red Kettles every year. And in addition I just mailed in my yearly donation to their Thanksgiving Dinner Fund.

Sorry I haven't been here in a while, my mom has had a rough year and it has ended up with her having a hip replacement and going to an inpatient rehab facility. But she seems to be doing good now and she will be coming home soon.

Very nice bench, PF......looks great. Your dad did a nice job with what he had on hand.

I have a rack in my garage for lumber that I've salvaged or bought over the years. I retired from carpentry a few years ago.....commercial and residential. I still have many tools that I rarely use.......last thing I built was a 12' balance beam for my grand-daughter for Christmas in 2012.

I was just browsing Facebook and my friends that adopted the baby, had some pics from a professional shoot. He's 15 months and I have no idea where that time went! This kid melts my heart, when I visit he's pretty much at my hip all the time. We play, he gets his blanket and a book and we read, we have snacks. He's just such a well adjusted happy-go-lucky kid. We babysat him a week ago and he was totally cool waving goodbye to mom and dad, not a tear shed. They are coming for Thanksgiving, so that should be fun!

Sounds like the perfect age to get started with this Thanksgiving tradition, don't forget to send him home with a can!

Babies do have a way of melting your heart. And they grow up a lot faster than we want them to.
