COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 112 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 87 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 26 DAYS


Happy Powerless August! Still no power for us but I'm dedicated to not missing a day of the Thanksgiving Countdown this year so here you go: 112 days left till Thanksgiving, 87 days to go until November and 26 days remain until The Bers. Speaking of dedication how about the dedication of all of you for being here? I'll never be able to convey how much I appreciate it as when I started this thread (last year's) I wasn't sure anyone would even post and it's built up now to where a bunch of people do regularly. I'm glad there's so much love for Thanksgiving. Hang in there everyone. 12 days left until we reach the 100 Day Marker to Thanksgiving. Tomorrow CW will post a special Thanksgiving Video for us. Have a great Powerless August!​
A bunch of areas in my county have had the power out and it really made me appreciate the blessing of air conditioning. Hope you are staying cool.

The cooler weather here has made it so much easier to feel how close we are getting to Thanksgiving! Hope you get power back soon and that you know how much your dedication is appreciated and how much joy our community brings me!

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 111 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 86 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 25 DAYS


Happy Week Into August! Here we go with our countdowns brought to you by this FRIDAY. Woohoo: 111 days till Thanksgiving, 86 days till November, and 25 days till The Bers. All 3 counts are moving along at their own pace and in 11 days we will reach the 100 Day Marker to Thanksgiving. That will be the final triple digit milestone of the entire thread. How's that make you feel? Well still no power here. I'm hoping today to get it back but they don't "promise" till Sunday night. They are working down the block from me so we'll see. Until then I'll keep doing what I can to keep the count going power or no power. I'm glad we didn't not have power on Thanksgiving Day. Have a great Week Into August!​

Its movie Friday!! Actually the post was supposed to be yesterday but for some reason it didnt post. So now its Friday short film time. Its a ancient old short about Thanksgiving.
What a perfect video for the times we're living in right now. Yes, things could be better. But they could also be a lot worse. We have so many blessings and privileges that we take for granted. We have so much to be thankful for every day.

It'll be a hard pill to swallow if they cancel the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this year. I'll have to come back here and watch this video again to make it go down smoother.

Thanks for a wonderful video @Christmaswarlock !!!

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 110 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 85 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 24 DAYS


Happy 8th of 8th! Oh yeah we have the powerrrrrrrrrrrr as He-Man used to say. Well we also have 3 countdowns here. We have 110 days till Thanksgiving, 85 days till November and 24 days till The Bers...remaining! And we have 10 days till our next milestone which will be the 100 Day Marker to Thanksgiving. That's going to be absolutely fantastic and I can't wait for it...but I can because that is more than 2 weekends away still. I want to enjoy having power this weekend. I kept the count going through the power outage thanks to having power at work. Never missed a day in the Thanksgiving Countdown Threads in the 2 years I've been doing it. Streak safe for now. Have a great 8th of 8th!​

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 109 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 84 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 23 DAYS


Happy Soupy Sunday! It's a little soupy out there this morning and cloudy. But that humidity just reminds me of what I really want. I want THE BERS> I'm there mentally now where I'm ready for it. But let's look at our counts to see how close we are to it. We have 109 days till Thanksgiving, 84 days till November and 23 days till The Bers. That Bers count really has quietly gotten low here folks. We are only 9 days away from our next milestone though when we reach the 100 Day Marker to Thanksgiving. That will be a big one indeed. Then it's all double digits. And by then we'll be close to SINGLE DIGITS for The Bers. Everyone excited about all of that because I am. Have a great Soupy Sunday!​

Today I am going to haul out my recipes and start building my Thanksgiving Day menu. I hope to have a list in place and divide up as many of the items as I can over my shopping trips in September and October. And I am grateful that it is a joy to have the oven running in November, if I had to cook and prep like that in August, I don't think Thanksgiving would be a feast!

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 108 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 83 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 22 DAYS


Happy Double Digits August! It's a warm and humid morning here as we are in the heart of summer. Our counts read as the following to start this week off: 108 days till Thanksgiving, 83 days till November and 22 days till The Bers. We have only 8 days remaining now until we reach our next milestone which will be the 100 Day Marker to Thanksgiving. That's going to be huge. And then we've got 100 days to build to the biggest day of the year for many of us. Turkey Day! Look how low The Bers count is though. YIKES! Only 3 weeks from tomorrow will be September 1. How is that possible? Summer really does fly somehow even though it's hot and humid. Sweating towards The Bers. Have a great Double Digits August!​

We've had very little rain this Summer. Our days are cooled off by the Atlantic's breeze but I have no idea how these old people play golf and tennis in the middle of the day. I didn't do that when I was running 10 miles a day. Some of these people are in their 80s and 90s still going strong. Then they're in the pool in the afternoon and out for dinner.

I get my short walk in before 8am and my hour swim before noon.
