Happy Thanksgiving!

Okay, so it says "2009" on it.  Call it 'nostalgic'.  :D
Well, here we are again, at the beginning of the Holiday Season.  Can you believe it?!  Am I the only one who thought this year alternately flew by/crept by at a snail's pace?  Maybe that's everybody.  :D

Thanksgiving is my FAVORITE holiday.  Of course it is!  What other holiday has, at its core, the fine mixture of nostalgia and food?  That's really all there is to it (and around here, football).  No overt religious tenets, no gift-giving pressure, no annoying (after a while) holiday music - just giving thanks and stuffing.  :D

So today, my dear readers, I'm going to give thanks for YOU.  I've seen the blog really take off in 2011 and you are the sole reason for that.  Because after all - I could be writing the Next Big Blog but if I don't have you, it wouldn't matter at all!

Thank you for sharing my love of ephemera.  Thank you for retweeting my posts.  Thank you for "sharing" this blog with others who you think may enjoy it.  I have met so many wonderful folks through this medium, people I never would've met in real life were it not for this amazing vehicle we call the Internet.  I am so very grateful for your support and I appreciate every comment you leave for me.

I wish you and yours a peaceful, reflective, delicious holiday.  I'll see you back here on Monday with a fun Manto Fev surprise (yep, even I take a day off every now and then!)!  Enjoy your weekend, everyone!


  1. I just discovered your blog searching for "tobacco tags." Manila ones a lot like the "shipping tags" in vogue are still available using on tobacco. I always get some while in Hopkinsville, Ky.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, HVD! I'll have to Google "manila tobacco tags"! :D
