Thanksgiving Day Sky


 An annual Thanksgiving Day event in Sacramento is the Run to Feed the Hungry.
 It has become a tradition for our family to participate even though it means dinner will be a little late.
Twenty-eight thousand people showed up at this fund raiser for the food pantry and family services.

See more views of the sky at SkyWatch Friday, hosted for us by Klaus, Sandy, Wren and Sylvia.

To all of those celebrating today, Happy Thanksgiving!

We've done the Turkey Trot in Mesa Arizona with our family for the last eight or nine years. It is sponsored by a local service club. We usually do the two mile walk/run option, while the runners in the family do the 10K.
