Let Us Give Thanks!
I took a stroll along American Way a couple of days ago and took the photos that appear here and promised myself that, other than a calendar listing for the tree lightings, I wouldn’t touch on any holidays other than Veterans Day and Thanksgiving.
Also along American Way are the new clay pots surrounding the tree wells. This is a very nice addition to the local scenery. Planted to the brim with assorted pansies, they really do stand out. Many of the storefronts and display windows are decked in fall finery. My favorite window is the one at Stonewall Kitchen. I just love that store! Speaking of which, please see the calendar listing for their Thanksgiving Prep event. They are having a free drawing for a $100 gift basket that day – be sure to drop in and fill out an entry form.
It will really be crazy over here come December 8th when the much anticipated opening of the MGM Grand Resort and Casino takes place. This will really add another dimension to the Harbor. There is already plenty of conversation about how its’ opening is going to affect the traffic pattern around this joint! Stay tuned to this section for more information about the MGM in upcoming editions.
Thank the men and women you encounter in uniform for their service, count your blessings this Thanksgiving and be kind to one another!
