Thank you for the suggestions on how to deal with my Picasa storage issue. I kept trying to see if the problem would self-correct but continued to get the message that I was out of space even though I was supposedly only at 19% capacity. The picture size I upload is very small and should not even count. I choose not to delete photos from old blog posts. I know it's silly, but I want to leave old posts as they are. With that being said, Google is now getting $2.65 a month so I can upload photos. I guess it's a small price to pay when you have the "blog addiction", but I'd rather have it in my pocket than Google's :-)

I had so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday. Older son Bill and girlfriend Melisa were able to make it from California.
Younger son "J" and girlfriend Jessica spent the holiday with us.
Great nieces Sophia and Alexis with grandson Jake.
Niece Elise and hubby Michael have a holiday tradition of spending Thanksgiving in Ohio. They have been coming from Chicago for at least ten years.
Thanksgiving dinner is always at my brother Bill's and SO Lyn's. I think my brother was having as much fun as the kids ~ giving them what he called a "bucket ride".

Very early Sunday morning after dropping Bill and Melisa at the airport, I was heading home on the interstate. I hit any icy spot and started to slide. I'm not sure what I did, but I had no way to stop. I crossed three lanes of the highway and slammed in to the concrete barrier dividing the north/south lanes. I may not be the most religious person, but I do believe Someone was watching over me. Crossing three lanes of traffic could have been catastrophic, but no other vehicle was involved. I was not injured. The damage to the vehicle was relatively minor but it would not run and was towed home. I am so very, very lucky and for that I am most thankful!!!
I am also thankful to have such wonderful blog friends. Thank you so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
