Hope everyone is ready for Thanksgiving because the day is here! Somehow my mindset has not been prepared for that fact. Surely does seem as though this holiday came pretty quickly this year. I was just getting accustomed to summer evolving into fall.

Thanksgiving memories and thoughts immediately have me vocalizing:

"Over the river and through the wood
to grandfather's house we go ..."

This Thanksgiving song was originally a poem by Lydia Maria Child. Years later the lines were changed to "grandmother's house" and became a Christmas song
Wikipedia reports.

This version is as a Thanksgiving song, but retains the change to grandmother. Enjoy!

Wishing one and all a most pleasant day whether alone or with family and friends.
