Country Roses

We're thankful for a lot around these parts. Joyce and I hope ya'll all have a grand Thanksgiving wherever you are.

We just had three days of rain and yesterday was overcast, but no rain. Sunny but cold for today, Thanksgiving. We've already had a couple of frosts and the Knockout Roses in our garden are all gone. Even the Mums are dead.

But we still got Country Roses. At least on You Tube...

  1. Hey Dan! Happy Thanksgiving at y'all! Hope the day is filled with peace & joy.

    Sorry about the Jag. But, some things just gotta be did, and I'm glad Black Beauty is in loving hands.

    Love y'all!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Joyce, and all your family, Dan!

    (Dang. What sad songs!)

  3. Just two words for you and Joyce.....Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Actually, "A Room Full of Roses" is one of my favorites, but I confess to a preference for Jim Reeves' smooth rendition. This is an interesting accumulation of "rose" songs, though.
