Thanksgiving 2010 Thoughts

It’s time for my annual Thanksgiving message.  Last year I did a little research and came up with the information that shows our old elementary school history books were totally inaccurate about the first Thanksgiving on our continent.  We were told it was in 1621 in Plymouth Plantation, Massachusetts.  Actually, there was one before that.  According to Wikipedia, it was in 1565  in St. Augustine, Florida.  I did have to do a little research to learn about that, which was good, because that showed I cared enough about you to go to the trouble.

This year I decided to keep it simple, but still go to a little trouble to again let you know I care. This time I had to pull out my Photoshop Elements 6 training workbook to learn how to overlay text.  The photo illustrates that you don’t have to go to New England or the mountains to see beautiful Autumn leaves.  They can be right in your own yard, or apartment complex, which is where this one was taken in Columbus.

    It was nice to see you after Barry Moser’s presentation. Now that I have found your blog I have plenty to do to catch up. You are quite prolific! I especially enjoy your personal views on area history, like this. And I use Photoshop Elements all the time, have for years. I would be happy to help if you need it. Though I only have version 2.0, so maybe I can’t help you. But I can try.

    Hmm, in fact, if you just need something done, contact me via my profile (click on my image at right to get there) and if I can do something to help you, or just do the art, I will be happy to.
