Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Since Grandma didn’t write anything a hundred years ago today, I thought you might enjoy this advertisement for carving sets. It appeared in Grandma’s local newspaper, the Milton Evening Standard.

Are you prepared for Thanksgiving? You won’t want your guests to think that your turkey was tough just because you don’t have a good carving set. 🙂

  1. Hehe, yes, that “tough turkey” mention made me smile too! I’d love one of these carving sets, they sound just lovely. 🙂 When is Thanksgiving, Sheryl? Australia doesn’t share this wonderful celebration with you, although I have thought for years that we should.

        1. And, it’s now Wednesday evening here. I suppose it’s mid-morning on Thursday there. It’s amazing how we can easily communicate across the many miles.

          1. Yes, it is amazing, I’m so happy to have been born into a time when the world is so much closer at hand, without leaving your own home. Happy Thanksgiving, Sheryl. ❤

    1. The ad brings to mind Thanksgiving pictures in old magazines of the turkey being ceremoniously carved at the dining room table by the man of the house using a fancy knife and fork. 🙂
