Thanksgiving

A Special “Happy Thanksgiving” to all my American friends!

This Historical Mural in Islington Village imparts to me the feeling of waiting for the delicious meal mother has begun cooking. I find this mural full of pioneer spirit, and family value which I send to you in lieu of a mural depicting an actual Thanksgiving feast.

This 2-storey high mural is on a house on a hill. That was a challenge for my IPhone!
