Happy Thanksgiving!

(Date correction made Friday, Nov. 28)

NORWALK, Conn. — It’s Thanksgiving Day, and many of us are having a bird.

Not to say many aren’t “having a bird” on a daily basis, but that’s another story.

For many years, my Thanksgiving tradition involved getting out of bed, bundling up and heading for either Barnstable High School or Guv Fuller Field in Falmouth, both on Cape Cod, to cover the annual Thanksgiving Day football game between the two biggest schools on the Cape. Later, it meant driving 60 miles from Hyannis to Brockton, Mass., to work a holiday shift in the newsroom. And later still there were Thanksgiving shifts in Boston, Florida and New Jersey.

This year will be a bit different. NancyOnNorwalk’s focus means no football, no holiday fluff features, no fires or accident coverage. It means we get to take a bit of a break for a few days, just like so many others, to spend with family and to recharge the batteries.

We will have fresh stories each day through the weekend, but not as many as usual. We will keep an ear to the ground for breaking stories, but, with most government entities shut down until Monday, we expect a quiet few days.

So enjoy the holiday weekend as will we. We will get back up to speed Dec. 1 — yes, MonSunday is Dec. 1. Already.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Our good friend, Ernie Dumas (A Better South Norwalk) is holding his 19th annual Thanksgiving Day Feast at SoNoCC (98 South Main Street) today from noon until 5:00p. If you know of anyone who could appreciate a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings, spread the word. Ernie’s “Hot Meals and Warm Coats” includes a large selection of hundreds of winter coats after you finish your meal. No charge, thanks to the generosity of our caring community. Volunteers are always welcome!

    To Nancy and Mark, thank you for all you do. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a well-deserved rest!

    Let’s hope it stays quiet and you get to enjoy the Parade on TV and a nice meal. We need to be reminded, most of us, that we have a lot to be thankful for. Unfortunately, we spend an awful lot of our time though the year focused on events and conditions we are NOT at all thankful for.
