Happy Thanksgiving – Friendsgiving from Patty’s Worlds

November 24, 2022

Moon Phase New.

Good morning, and happy Thanksgiving from Patty’s Worlds.

Here, the coffee is hot, the weather is not and that’s the way we like it.

I still have my cold, flu, COVID or whatever it is but I’m not feeling too badly right now.

I’ve meds for the symptoms, I’ve plenty to eat so I’m staying home, and will be enjoying a ton of online events.

Speaking of online events, later today, in the ACB (American Council of the Blind) we’re having Friendsgiving and all are wanted and welcome.

You need not be a member, it matters not if you’ve been with us before, all that’s important is that you know how to join in.

First, write an email to: community@acb.org Believe it or not, a real human will read and respond to your email. I know, that’s a big surprise these days but that’s how it’s done in our community.

In your email please include your name tell them you’d like to be signed up for the community daily schedule and that you’d like call-in info for today’s events.

We’re also going to be on Clubhouse. So, if you use that platform, look for the ACB room and join in there.

If that weren’t enough ways to join in, don’t look now but there’s one more.

You can ask you’re a lady to play it on ACB Media 5.

That’s right, we’re gonna livestream all day.

Thanks Big! Big! To all our Facilitators, Hosts, Moderators and Streamers for their herculean efforts which make this possible.

More importantly, thanks to all who attend. For without you, we’d have no reason to do what we do.

If you know someone who doesn’t have a ton of digital devices who might like to join in the fun via way of a Landline, have them phone: 1-800-424-8666 and follow the prompts.

Please note, this phoneline is not updated when changes happen on the fly.

Anyhow, I’ll be facilitating from 2 to 3. So come on by and say hi.

Well, that’s what’s up with me and the Chief today.

Speaking of the Chief, he woke early, had his walk, breakfast, game of ball and now he’s back in the bed.

For now, I bid you a happy Thanksgiving, may Harmony find You and Blessid Be.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Patty. Have a great day and enjoy all your Friendsgiving events.

    1. Good morning Carla, I hope you’re having a great day.
      Thanks so much for reading and commenting.
      Happy thanksgiving.
      And if my memory has slipped and you’re somewhere else in the world, then have a happy Friendsgiving because one can do that everywhere.
      In our Zoom ACB Community we’ve people from round the world.
      It’s an amazing bunch of people.

      1. I’m in Canada so our Thanksgiving was in October, but being so close to Detroit, we celebrate again today. There is never enough time to express our gratitude and thankfulness about all we have in life.

        1. Hi Carla, I agree.
          Glad you had a good day!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and those who mean the most to you!

    1. Good morning, Annette.
      I hope you had a fabulous day and that this day brings you much joy as well.
      As is said in The Dark Tower series…
      “Long days and pleasant nights.”

  3. Hi Patty, wishing you a happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your fun filled day. Hugs.

    1. Hi Robbie, thanks much.
      Even with my cold, or whatever it is, I had a great day.
      I created a texting group with my grands, where we spent the day chattering with one another.
      I cooked my favorite foods just the way I like them, which is the good part about living alone.
      I enjoyed visiting with a friend who dropped by even though I am sick. She said, We’ll just sit apart from one another and came right ahead.
      I also visited with friends around the world during the ACB Friendsgiving.
      Other than wishing I could give my daughter a hug at the end of the day as we talked together on the phone, I have to say, it was a brilliant Thanksgiving.
      Thanks again for your good wishes.
