But this little bumper sticker on the car in front of me the other day reminded me that Veterans Day also occurs in the month of the turkey.

Looking back, I see that most all of my holiday columns are quite traditional, New Jersey based, and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that! But, I have a larger personal scope on this thing we call Thanksgiving this year, and I know no other column would work for me but this one.

Articles for All Around Pennsauken are submitted approximately three weeks prior to the publication date. It is difficult to predict what the weather will be that far ahead. Heck, many times the weather people can’t get it right a few days in advance!
