Athena, Thanksgiving 2015

Looking fairly regal, I have to say. I’m thankful for her and her mother, and all our family and friends, this year as in all years.
For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope you have much to be thankful for and that you lives are filled with happiness today and every other day. For those of you not celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope it’s an above-average Thursday for you.
Love the pendent.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Scalzi.
She looks like a hobbit just tried to give her jewelry. Happy Thanksgiving!
All Hail Wise and Glorious Athena!
Happy Thanksgiving to all. Off to eat chocolate…
What a truly lovely young woman your daughter is growing into! I can tell that you are intensely proud of her, as well you should be.
Happy Thanksgiving to all the Scalzi clan – and be sure to save some turkey liver for Zeus and the Scamperbeasts so they can share in the thankfulness.
Taking futari to a potluck. Was promised pie! And as I chopped 4 quarts of yams and acorn squash, I was profoundly grateful to the wonderful surgeon who spent three hours on Thanksgiving Day five years ago, repairing the mash of bone chips and torn ligaments that I’d made of my right wrist in a bad fall. Hope all of you have a fabulous day.
Her name suits her.
I don’t know for sure that that’s Bubo around her neck, but I intend to behave as if it is. Especially since that doesn’t require me to actually do anything. :-)
John, it’s kind of you to add in those who are not celebrating. Seriously.
Best to you and yours. You’ve got a lovely daughter!
Thank you for your kind words.
A happy day to all! I hope the critters can all tolerate a little bit of turkey. (For those of you who don’t have pets, too much turkey can give them the runs.)
I take it the pendant is the Owl of Athena, “a symbol of knowledge, wisdom, perspicacity and erudition”.
Happy Thanksgiving..! we don’t have a national day for that sort of thing here in the UK, though oddly we have very recently acquired your Black Friday anyway (in my newspaper this morning a columnist listed the ten things to do on Black Friday; from 1 to 10 they were STAY AT HOME).
Lovely picture. Have you ever shown her the 1981 Clash of the Titans?
I’m alway surprised when I listen to you; you have an excellent voice, and with some voice coaching you can do still better A third career awaits you, in the event that Tor decide to fall upon their collective swords, as you will doubtless be recruited at the speed of light.
.I’m a theatre person, so I have some expertise in this disgraceful nonsence; however, I think you’d do better confiscating all of their toys and send them home…
Narmitaj, I was just looking at that same page; the young lady knows her mythology! ;-)
Thankyou for that kind thought, I hope you and your family continue to have an abundance of things to be thankful for and that your day turned out well.
Thanksgiving? but that was last month! You simply haven’t lived until you’ve experienced a proper Canadian Thanksgiving. Traditional ice turkey with all the trimmings.
Not only regal, but a suitably stern look, as befits the goddess of law and justice.
She looks great and that owl pendant is super.
Lovely photo! Aren’t daughters just wonderful? I have one of my very own.
Ahh, my eyes, my EYES!!
