It is the annual Gobble and Wobble time of year. By Tuesday we will all resemble the flightless bird and be permanently adhered to the couch. Did someone say pie?
This is the time of year to remember and give thanks for all we have. Engage Nova Scotia is looking for families to host new comers to their Thanksgiving table. Clickhere for more information if you would like to be a host a family.

82 year old Morris went to the doctor to get a physical. A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. A couple of days later, the doctor called Morris and asked how he was doing. Morris replied, 'Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.'' The doctor said, 'I didn't say that.. I said, 'You've got a heart murmur; be careful.'
The Merchants would like to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.
