America's Lady of Supernatural Thrillers

“Raven's Cove, a great mystery by Mary Ann Poll. Avoid it when winds are gusting to hurricane speed outside. No extra creepiness needed.”
~Bonnye Matthews
Step aside Stephen King, Alaska’s Mary Ann Poll is here to spin new tales of the super-natural and the ungodly, as her heroes and heroines take on the forces of evil on 'The Last Frontier.' ~Jeff Babcock

Happy Thanksgiving from Ravens Cove Alaska

Today is a cold one for this time of year. Usually, we are around thirty-four degrees, but today our forecast is for the mid-twenties and a north wind, which means I'll be pulling out the Army-green parka and clunky boots. On the bright side, the cold means fair skies…after 9:30 a.m. when the sun peeks out from behind the mountains. Today the cold is last on my list of concerns because this is one of my favorite events of the year – Thanksgiving at Grandma's house. But I digress.

It seems like half the town gathers at Grandma's (Alese Bricken for those of you who do not know her) for Thanksgiving. It is the time to catch up with my neighbors. Funny how we live in a small town and in the winter we can still go months without talking to each other.

We will have the traditional American feast but with parts of my Alaska native heritage thrown in – Grandma cannot seem to cook a meal without adding moose to the menu and, of course, smoked salmon for the appetizer. And, there is the pumpkin pie and mincemeat – does anyone know how a mincemeat pie became part of this? Not my favorite, I'll tell you! But, I will have a tiny sliver because Grandma thinks it is good for my bones. And, I choose my battles with Grandma.

No matter where you are in this great country of ours, I pray you enjoy your day and that you are with those who are near and dear to your heart. No matter what your day brings, may your turkey day be blessed!

Until next time…… Chin'an gheli – for my English-speaking friends: Thank you very much.
