Thanksgiving Weekend

So, the weekend is almost over. Just the Ravens game to watch tonight. It was a quiet weekend here. A little cooking. A little outdoor radio planning. A visit to W3LPL’s QTH to pick up an award plaque for our service to our local club.

I don’t do much on the radios around here but supporting the local club members is something I enjoy.

Just like supporting my local farms. Like Wheeler Farm at their market, and South Mountain for their ice cream.

We don’t do Black Friday. Never have, but small businesses get our money year round. Not just one day a year. Don’t do Cyber Monday either.

But Giving Tuesday? A big deal for us. Who benefits? The Amateur Radio Relay League and the Howard County Conservancy.

So yeah, the weekend is over but our lives are enriched by those organizations. Year round. They are our extended family.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving (belated) and happy winter holiday season ahead! I was so privileged to finally be able to get my ARL license 2 years ago, via weekend class an instructor was willing to come and do for us in our small community – STILL have on my wish list the equipment in order to start ‘doing’ – funny how many years, for work, I had an FCC license (radio DJ, dispatcher) and all, and yet, now I have my own tested for license, I’m held up via infrastructure/hardware investment – but, hope springs eternal!!! 😀 And yes, I’m with you on supporting local businesses/clubs year round, instead of once a year frenzy!!
