Pilgrim Tough

I’m a descendant of Pilgrims that came over on the Mayflower. They survived a grueling 66 day journey, a brutal New England winter and much sickness to make it to the first Thanksgiving Day feast.

Me, I’m hunkered down at home, next to a space heater because it’s raining outside and temps have dropped in to the low 50’s.  Brrrrr, I would never have survived as a Pilgrim!

I’m very thankful my ancestors were made of tougher stuff  than me. Oh and here’s to modern day niceties like indoor heating too.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  1. It is amazing to think of what they endured in hopes of a dream— their dream has helped our dreams come true — happy Thanksgiving— you stay warm out there in San Diego Tricia 😂

    Happy Thanksgiving Tricia!!
    We have a lot to be thankful for and most of all the creature comforts we have.
    I remember my Grandma and Grandpa talking about getting indoor plumbing. They thought that was a very height of comfort. You know what I’m talking about if you’ve ever made the trek to the outhouse in the cold!
    Our weather is just like yours, wet and in the low 50’s but we are snug as a bug in a rug. This is Texas so it will change tomorrow.

      Happy Thanksgiving Dennis! We do have it pretty good in this country, don’t we? It’s easy to lose site of all the comforts we have like indoor plumbing and heating.

      Glad you guys are snugs as bugs in a rug. Stay dry out there!

    My ancestors came over three years later, on the second ship after the Mayflower, the ship Anne. They landed at Plymouth Rock in 1623. Maybe we’re related?

    Happy Thanksgiving!
