“In November, people are good to each other. They carry pies to each other’s homes and talk by crackling woodstoves, sipping mellow cider. They travel very far on a special November day just to share a meal with one another and to give thanks for their many blessings – for the food on their tables and the babies in their arms.”– Cynthia Rylant, In November

“Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is.”– Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea

“I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage.”– Erma Bombeck
