A lot of people have asked us to open the Notebook so they can come in for holiday shopping. Well, we're going to try it. If you're in Maine for Thanksgiving weekend, we'll be open from 10 to 5 on Friday and Saturday, and we'll have those same hours the following Saturday, Dec. 4. As for dates beyond those, well, we'll have to see what happens. Mind you, these will be your final chances to see the 2010 Notebook; next year, as always, we will change the look, address new topics and try to surprise you.
Let me add: A happy Thanksgiving to you all. Appropriately enough, we now have a flock of 25 wild turkeys roosting every night in the trees next to our house. The birds run to see Pamelia when she walks out the door—it's quite comical. I'm living with the Turkey Whisperer.
