Happy Thanksgiving to you all in the U.S.
It's a "Turkey time"---a "Family time "- and a wonderful long weekend.
Remember the movie, "Trains, Planes and Automobiles"--my all time favourite movie-
I remember one thanksgiving, all of us, refused to eat a couple of chickens, which we were pretty sure Himself has served up, from our pet chickens-- Colonel Saunders and Pecker-
Yu see, we used to spend summers at our cottage--Himself travelled to an outpost clinic several times a week, in a farming area about 30 miles away-
One evening, he arrived back at the cottage, with 2 live chicks--
I was flabbergasted!-----but--(that big "butt)-- after containing these wee guys in one of the children's playpen in our family room, life went on---
Of course they grew and began to follow our children everywhere--
There was lots BBQ-ing--at our cottage, and by now, the chicks were chickens, came when called, and stole weinors from the children and gobbled them up--all summer!
Well, at the end of that summer, Himself took Colonel Saunders and Pecker, back to the farm--and I signed a huge relief--
However, thanksgiving arrived---and lo and behold, Himself arrived, with 2 chickens, ready to cook--
Funny thing-- the chickens tasted like hot dogs---even tho Himself told us differently--
We couldn't eat them!
So, enjoy your turkey my friends --"Be grateful for small mercies-"-(my Mom always said that)
-- Himself today , the guy I love--with his head so much better!
From all of us to all of you-HAPPIEST OF times, this THANKSGIVING !
