Thanks Time USA

Image by SnaggleTooth Nov 2010
Folks gather to gobble,
Turkey n stuffing.
Eat pie with abandon,
Abandon diets to gorge
The Pilgrims in Plymouth
Had a grand harvest meal
With the Massasoits
Long ago circa 1621
Before the nation
USA was conceived
Thanksgiving was born
Became family tradition
We look forward to
Favorite family dishes
Long missed faces
Football n family games
In 2010 we're happy
Not to travel,
Buy bargain presents
N cut down expenses
I'm grateful to have work
When so many do not
But tired of working nights
N having no holidays
I long to have time
To relax n visit
To see everyone
N gather to gobble again
About 300 years later
I visit folks online
Have sit alone to dine
N technology is the past time
I'd like to thank
All you folks of Blogland
For keeping me company,
For visiting, n commenting
Have a good holiday!
I have to work...

They called me in again tonight off my vacation. So we'll work together. Will I'm in Oklahoma but that is not the point. Tomorrow I'll sleep as everyone eats or sleep face down in my sweet potato pie.

You too have a happy tomorrow. Oops Today

Funky poem.

Been like that for far too many years when I was younger.

Have a happy Gobbler day!

Here's to our next 300 years in blog and pixie dust lands we shall ever romp together in, now that we have been lucky enough to become good friends.

I love that art you did, reminds me of all the best sparkling fun in winter.

I have not done a Thanksgiving post as such today. But the day is young! Who knows what could happen? :)

I actually have dug up an old photo of my brohter and me when I was maybe 4 and he 7. He is turning 50 on the 27th. I'll be putting up that pic on that day. I'll schedule it for 3:00 a.m. to give you a shot at being an early commenter! :)

Hoping to find a "scratch removing" feature in PaintPro. You ever run across it? My friend says most of such programs have that feature.

I love the reminder of the original Thanksgiving.

I cleared 20 boxes of junk out of teh dining room earlier today to get that room back. Front room full of boxes again, but one must not rush these golden unfoldings. ;) Final frontier is to take the newer bigger fish tank out of the d. room to give its energy to a place better suited for its size.

No football chez funster. But a small turkey will be going into the oven later. Fixin's will be made.

Thanks for all!!


BB sends mutch loves, of course!

He's out peeling acorn squash.

Lynn, Awww- Thank you- One of my non-fictional "What it is" poems- Your visiting me is a good thing!

G, Not my normal metered rhyme, but can't do the same stuff all the time! Now I'm older n missing out. Sleep helps too- 3 am n I'm just eating the turkey brought home for after work! Thanks, you too-

JanF, with out this gadget here, I'd never known of you! I especially treasure the silly stuff I'd otherwise not think of if not for meeting you!
Don't forget I live very close to Plymouth where the first Thanksgiving took place! There's even a decendent of an original Pilgrim living right down my street- n he has furniture that came over on the Mayflower! That's old!

Under "Effects"/Enhance Photo/Automatic small scratch removal
is in the top of the third section of my Paintshop Pro in that list - below the all important contrast control. Good luck!

Tell BB not to peel the acorn squash until it's cooked- I spoon it out as I eat it- after putting brown sugar n butter on the piecen of course. Happy Turkey Carrots!

Way to go dear friend in art poetry and celebration of friendship.

Hey, Snag. I ended up doing the scratches manually, and they look much much better than the original pic. The effect fuzzed it up too much overall.

Okay, so Kelly said they learned at school the Pilgrims slaughtered a bunch of the natives after they had eaten? Yuck!

Gran Annie, Thankyou. I don't have a big grateful for list this year- But you folks are it!

JanF, time consuming, isin't it? I've done that a few times-
that's an old family pic one which ripped.
The effects are usually less of a miracle than expected- but i do like my tree pic here!
I hadn't heard that just that we killed them off with smallpox...
n that's why table manners are so important!?

BB, You fuzzy chef! Gravy with squash sounds interesting... Burt i like acorn sqaush plain too.
