Happy Thanksgiving.


Turkey-grits.
.
This summer there were wild turkeys in our neighborhood - for some reason I can't post the photo however.  My cool neighbor posted it to her blog here.  This turkey family strutted up and down the alley and around people's yards and were just as polite as could be.  I live in the city - but there was some freeway construction not too far from here, and I suspect their habitat may have been disturbed.  A few neighbors wanted to eat them, which I find disgusting.  I'm not fond of turkey, and I do not like killing everything that walks by the house.  An interesting note:  Over the years, I have seen the following wild animals either in my yard or in my very urban neighborhood:  Deer.  Fox.  Raccoons.  Muskrat.  Rabbits of course.  Nesting wood-duck beneath my hedge.  Voles/moles.  Mouses.  Hawks.  Feral cats.  Lesbians.
.
So anyway - happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Here is some stuff I'm thankful for...
.
A place to live.  Heat and air conditioning.  Stuff to eat and drink.  A car to drive.  Friends and cats and dogs and bunny rabbits.  My religion.  Faith, hope and love amidst failure and trial.  The mercy of God.  Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, Our Lady and St. Joseph, the angels and saints.  My friends and my family.  Joy and sorrow.  Blue skies and cloudy days.  Sister death.
.
I can't mention names - because if I forget anyone some one will certainly be offended - but my best wishes and prayers and thanksgiving to all my friends and those especially who may not like me, and of course - to every one whom I have ever offended - which happens to be most people who know me BTW.  Happy Thanksgiving and God bless you.  And thanks for being my friend - despite the fact just admitting that may tarnish your reputation.  LOL!  No - I'm serious.

Just for you ________:

    I went to college in Grand Forks, on the Red River of the North; it flows northward so flooding is normal in the spring.

    One day, one of my classmates came in looking wretched and said she was on dike patrol the night before. The dumb girl asked if there was a lesbian problem in her neighborhood.

    Decades later, I still think it's funny.
