Deer Friends

We had a great visit with some
'deer friends' 
on Thanksgiving. 

this is little Buckarooskin

 and his sister Doeskin

I stood on the deck and we talked

they gave me their full attention 

as Mama stood guard

watching the neighbors dog 
chase a squirrel up a tree

Thanksgiving Humor

My Thanksgiving prayer is that in whatever, 
wherever, whenever, whoever or why

One of my funniest Thanksgiving memories is the year when all three of our young adult children made the trip from Wisconsin to Missouri to spend Thanksgiving with their Dad and I.  After a day long marathon of "Christmas Story" and the thought of Ralphie shooting his eye out with that B.B. gun, we sat down to a full fledged Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings.  We praised our Lord, gave our thanks and began filling our stomachs; after which I suggested a break before dessert.  I told the kids that I was going to enjoy the evening and sit on the dock for a bit.  When they asked if they could help buy putting the food away, I directed them to where they could find containers and the plastic wrap if needed.  Jeff and I headed out to sit on the dock to watch the ducks and geese float by as I was ever so thankful for the family gathering and the laughter coming from the house.  Shortly after they all emerged from the house to enjoy the beautiful fall evening with us.  So much to be thankful for. As I reentered the dining room, I burst into a full belly rolling laughter until tears were streaking down my face.  Those goof balls had taken a couple of boxes of plastic wrap and wrapped the entire table, with plates and food still in place.  Under the table and back up and over, again and again and again. In every direction you can think of until it looked like a giant Thanksgiving Chrysalis.  I was sure a huge turkey was about to burst through it at any second. I still laugh at the memory of that sight - that very special holiday comes back to mind year after year, just like the layers upon layers of plastic wrap on that Thanksgiving table.  

Happy Thanksgiving to All!

Could this really be the answer to my blogging problems? Do people actually use these to arrange their week? 

Heck I don't even know what I'm doing at the moment; let alone plan an entire week!   Heaven help me ~ have I been out of the loop to the point of not even knowing I was out of the loop?! 

NO!!!  Some are supposedly planning it by the MONTH ...  wait a second, I have to catch my breath ...
