Mauri thanks for posting that today, quite appropriate I'd say.

That's one thing I am thankful for, as I don't do all that cooking and baking anymore I am not overwhelmed with leftovers, so all that food is not calling out to me, lol.

Happy Thanksgiving to all that are celebrating. We Canadians have already had our Thanksgiving celebration in October. Let's all rejoice and be thankful regardless.

Love the poem...makes me giggle everytime. Thank you for the reminder to enjoy.


Hugs,

Since we in the USA are celebrating Thanksgiving Day & I have heard many people say they hope politics is not discussed, I thought Shirl's poem may give us all a chuckle.
***************
Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't sleep. I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned -- the dark meat and white, but I fought the temptation with all of my might.

Tossing and turning with anticipation, the thought of a snack became infatuation.

So I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door and gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes, pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round, till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky with a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.

But I managed to yell as I soared past the trees....... happy eating to all---pass the cranberries, please.

Try not to gobble till ya wobble, but have a Happy Thanksgiving!
