Happy Thanksgiving To All

Fact: Thanksgiving is the busiest day for plumbers!  Who do you think will be the busiest person on Black Friday?  Nike Sales Manager?  Walmart Staff?  Or Your Plumber?  You’re on the right track if your answer is the third option.  Plumbers are the busiest people after Thanksgiving, all thanks to the food they ate during Thanksgiving dinner.  Reports say that people call plumbers for various reasons, such as clogged-up toilets, kitchen drains, and garbage disposals.

We heard the pitty-pat of eight little turkeys above our office.  What could it be, Turkey Claus, perhaps?  Well, to our surprise, as soon as we got to the top of the stairs, the window flew open, and we saw eight little rein-turkeys attempting to get out the window at the same time!  It was like a Chinese fire drill!

The left us a present!

Much to our delight, the little fellas left a Thanksgiving Tree for us to delight in since we were home alone today!

Decorations everywhere!

They must have worked all morning on this tree, but they did a wonderful jon and we just stood there in amazement and wondering a) which of us left the darned window open last night, and b) who is going to clean up the turkey poop!

The tree was worth the cleanup effort!

As you know, ee are alone today thanks to my getting COVID but alone is not bad when you share it with someone you deeply love!  We got up a little late this morning, just letting those nasty germs get eaten by the good ones.

We had our morning ration of pills and magic elixirs and potions.  I feel like a pharmacy and that I am single-handily keeping CVS afloat!

We walked the garden and enjoyed the morning sun’s heat; sitting and getting warm was quite pleasant.  I did ask Scout, The Wonder Dog if he wanted to go for a  walk, and his response was priceless.

For most of the day, we sat and watched movies on TV.

Dr. Mary prepared a beautiful meal on our ready-ti-go-for-ten dinner table.   The turkey was fantastic as well as the other goodies.  Just sitting across the table from Mary made me give thanks for having a wonderful life, even with the ups and downs that come with it.

We missed everybody but better safe than sorry!

Colleen had the whole family over, which, I am sure, was a madhouse.  Jon, our oldest grandson, has grown up to be a real man, and we await his decision to begin a family!

Three grandkids and four great-grandkids make for an excellent picture!

We continued to watch TV but got up for some pumpkin pie.  After Mary fell asleep on the couch, I put away everything and straightened up the kitchen before waking her up and putting her to sleep!

I wandered off to my new bedroom (called Robin’s Nest) and had a good night’s sleep.  COVID shall disappear soon!  It’s like the nasty flu.

As I lay down, I noticed a pain on my backside; could it be another COVID symptom?  I asked Mary t check on it.

(I am in trouble for this one!)

Laying in bed, I thought a lot about today.  While we missed everyone, we did enjoy the quiet of just being together and enjoying our own company.  Mary is just a lovely person even when the flu makes her “grumpy.”

We were together in our thoughts!

Mary and I hope you had a magnificent Thanksgiving and shared the same love we share in our home with each other.  I am truly blessed!

God Bless The United States Of America.
