HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

How many cooks does it take to stuff a turkey?
Only one, but you REALLY have to squeeze to get him in.

Grandma was showing the children a painting of the Pilgrim Family on a Thanksgiving Day card that they had received and she commented, 'The Pilgrim children enjoyed going to church with their mothers and fathers and praying to God.'

Her youngest grandson looked at her doubtfully and asked, 'Then why is their Dad carrying that rifle?'

~~~~

Martha had a parrot called Brutus, the only problem was that Brutus cussed something awful. Now Martha was having her in-laws over for Thanksgiving, and so she needed to train Brutus quickly not to swear.

Just before her Mother-in-law was due Brutus cussed terribly, so Martha but him in the freezer for 2 minutes to literally cool off. Then she opened the door and took out the parrot along with the turkey.

'And have you learned your lesson about cussing?' Martha asked the parrot.

Brutus the parrot took one look at the dead turkey and said: 'I sure have. But I have one I have a question, "What did the turkey do?"

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Sorry about the double post, it was supposed to be this one
~~~
Nathan, a young boy, after hearing the story of Thanksgiving and how the Indians and the Pilgrims sat down together, climbed up into his father's lap and said, 'Daddy, did you know that if we were Indians, you would be a brave and Mom would be a squawk?'

'That is the best description of your mother I have ever heard, Nathan', replied his daddy as he ducked.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!! And go Cowboys!

I'm thankful for a healthy grandson who will be celebrating his very first Thanksgiving.

I'm thankful for getting to sell that horrible house this summer in that town I didn't enjoy much.

I'm thankful for my new job and home here in the Dallas/Fort Worth Texas area.

I'm thankful that I was alert enough to stand on my brake fast enough to not be hit in 2 separate incidents of 18-wheelers deciding to pull into my lane with no regard for the fact I had that area of the right lane kind of already occupied and that I lived to drive to work yet more days.

And I'm thankful Sploofus exists for us all to enjoy so much. Thank you, Justin. Thank you, friends (on and off my list).

And thank you, God, for your blessings. No matter what is happening out there in the world, we still have more blessings than we can count.

Despite Smaug's probable urge to barf if he reads this, York, PA [first capital of united states] does have a place in history regarding the establishment of Thanksgiving in our country's history.
Here is some background. Kudos to Sam Adams. Have a beer and a peppermint pattie!

============================================

Common view: Thanksgiving had its origin in York Town when Congress issued America's first National Thanksgiving Proclamation while meeting here. [November 1, 1777]

Perspective: Congress, indeed, approved a proclamation of thanksgiving and praise after the British surrendered at Saratoga - the first of seven such days set aside during the American Revolution. The proclamation, in effect, extended the New England custom dating back to the Pilgrims to all the states.

In covering the history of Thanksgiving, most national authorities discuss the Pilgrims' Thanksgiving of 1621, President George Washington's proclamation of a national Thanksgiving Day in 1789 and President Abraham Lincoln's 1863 proclamation making the national day an annual event. American historians only occasionally give weight to the days of thanksgiving during the Revolutionary War as part of their work on the holiday.

This perhaps stems from the fact that these thanksgiving observances predate the adoption of the U.S. Constitution, a watershed event that established the U.S. presidency, and the fact that Thanksgiving didn't become an annually observed national holiday until 1863.

The National Thanksgiving Foundation is one organization that treats the National Thanksgiving Proclamation as a seminal event. "That night he (proclamation writer Samuel Adams) gave each of us the national thanksgiving tradition which every American has known since infancy," the foundation noted. "Thanksgiving could have died out a quaint New England custom, an accident of history, but Adams' determination started this - our most beautiful national tradition."

Alvandy, have you thought of selling "York, Pa" t-shirts, and the like?

I, for one, would rofl at the thought of owning of real honest-to-goodness "York, First Capital of the United States" t-shirt.

Barry Barry Barry....sigh...... That's ok. They're TEXAS's team. Not that we're not also proud of the Houston Oile....I mean.....Texans. But MY hat will always be off to Tom Landry and the team of my father and my father's father....and of my son. And my son's son. (My grandson's mobile over the babybed is Dallas Cowboy stars with a football in the middle.) Five generations of Cowboy fanatics. May we be singing "Drop Kick Me Jesus" at church on Superbowl Sunday this January.

Ditto on that Bradd with an emphasis on the "Go Giants!" Loved that win by the Jets last week!

A lovely Thanksgiving to all on the Island. Have a wonderful day, enjoy the football. Does anyone think the Lions will win? Poor guys...what a terrible team.

The Titans will win today over the Lions...and Super Bowl Sunday should be the Titans against the Cowboys...I've been a Cowboy fan since 1971...and they need another Tom Landry if they can find one...These are my two favorite teams and always will be....I salute the Cowboys and the Titans....
