Be Thankful Today and Everyday

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

--Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

The Thanksgiving Song by Adam Sandler

"The Thanksgiving Song"

"They wanna hear the thanksgiving song! All right.."
"This is uhh, This is the Thanksgiving Song"
"I hope you enjoy it."

[Starts playing]
Love to eat turkey
Love to eat turkey

[Shout from Crowd:] "I love you Adam!"
[Adam Sandler:] "Ohhh, I love you!"
Love to eat turkey
'Cause it's good
Love to eat turkey
Like a good boy should
'Cause it's turkey to eat
So good

[Adam Sandler:] "That clappin's messing my head up man. I appreciate it.
But I was trying to think of the next line and all I hear is clapping.
Here we go... Thanks anyways"

Turkey for me
Turkey for you
Let's eat the turkey
In my big brown shoe
Love to eat the turkey
At the table
I once saw a movie
With Betty Grable
Eat that turkey
All night long
Fifty million Elvis fans
Can't be wrong
Turkey lurkey doo and
Turkey lurkey dap
I eat that turkey
Then I take a nap

Thanksgiving is a special night
Jimmy Walker used to say Dynomite
That's right
Turkey with gravy and cranberry
Can't believe the Mets traded Darryl Strawberry
Turkey for you and
Turkey for me
Can't believe Tyson
Gave that girl V.D.

White meat, dark meat
You just can't lose
I fell off my moped
And I got a bruise
Turkey in the oven
And the buns in the toaster
I'll never take down
My Cheryl Tiegs poster
Wrap the turkey up
In aluminum foil
My brother likes to masturbate
With baby oil
Turkey and sweet potato pie
Sammy Davis Jr.
Only had one eye

Turkey for the girls and
Turkey for the boys
My favorite kind of pants
Are corduroys
Gobble gobble goo and
Gobble gobble gickel
I wish turkey
Only cost a nickel
Oh I love turkey on Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Sunday Stealing: Thanksgiving Meme

This week's Sunday Stealing comes from the archives!

1. Are you celebrating Thanksgiving at home or elsewhere this year? With whom will you spend Thanksgiving Day?

I plan on celebrating Thanksgiving at my in-law's house.  My husband, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law and sister-in-law will be there.

2. What do you have for breakfast on Thanksgiving?

For breakfast I will be having an apple and a cappuccino.

3. Do you go to a Thanksgiving parade or watch one on TV?

I watch the parade on TV each year.  I am too lazy to go to one.

4. Do you serve appetizers, lunch, or snacks during the day?

I serve snacks if I am hosting and if I go to someone's house I take a snack.

5. What do you wear on Thanksgiving?

I wear normal everyday clothes...nothing special.

6. What's your Thanksgiving table like -- do you use special plates/silver/glasses, etc? Do you have a centerpiece? A color scheme? Candles?

No need for a color scheme.  But I do like china and nice silverware and a pretty centerpiece.

7. Do you serve buffet-style or family-style? What do you have to drink?

A sit down, family style dinner with water for me to drink.

8. Once you're at the table, do you say grace or a toast or does everyone go around and say what they're thankful for?

We say grace.

9. Do you have dessert right after the main meal or later on?

It depends on how full everyone is.  Dessert is usually an hour or so later if needed.

10. What do you do with your leftovers?

I eat the leftovers that night and for the next day or two.

Camera Critters: Shelby Selfies

Camera Critters
Yesterday, we took Shelby to the vet to get her nails trimmed.
Then we went to my mother-in-laws house so Shelby could visit with Grandma.
On the way home, we stopped at the comic book store.  While the hubby was inside
Shelby and I sat in the Jeep and took selfies.  Here are two that I could get her to
sit still for.  Shelby is such a sweet dog.  Hard to believe she is 10 years old already.
