HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL TVNL MEMBERS!


A game warden was driving down the road when he came upon a young boy carrying a wild turkey under his arm.

He stopped and asked the boy, 'Where did you get that turkey?'


The boy replied, 'What turkey?'


The game warden said, 'That turkey you're carrying under your arm.'


The boy looks down and said, 'Well, lookee here, a turkey done roosted under my arm!'



The game warden said, 'Now look, you know turkey season is closed, so whatever you do to that turkey, I'm going to do to you.


If you break his leg, I'm gonna break your leg. If you break his wing, I'll break your arm. Whatever you do to him, I'll do to you. So, what are you gonna do with him?'



The little boy said, 'I guess I'll just kiss his ass and let him go!'



May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

One Thanksgiving/Christmas tradition at my house is to ""SIGN THE HOLIDAY BOOK"." That means that family and friends who visit during either or both of these holidays are asked to write a few lines in a Holiday Journal about what they're thankful for or what their most outstanding memory is of the passing year. They sign their statements and date them. This little book was begun at Thanksgiving, 2001 and is over half full now. It has become one of our most cherished possessions. There are pages of my late parents' comments. There are the scribblings of the grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, which allow me to watch their budding maturity as their handwriting improves. There are a few pages devoted to a record of the Christmas ornaments that are hung on our Christmas tree each year as to where they came from and why they're important to the family. This year, I will add to the list what my 2008 Christmas ornament is: WHITE HOUSE 2008. I ordered it from the White House Historical Association to commemorate the historical 2008 Presidential election and our wresting the White House from the Republicans. I'm going to also print the list below of 17 REASONS TO GIVE THANKS THIS YEAR to paste into the Holiday Journal:

17 REASONS TO GIVE THANKS THIS YEAR!


I'M ALSO THANKFUL TO JESSE FOR THIS UPDATED WEBSITE AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY HERE. :mrgreen:

Just remembered to make my annual contribution to KGO radio's Thanksgiving charities.

In the past, I would send a check. This year they made it easier, but allowing people to donate online (without the overhead cost!).

HARD TO BELIEVE IT'S TIME TO PULL THIS THREAD BACK UP AND SAY HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE AT TVNL FOR 2009! AS SCROOGE SAID, I'M FINDING MYSELF A YEAR OLDER AND NOT A BIT RICHER, BUT I'M UPRIGHT, WHICH SHOULD BE SOMETHING TO BE HAPPY ABOUT! WE'RE HAVING A LOT OF FAMILY THIS YEAR FOR THE HOLIDAY FEAST AND THEY'RE THE ONES I REALLY LIKE, SO IT SHOULD BE A GOOD ONE. HOPE YOURS IS, TOO!

Happy Thanksgiving!

My brother and his friends are hosting something for his side. My brother-in-law will be visiting them. Thank goodness. Not sure I could stomach his praise of -- all people -- Sarah Palin. :oops:

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

I will be thankful if progressives manage to get a decent health care bill passed. They are working hard for it, but the health care business, Rs, and conservaDems are working to water it down to being worse than meaningless.

Go Progressives!!!
