Gobble, Gobble

I'm getting ready to head to Big City, VA in a few hours for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Louis is quite excited about our little road trip:

And, I'm looking forward to heaping servings of stuffing:


I was thinking, the other day, about what Thanksgiving means to me.  I don't have a huge family with bunches of siblings and cousins and such.  I don't have a husband or any little children.  BUT...Thanksgiving still has a "feeling" to me.  Or maybe it's Fall that I feel?  Regardless, this is what Thanksgiving means to me:

And the knowledge that:

Is just around the corner.  Sigh.....

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be 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 friends!!!
