Happy Turkey Day!


Be Thankful Today
and every today, as we have this day to remind us
(and let’s have a bit of levity with our gratitude!)

Holidays can be hard at times

For any of you who need a little cheering up today, I’ve ended with a few cartoons that gave me a giggle.

8 Things I am trying to be especially thankful for today:

  1. Even though I love to play holiday hostess, I’m thankful that I didn’t have to try to squeeze in several days of cooking and cleaning this year.
  2. I’m thankful that I have a roof over my head, clothing choices that make me feel pretty as they keep me WARM, and that I won’t go hungry as the rest of the country feasts.
  3. I’m thankful that TinkerToy is the best company a Mom could wish for on Thanksgiving, even if we never see another soul.
  4. I’m thankful that I have so many wonderful and supportive virtual friends with whom to spend my time today.
  5. I’m thankful that, even though I haven’t owned a television in decades and miss Manhattan like a lover, videos of Macy’s 2016 Thanksgiving Parade are sure to be posted online somewhere.
  6. I’m thankful that TinkerToy’s post about N24 and chronorhythm disorders was finished early enough to be posted yesterday, so that I could commandeer our computer to wish all of my readers a very Happy Thanksgiving.
  7. I’m particularly thankful that other than ADD, N-24, and presbyopia, I have usually been (and remain) amazingly healthy.
  8. And I’m especially thankful that enough of that dreaded administrative work is behind me so that I can finally announce Open Enrollment for the upcoming Group Coaching opportunity!!

AND NOW . . . on to those cartoons!

for a reminder of how links work on this site, they’re subtle ==>

HOVER before clicking – often a box will appear to tell you what to expect

A little bit of turkey day humor . . .

I know I made you smile

The next few below are from Carl Dagostino’s very clever blog.  If you are not already following him, be sure to click one of the “Found HERE” links below each cartoon and correct that oversight post haste.  He really DOES make me smile, as promised.

I have to warn Lucy (from the devilishly clever PorterGirl and Who Shot Tony Blair blogs) that there is something in the next one she needs to get ready for – but my ADD buddies will ALL relate!

Anyone who’s friendly toward Monsanto might want to skip the next one entirely.

And for anybody who’s starting to wonder if Carl’s is the ONLY funny blog I’ve found, here’s one from White Out Comics that will especially appeal to anyone who struggles with stress or panic attacks:

TIME to go for now

    I especially like the Dry Bones (“Undocumented Immigrant”) cartoon. Isn’t it ‘funny’ that we see others as undocumented immigrants but not ourselves – the original undocumented immigrants!

    By the way, since you mentioned that you “miss Manhattan like a lover,” you might want to check out my new post on my blog today (for which I thank Woody Allen).

    • Yeah – that one made the point well, didn’t it?

      Thanks for bringing your Gershwin/Manhattan post to my attention. For anyone else who wants a stroll down memory lane, check out ALLEY BABBLE AND THE FORTY THEMES

    • Thanks, Kate. I had a lovely time with the blended family of a colleague – and they sent me home with a bit of turkey for Tink – which made for a VERY happy Thanksgiving for both of us.

    • I understand. I almost put in a cartoon that called it Tofurkey Day, but I was afraid that too many of my readers wouldn’t relate. Boundless Blessings to you on this day, no matter what we call it.

      I’m grateful that you took the time to read and comment (and, as a result of your comment, I added ONE more thing at the end).

    • Thanks – they made me grin, and a friend who was not happy because her usual turkey plans fell through actually laughed.

      Eat-drink-be merry!

    • Thank you, Lucy – and you’re welcome. But the important thing is, did you laugh at the poor kid?

        • I felt bad for his MOTHER – who probably stayed up all night making that darned costume. (You KNOW that kid pulled an “Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that tomorrow I have to have . . .” at bedtime).
