Happy Thanksgiving



It's Thanksgiving Day down in the States Here's to all my many Yankee friends Wish all you folks have a wonderful day All my good wishes I do send Florida was mostly my destination of choice The Gulf Coast almost exclusively Siesta Key is just a little south of Sarasota Where the theme is semi-nudity Those vacations are less common nowadays Money's not flowing like it once did However before the big man calls me upstairs Wish to relive my days as a kid Nostalgia I guess is what you would call it Actually been there on your Black Friday No offence but you guys are nutso “Sorry, didn't mean that!” he said slyly! Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving, I'll say it again Enjoy this day with your families There's nothing more loving and rewarding Than to share a day of geniality Here's to all my many Yankee friends! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Thanks, Jack. I just now saw this. Did have a great Thanksgiving. Still have food leftover. I probably will gain 10 pounds by the time the holidays are over :). Finish your Christmas shopping yet?

    Our Thanksgiving is in October, I guess because of the shorter growing season! So our Christmas shopping has no definite starting point like you have! Enjoy! Love and hugs... xox

    This is a beautiful Thanksgiving wish to all Americans! I really appreciate your gestures! You are so very kind my friend! I wonder why your Thanksgiving is in October and ours is in November? I know one thing, it's sure a lot colder here for Thanksgiving than what you probably had! We had a high of 28 degrees Fahrenheit! This poem is a grandiose write my friend! I surely loved reading this delightful poem this evening! What a fabulous piece, such an enlightening poem, Great Work!!

    I guess the reason is our growing season is shorter! It's the only reason I can think of. Woke up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit this morning... brrrrrr! An unusually cold autumn! Maybe winter will be milder... we can hope!

    Florida's an OK place, eh? I'd much rather travel north to see my friends from BC to PEI and Newfies out there on the coast. Regards, Jack a month late.

    Well the contrast of our Canadian winters and the Florida sunshine is what did it for us! Wow one side of Canada to the other... what is your connection? Family... friends? Cheers, Jack

    Everyone here is raising their glass to you... I'll keep Dragon home on Black Friday... Even HE might not survive what's out there... Everyone will be online shopping, too (at once) so the internet will probably be acting up on Cyber Monday. Yes, we are our own worst enemies... Even Dragon pales in comparison. But not to worry. I'll keep everyone home baking cookies, & pumpkin pies with a fire in the fireplace. We'll string popcorn for the Christmas tree... and watch 'It's a wonderful life"...
