    TWAS THE NIGHT OF THANKSGIVING, BUT I JUST COULDN'T SLEEP
    I TRIED COUNTING BACKWARDS, I TRIED COUNTING SHEEP.

    THE LEFTOVERS BECKONED - THE DARK MEAT AND WHITE
    BUT I FOUGHT THE TEMPTATION WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT
    TOSSING AND TURNING WITH ANTICIPATION
    THE THOUGHT OF A SNACK BECAME INFATUATION.

    SO, I RACED TO THE KITCHEN, FLUNG OPEN THE DOOR
    AND GAZED AT THE FRIDGE, FULL OF GOODIES GALORE.

    I GOBBLED UP TURKEY AND BUTTERED POTATOES,
    PICKLES AND CARROTS, BEANS AND TOMATOES.

    I FELT MYSELF SWELLING SO PLUMP AND SO ROUND,
    'TIL ALL OF A SUDDEN, I ROSE OFF THE GROUND.

    I CRASHED THROUGH THE CEILING, FLOATING INTO THE SKY
    WITH A MOUTHFUL OF PUDDING AND A HANDFUL OF PIE.

    BUT, I MANAGED TO YELL AS I SOARED PAST THE TREES....
    HAPPY EATING TO ALL - PASS THE CRANBERRIES, PLEASE.

    MAY YOUR STUFFING BE TASTY, MAY YOUR TURKEY BE PLUMP.
    MAY YOUR POTATOES 'N GRAVY HAVE NARY A LUMP.
    MAY YOUR YAMS BE DELICIOUS, MAY YOUR PIES TAKE THE PRIZE,
    MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    PET THE CAT!!!!

    Cool Black Cat with Green Eyes. If you tease her with the mouse pointer on her chest or stomach she will purr, I got her to meow also, by rubbing her forehead with the pointer. If you make a slow circle around her body, (counter-clockwise) not only will her head/eyes follow your pointer, but toward the top, her paw will go up, and when in front of her paws at the bottom, her foot comes out like she wants to play with your mouse pointer.

    A Dinner Of Thanksgiving

    She was just a bent old lady
    Her hair was full of gray
    I was just a child of seven
    Who had stepped outside to play.

    Her dress was worn and tattered
    She looked so frail and thin
    But her eyes were warm and caring
    And she kindly asked me in.

    As the morning hours were fading
    I recall her gentle plea
    "Please stay a little longer
    And enjoy a meal with me."

    I had no way of knowing
    That her shelves were nearly bare
    But it didn’t really matter
    She was glad to have me there.



    The meal was small and meager
    But I felt like I’d been blessed
    When I sat there at the table
    And she served to me her best.

    In honor of her memory
    This moment I will seize
    To be thankful for the bounty
    When we shared a bowl of peas.

    I am humbled by her spirit
    Unblemished through the years
    She’s smiling down from heaven
    As I wipe away these tears.

    For she, too, still remembers
    That warm delightful day
    When a little girl of seven
    Had stepped outside to play.
