A Bountiful Thanksgiving

It’s a funny old world and I never thought I would feel this way but all of you have become very important to me – I think of you as my blogging family (pass the sick bag, Monica—quiet at the back!). I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving where I come from — well, there’s the Harvest Festival in the UK but it hasn’t been made much of for years except by the Church). However, I wanted to use this day to thank you all for your sterling support and encouragement. It’s extraordinary how loving and warm it feels to have you around.

When my computer (instead of me, just for a change) went to hospital in April, I missed our conversations — the funny as well as the sad. When my ex-husband died in September, I was overwhelmed by your compassion here and on Rogues & Vagabonds. I had not expected to feel quite as distraught as I did at his passing so that when so many of you propped me up with your comments, it made a world of difference.  So…


THANK YOU VERY MUCH


I leave you with this delightful scene from The Marx Bros’ A Day at the Races which sees Groucho making sure to mind his Ps and Qs! If you didn’t recognise the allusion in my title (yes, I know you did, Maedaz!), this clip will explain.


May all your Thanksgiving celebrations be warm and wonderful.

Take care and keep laughing!

“Well, art is art, isn’t it? Still, on the other hand, water is water! And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now, uh… now you tell me what you know.”
