Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving my dear friends. As we continue to be brave and face each day together. I want you all to know how Thankful I am for you.

There are days when the heaviness of this year starts to get to be much. I want to thank you for lifting my spirits. This land of blogging is a positive outlet for me and it brings me so much joy. At the very same time you all bring me smiles, inspiration and so much more.

Thank You

There's a Great Big Turkey Out on Grandma's Farm

To the tune of Polly Wally Doodle

 There's a great big turkey out on Grandma's farm, 

And he thinks he's very gay.

He spreads his tail into a great big fan and struts around all day.

You can hear him gobble at the girls and boys,

For he thinks he's singing when he makes that noise --

But he'll sing his song a different way

Upon Thanksgiving Day!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Carla. We are just two this year-my daughter/grandgirls live 7 blocks away and might as well be on the moon. lol. Hopefully, by next year we can all get back to real life. Take good care-xo Diana

  2. Dear Carla, it has been a difficult year for some of my blog friends this year in more ways than one but their faith and friends and families is what keeps them going.
    When we put our trust in God it helps a lot.

    Covid numbers are going up in our province as well as one area had a large social event and that's all it takes. We are still opened but for how long?

    Are you going to get one of those big turkeys for your Thanksgiving dinner. The prices for turkeys is so high in our grocery stores. I've never seen any wild turkeys around here. Maybe we have too many foxes around. If I was you, I'd put a few in my freezer.lol.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you as well my dear friend and stay safe and well.
    Hugs, Julia
