Canadians have had Thanksgiving in October, but our Americans friends are giving thanks for their good fortune and blessings this week, on November 23.
I had a thought about Thanksgiving. Why not have pea soup instead of turkey? It’s all around us with this fog as thick as pea soup.
November weather tests us hard
Makes us eat more, donning lard
On the thighs and round our ribs,
We wish the weight scale told us fibs,
Now we need to eat some more,
Friends and family at the door,
Time for all to meet and greet,
Turkey dinner can’t be beat,
But with fog like thick pea soup,
Why not feed it to the group?
Not enough, I hear you say,
We want roast turkey anyway.
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. I know we are all thankful for what we have. It’s not just about the food, but about giving and sharing, and loving our treasured family and friends everywhere.
