It's Hump Day and the day before Thanksgiving. I'm usually preparing for my Wednesday therapy sessions with the denizens of AREA 51 but I'm unsure if anyone's going today with all of the preparations necessary for tomorrow. I'll resolve that question once I finished today's entry.
I'll be celebrating Thanksgiving with my pals, Lydia and Alfonso, together with their families. My Pals, Dr. Marc and Rosie will also be attending and if this year's meal is anything like last year's, it will be fantastic ! Lydia is an excellent cook and Al always holds up his end of the deal by checking the Johnny Walker Black bottles for leaks. As per our normal arrangement, Dr. Marc and I are employed as assistant leak checkers and I know what you're thinking, so don't go there. I am refering to the Johnny Walker Black Bottles.
Tomorrow's a family day and although my children live in Orlando and Las Vegas, I have (and always had) the good fortune to share this special day with many close friends. I am thankful for my family and friends and looking back through the years, I don't think I'd change anything. Sure, there were bad times, but I think the good Lord has special plans for each and every one of us, and somehow I don't think he gives us more than we can handle.
If you have lonely men coming for tomorrow's Thanksgiving meal, I have a special method for preparation of your turkey. It's a simple procedure and can be easily accomplished by using well placed aluminum foil on the bird while cooking. You'll thank me for this idea.
There'll be no rants or raves today. I'm just in a laid back mood and my entry today will reflect that. Keep your guard up though, because you know there's always the chance of a pop quiz and you always have to read between the lines.
The Pictures: Todays pictures are of the "aw..." variety, basically because that's what struck me. I found some cartoons that I also like and I entered the captions underneath in case they don't show well. Then, there's a chicken crossing the road. Why? Next to last, but not least, an answer to a pressing question that's been asked of us many times in our lives. I have visual proof, my little forest rangers.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
That's it for today, my little cranberrys (Authors note: November 22; cranberries, I stand corrected by my pal, Nancy. I guess I was thinking of Ralph Cramdonberry). Possum S. Hemmingway (he asked me to use his given name) and I, wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. More tomorrow.
