Happy Thanksgiving 2017 Dear Readers

It’s Thanksgiving Day my dear friends and we are here to wish you a very happy one. It’s our hope that you are doing something enjoyable today and have a place to go and good people to be with. I’m heading over to some family today myself but wanted to share a seasonal image with you and since this turkey was sitting proud over the streets at Macy’s I couldn’t resist.

Though her Indian Princess headgear is a little too big to sit on her comfortably, Spooke is ready to celebrate Thanksgiving in the most feline way possible. I’m fortunate that she is so patient with this sort of silliness.

Since Spooke seems to like this particular one, I am able to keep her dining to the day as well. Sure I can give her some real turkey later on but she is not one for table scraps which amazes some people to hear. Her mother Shadow used to love them but Spooke didn’t grow up knowing what human food actually was and now doesn’t have much interest as a result. More for me I always say 🙂

That’s all I’ve got for now as its soon going to be time for me to head over to family for some quality time and the eats. Stay thankful for all of the good in your world my friends, I personally feel very fortunate for good family, some good friends and good times. Let those who count in your personal world know that’s the case. Until next time and as usual I will def post some of the fooding from later on once I am back home at the Creative Command HQ. Have a Happy Thanksgiving once again.

Happy Thanksgiving 2016 To All

Hey there my readers, I just wanted to take a few minutes of your time to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving if you are in a part of the world that celebrates this today.

It’s a good day to reflect upon the things that make you feel thankful and I’d like to say that I am very thankful for the supportive parents that I have and my sweet feline girl Spooke. They make my personal world a whole lot better when it comes down to it. I’m thankful for my health and the friends in my immediate circle both real life and cyberspace wise. I’m thankful for a very interesting pursuit/passion that lets me celebrate the things I enjoy on a daily basis. I am also very thankful that you readers choose to come visit me here every now and again. It’s a pleasure to offer up some entertainment to distract from the occasional pitfalls of the day. Here’s a couple of things that you can do today to show some thanks and appreciation.

– If your parents are still with you and you’re not seeing them make a phone call. Not an email or text. No one is too busy for that.
– Spoil your pet if you have one. Extra treats, move away from the space that they want on the couch and added love to let them realize the special that they bring to your day.
– Text people you don’t see all that often and wish you did. Not a group message mind you but a quick thought from the heart. I feel that this goes a long way. I know I love those when I see them but definitely not the group message stuff since no one likes those anymore.
– Use your social networks in a positive fashion. No arguing politics or state of the world affairs. That stuff can wait for a day IMHO but chiming in with good words on other friends posts, that is best done a lot today.

That’s all I have to say but as usual with a post like this, I might add a photo of some of the food that was enjoyed today when that time comes. It’s not bragging, I just like taking photos of food 🙂 Enjoy your day.

Wishing Everyone A Happy Thanksgiving 2015

Just a quick wish of a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone that I know in the real world along with those I know from the cyber realm who happen to be celebrating this particular holiday. When I saw this giant stuffed turkey during one of my wanders, I knew he was perfect for this posting 🙂

I’m hoping that this note finds everyone who comes to this little site of mine in good form and that you have someplace to be today and friends/family/colleagues to be thankful with together. Recent news only firms up the need for our sticking together as much as and whenever possible to do so. Hopefully your planning on settling into a big meal today and please remember that there is NO Facebook at the table or even Instagram for that matter (unless of course you are like bombing any of my posts on our social networking pages hint hint, nudge nudge). You can save that for the coffee time without losing your mind I am sure. Try to check in with people who you might not have heard from recently or touched base with as often as you might have liked to for one reason or another. It only takes a second with a mobile device and please do not do a massive group texting wish because those are just so impersonal these days and start endless reply streams of “who is this, why are you texting me”……trust me I’ve been there. No bueno.

Speaking personally I am very thankful for all of the wonderful people who have touched my life along with the extra special thanks to my parents and my sweet cat Spooke. I’m sad that we don’t have Shadow here with us anymore but wow was I thankful to have as many years as we did together before she left. Be extra appreciative of your fur babies today as well with added treats, leaving them be on the couch even if they are not supposed to be there and more playtime. Oh and did I mention less Facebook already? I hope so. I’d like to think that everyone seeing this has something if not several things to be thankful for even if its not always clear as a bell. Do a little extra today as appreciation of that and see if you can keep that mindset going well into 2016.

That’s all I got, have a Happy Thanksgiving my Friends.

Happy Thanksgiving 2012 Readers :)

I just wanted to take a moment and wish our readers a very Happy Thanksgiving for 2012. This holiday comes with some tremendous burden after the recent super storm that our immediate region took on and while we were fine, there are many that we knew who lost possessions, dwellings and their means of transportation. It is a circumstance like that one which makes you truly appreciate the comforts of family gatherings all the more. This Thanksgiving I headed over to the parents place and it would only be us this year which is kind of nice every now often. Now with you readers knowing how I play in both Yelp! and Foodspotting, I could not resist taking some food photos and sharing them in this blog posting. I opted for here instead of Facebook. For me this is more fun.

Here’s a shot of the bird fresh out of the oven. I do love turkey but think that there is never a day that I love it more than on Thanksgiving. It seems to taste so much better to me on this particular day.



The rest of our spread was mashed potatoes (both sweet and regular) along with stuffing, brussell sprouts, mushrooms, carrots, and gravy. It was more than enough and since it was only we three, I would be guaranteed some leftovers for the PiercingMetal Command HQ. I am very adverse to that. For dessert we enjoyed some cake, apple cider, a coconut custard pie and some miniature eclairs. Looks like I will need to do some serious walking tomorrow to work that off.

Part of me gets sentimental around this time of the year when I think of those who have left us and how the way things were done for such a holiday don’t get done that much but I am very thankful to have had those individuals in my life for the time that I did. I think back fondly at times at my Grandmother’s house where there was more food than one could imagine and a massive table of people and always other relatives passing by for a hello and a quick drink. Of course I was not drinking at the time. Really, I do mean that…..but I digress.

Today I am thankful for all those who have mattered in my life and whose very being enriched my own. Be sure to love one another while you can. That’s all I got for now. Happy Thanksgiving once again.
