“Happy Thanksgiving” 2018 My Friends

Hello my friends and a wish of “Happy Thanksgiving” to you and your families, if you are in the part of the world that is celebrating along with us today on this frigid NYC Day. It’s sooooo cold and winter is not even here yet so bundle up if you are on the East Coast and heading anywhere today such as the Macy’s Day parade. As this is a day to give thanks overall, I must share that I am very thankful for my own family, dear friends and those who take the time to peruse whatever I have decided to write about on “The Chronicles” or on PiercingMetal.com – All of you mean the world to me.

The world around us tends to remind us just how fleeting our time is with our loved ones and beloved pets so use that time wisely and treat each other well as much as possible. I’m not trying to be grim or anything as much as I am saying to be good to each other while it can be done. Hold the door for someone, donate food and clothes to a shelter, feed or rescue a stray cat or dog that you see all the time. It’s all going to make you feel better inside at the end of the day. Thanks once again, its time for me to brave the ever-changing schedule of the MTA as I head to relatives in another borough. I hope that you get to your own destination without incident today. Remember to never text and drive or take unnecessary phone calls. Unless you are Batman, no one needs to be called or messaged as you head somewhere. See you soon and by the way, this years photo was observed on a lawn in nearby Dyker Heights.

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.
