Happy Thanksgiving

Turkey Time

‘Twas the Night of Thanksgiving

‘Twas the Night of Thanksgiving, But I Just Couldn't Sleep
I Tried Counting Backwards, I Tried Counting Sheep.
The Leftovers Beckoned - The Dark Meat and White
But I Fought the Temptation with All Of My Might

Tossing and Turning with Anticipation
The Thought of A Snack Became Infatuation.
So, I Raced To The Kitchen, Flung Open The Door
And Gazed At the Fridge, Full Of Goodies Galore.

I Gobbled Up Turkey and Buttered Potatoes,
Pickles and Carrots, Beans and Tomatoes.
I Felt Myself Swelling So Plump and so Round,
Until All Of A Sudden, I Rose Off the Ground.

I Crashed Through The Ceiling, Floating Into The Sky
With A Mouthful of Pudding and A Handful of Pie.
But, I Managed To Yell as I Soared Past the Trees....
Happy Eating to All Pass the Cranberries, Please.

May Your Stuffing Be Tasty, May Your Turkey Be Plump,
May Your Potatoes 'N Gravy Have Nary A Lump,
May Your Yams Be Delicious May Your Pies Take the Prize,
May Your Thanksgiving Dinner Stay Off Of Your Thighs!

No Inferior Vena Cava Filter for TG!
I went to the hospital yesterday for an out patient procedure to have an Inferior Vena Cava filter placed in body. I went through all the motions, had the IV inserted, had my little cute gown on, and was wheeled into the room for the procedure. The cut was made, and the doctor looked at my vein where the filter would be placed and stopped. He first told me that all human anatomies are different. Then he told me that my vein where the filter would be placed was too large to place a filter. He said if they put a filter there it could break loose and go to the heart and cause death. So I agreed with him!

So without the filter I may be in some risk due to blood clots, but I feel that with blood thinners and following doctors that I will be OK. My knee surgery is next Tuesday.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
We’ve got a gang with us today for Thanksgiving.
We’re having a great time.
I’ll pictures tomorrow.
I love everybody!

Quotes of the Day
Our rural ancestors, with little blest,
Patient of labour when the end was rest,
Indulged the day that housed their annual grain,
With feasts, and off'rings, and a thankful strain.
~Alexander Pope

Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.
~W.J. Cameron

Joke of the Day

It's the day before Thanksgiving, and the butcher is just locking up when a man begins pounding on the front door.

"Please let me in," says the man desperately. "I forgot to buy a turkey, and my wife will kill me if I don't come home with one."

"Okay," says the butcher. "Let me see what I have left." He goes into the freezer and discovers that there's only one scrawny turkey left. He brings it out to show the man.

"That's one is too skinny. What else you got?" says the man.

The butcher takes the bird back into the freezer and waits a few minutes and brings the same turkey back out to the man.

"Oh, no," says the man, "That one doesn't look any better. You better give me both of them!"
