Happy Thanksgiving to All

Thursday, November 27, 2008


May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs! 

~Author Unknown

I’m still out sailing the high seas, but I wanted to wish you all the happiest of Thanksgivings.  Enjoy your day!
