When you wish upon a bone


Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving! May your day be filled with good food, good company and good fortune. Don't fight over the white meat and leave room for dessert, because someone slaved over that pie crust and you don't want to disappoint them. Skip the football game and go for a walk; your heart (and waist) will thank you. Make some little kid's day by cleaning off the wishbone and breaking it with them.

This year I am thankful for my family; my BF; my BFF; friends who get up at the crack of dark to go walking with me (and are willing accomplices in so much else); that I have a job that pays well (even though I am ready to jump out the window these days), a nice apartment, a good car, a warm coat, etc.; all of you who keep stopping by even though my crazy life has meant sporadic posting lately; and that the cats did not have a hairball on the white duvet cover today. Yet.

I'm wishing for my government to stop bailing out big businesses with my tax dollars, for an end to the war in Iraq and a swift conclusion to the escalating activity in Afghanistan, for there to be less hunger in the world, less suffering, more hope. Oh, and that the exiled African diplomat who keeps emailing me will finally come through with my millions.

What are you thankful for this year? What are you wishing for on your wishbone?

I'm making my famous pumpkin pie! I will save a piece for you. Lovely post, but unfortunately the exiled diplomat promised to send me those millions. Don't worry, drinks will be on me!

I thought he was only offereing those millions to me, in his endearing, broken English.

Happy Thanksgiving Robin!

So thankful this year that everyone (human and feline) is relatively healthy, that we have loving family and friends, a roof over our head, and lots of books. Also, that there is an end in sight to my current employment, which was giving me nightmares. Hope your situation gets better soon!

Hmmmm....an exiled African diplomat has been emailing me too...I'm starting to think he might not be who he says he is. Does that mean I should not send him my bank account info??

On an un-related note, we have the same taste in books. Nice.

So pretty! I'm thankful for family and good friends...and hopeful for a smoking hot bod!
