A Happy Turkey Time

To you and yours! Let’s be thankful for what we have. Enjoy this merry time. If you gain weight it will be just fine. So, eat up. Don’t count calories.

Here’s the Dieter’s Prayer:
Lord, grant me the strength that I may not fall
Into the clutches of cholesterol.
As polyunsaturates, I’ll never mutter,
For the road to hell is paved with butter.
And cake is cursed and cream is awful.
And Satan is hiding in every waffle.
Beelzebub is a chocolate drop.
And Lucifer is a lollipop.
Teach me the evils of hollandaise,
Of pasta and gobs of mayonnaise.
And crisp fried chicken from the South
Lord, if you love me, shut my mouth.

In memoriam

Nicole, my golden retriever, who passed away this week. She will be missed. Her family pack already misses her.

She was diagnosed with canine myasthenia gravis, or the enlargement of the esophagus, which has no cure.
