OLD SIGN PHILOSOPHER, THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY!

HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY.......JASON
Smile.........tomorrow may be worse! (it's snowing now)

Twas the night before Thanksgiving
And anticipations were high,
For there's a feast to prepare
Complete with spiced pumpkin pie!

The casseroles were all set to arrive
With aunts and with cousins and all who would drive
From states far away or fly in from school,
All ready to buy into the big football pool.

The leaves for the table were all put in place
With napkins and runners, ironed linen and lace;
The centerpiece glistened with ripe polished fruit
And eggnog awaited--with brandy to boot!

Stuffing and gravy, red cranberry sauce
And other dishes from recipes lost,
All handed down from generations past,
Have been reinvented from Thanksgiving last.

Though it's only a day, maybe it can last for two....
For tomorrow we'll all have warm turkey stew.
So, we're sending our blessings from the GARDENS to you
For a Happy Thanksgiving and great leftovers too!

The men are hard at work completing their quarters before the harsh winter arrives. They are roofing the huts and continue finishing the interior walls with clay coating to draft proof the living quarters.
