Last weekend of the Fall. Tuck in to that turkey, winter is a’coming.

Takeaways From Thanksgiving.

It's the family tradition, every Thanksgiving Day,
The clan all gathers here come near, come far away,
Holding hands, around the turkey together they pray.

Every year
Our near
And dear.

Meet, greet,
Turkey meat,
Leave, replete.

Well fed,
Heavy head,
Goodwill spread.

Next year there will be less left to give thanks-
The Lord alone knows why He's thinned the ranks;
It's sad and lonely scanning these photos, seeing blanks. 

 
(Not in the best taste after a hearty Covid Thanksgiving get-together, I know.)


What’s cooking, or brewing here?

  1. Nothing quite the same. The closest we get in a ‘spiritual’- not to say religious, we’re a bit secular over here- way would be, to my mind, ANZAC Day. This commemorates an unmitigated Army disaster in WW1 involving Australian and NZ troops. It, at least has that sombre ‘this is An Occasion’ feel.
    (Isn’t it upside-down we remember a defeat?) As for the feast/festival/ bacchanalian side of it, grab the beer chilly bin, throw on the barbecue and get toasted!
