Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a Safe & Happy Thanksgiving. Here is your postcard!

But I can't leave this postcard without comment. It's beautiful, isn't it? The table is gorgeous, laden with traditional holiday fare and a stunning bouquet. The hearth is so warm and cozy. The whispered "Thanksgiving" wafted in the steam from some delicious bubbling soup is a whimsical touch. And that delightful cat is so pretty as it gazes into the fire.


I know and love cats. No cat I know would be sitting there gazing contentedly into a fire if there was an unattended table with a roast turkey sitting on it. If this were a photograph, it would have had to be snapped in a split second, just when the turkey was placed on the table. A second later, the scent of that turkey would have drawn the cat to the table, where it would risk life and limb--and a squirt from a water bottle--to nab a drumstick. I had to chuckle at the unknown artist who created such a scene. I think a woman did this, don't you? She must have been a real dreamer. I'd have loved her.

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Hi! Thanks for commenting on my blog, I appreciate those who take the time to say a few words. I know how hurried I get when visting other blogs and sometimes I feel guilty for not leaving a little note.

    That postcard is very nice. My older brother is an artist and painted Christmas cards one year that he sent. He said it was a lot of work and hasn't made any since.

    Happy holidays to you!

  2. Can't you see all of the fumes coming out of the kettle? That's tuna cooking.
