Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving day. May you spend it with friends and loved ones and may you find you have many, many things to be thankful for.

This old Norman Rockwell illustration made me chuckle. Did they really do that to people who ate too much?
I'm taking a few days off to enjoy some family time. Be back Monday.

I think many of us might be candidates for the stocks after Thursday's dinner:) Enjoy your Thanksgiving and time with your family, Marnie.

tina said...

Marnie, wishing you a lovely Thanksgiving! Enjoy your family and eat lots of great food. (don't worry, they don't use the stocks any more!)

Phillip said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Dog_geek said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! I hope you have a great holiday with your family! They'll have to get the stocks ready for me, because I plan on eating too much. It will be sooo worth it!

Roses and Lilacs said...

Thank you Cameron, you do the same.

Hi Rose, I will do both--eat too much and enjoy my family;)

Hi Tina, you too.

Darla, thank you.

Hey Beckie, I guess the fact we can pig out and not get put in the stocks is something to be thankful for;)

Phillip, you have a great one too.

Cute picture. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Jamie and Randy said...

Marnie,
I looked it up, they sure did. They also used the juice of berries to stain them with a scarlett G on their chest. They were locked up in the stockades for no less than a fortnight. Pretty wild! That's interesting to know. Have a good Thanksgiving.-Randy

Enjoy a beautiful Thanksgiving with family, Marnie ... wishing you a safe return home.

troutbirder said...

Yup they did in those days. That's an early ancestor of mine. Gluttony is definitely my family gene pool! Happy Thanksgiving Marnie to you and yours.

Frances said...

Hi Marnie, wow, that is one sad pilgrim! We are lucky they don't lock us up for overeating on Thanksgiving of all days, it is hard to resist all those tempting dishes. May you have a wonderful time visiting with your family.

Sweet Repose said...

Sherri said...

Marnie, wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving! I think alot of people after Thanksgiving Dinner would have been thrown in the stocks!! Enjoy your day!

Roses and Lilacs said...

Hi Connie, you too.

Hi Randy, a fortnight is 14 days right? Sounds awfully harsh!

Joey, thank you, we may try your cranberry relish recipe;)

LOL, troutbirder we must be related;)

Hi Frances, we can be thankful for that. Getting punished for overeating on Thanksgiving--99% of America would be in the stocks.

Hi Gail, you too, see you Monday.

Hey Sharon, shhhhh, what if a Pilgrim is lurking and overhears you;)
Marnie

Roses and Lilacs said...

Hi Sherri, what a mood killer that must have been. I hope my family won't be that strict about pigging out;)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Marnie! Enjoy your time with your family!

rambling woods said...

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Marnie...

Anna said...

If they did that to my family...we'd all be strapped to that contraption. We are all gluttonous eaters when it comes to turkey and mashed tates. I hope you have a good one and stay out of trouble.

Patsi said...

Enjoy !!
Happy Turkey Day.

TC said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours too Ms. Marnie.

Kathleen said...

Oh too funny Marnie. I think I would have been strapped in on more than one Thanksgiving. I wish you a wonderful holiday too. Enjoy your time off.

Cordwood Cabin said...

Happy Thanksgiving! (And don't worry, none of us wear the frilly outfits for tidying, either;-) Enjoy the holiday weekend!

Patsi said...

Forgot to let you know about this...
There's a meme that you may want to participate in. The title is "Summer 2008 Inspiration". If you want just visit me or Shady for details.
It's all about having fun !!

Thanks,

Patsi said...

By the way your seeds went out today. Hope you enjoy.

The Tile Lady said...

We would all probably have been put in the stocks on Thanksgiving! :-) Hope you had a wonderful day!
