Happy Thanksgiving 2017

 So, Thanksgiving Day . . . I never quite know what to put up for Thanksgiving. I mean, I could make a joke; something like Look who’s coming to dinner!

Past years are of little help. In 2012 I did a summary of that year’s Flash Fiction. In 2013, I PUNNED. People liked the 2014 Thanksgiving post because it was short. In 2015, I was ankle-deep in NaNoWriMo and must have plain forgot. Last year saw a mishmash of stuff . . . and I have a feeling this year will be no different. 

I could talk about goats . . . Thanksgiving goats are a thing, right?

Wait, this is Hawaiʻi and there’s nothing that says Hawaiʻi like . . . 

I mean, if I were back on the mainland, I’d probably be doing some sort of leaf-motif . . . 

. . . although, I’m not sure if that hints Thanksgiving. 

Sure, I could do flowers . . . 

. . . but, again, are they really “Thanksgiving?”

Food is something associated with Thanksgiving, but this year we bought all pre-made stuff (thanks, Costco!) so it’s nothing exciting. I have photos of past food (can’t wait until we have a house again because I miss this stuff) . . . 

You know what? How about this?

Thank you all for reading this little corner of the Internet. Stay safe, stay strong, and . . . 

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would mean something to me.

  1. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Sometime you’ll have to find someone who does Kalua Turkey for Thanksgiving. Ono!!

      Thanks, you too.

      I’m friendly with a few locals, but not friendly enough to get invited anywhere (which is OK). That sounds pretty good, though. I wonder if they sell it anywhere (we buy almost everything from Costco and they do have some local dishes; I’ll have to look, although I doubt that’s going to be there).

    Mom’s got a bowl of crostoli ready . . . wish you were here to enjoy them! Besides appreciating having you two in our lives, I sure do like that beautiful poster! Enjoy the day!

    Happy Thanksgiving!
    So glad to have stumbled across your little corner of the internet. There never seems to be a dull moment here! :)

    Happy Thanksgiving, Emilio! I’m repeating myself, but it bears repeating.


  7. Don’t tell me you’re turning back to religion in your dotage?
    This is a religious thing I believe. Thnaksgiving, something to do with the Puritans, Brits I think from the 15/16/17th centuries or thereabouts.


    • disperser says:

      Much like Christmas, whatever the origins of the celebration (and I don’t consider Thanksgiving as having a religious origin) the modern meaning has — like everything else — transmogrified into “buy lots of stuff” and “eat lots of food.”

      . . . no religion needed . . . none had.

      • I don’t even bother; the War Office carries on a bit she’s a Catholic doesn’t go to church though, doesn’t practice the religion but she’s a Catholic, ’nuff said!
        I used to get involved for the children but now they’ve grown I just stay at home and treat it as another day

    Those two guest on the top sure look polite.. but hey, I guess a mere leaf motif would do! :)
    (PS: I wonder what ‘FP ward’ is, though)


    • disperser says:

      Thanks . . . and FP ward has a link you can click to get an explanation . . . which follows:

      in brief, at one time WordPress would pick blog posts it deemed worthy — whatever that means — and “Freshly Press them”. Basically, they would hold up the post and tell everyone “HEY! Look here; something shiny!”

      That usually translated into instant notoriety for the owner of the blog and usually bring a slew of followers. As I explain in the post, I prefer organic versus artificially fertilized; meaning I like to use my own crap to sow a fertile field of crap-enriched content. Basically, I have an aversion to being helped on the road to achieving immortality (well, virtual immortality, as in being remembered for ages after I am long dead). Mind you, I’m realistic when assessing my chances of that happening as 0.000000001207%. But, say I do beat the odds . . . I would prefer it was all due to me being weird and stuff as opposed to WordPress pointing at me and saying “come look at this weird guy”.

      I read the requirements for being Freshly Pressed . . . good spelling and clean language. Hence . . . . chieken shit; my FP ward.

    Have a good one, or has it happened already, oh well.
    I keep wondering how you are getting on with the house hunting, but then you have probably mentioned it and I never read the post.


  10. Love all the pics, especially the first one! :-D (snort)
    Sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving at your place!
    I am thankful for you, Emilio! And for your photos, words, sense of humor, stories, etc! Thank you for bringing joy into my life!
    HUGS for you and Melisa!!! :-)
