thanksgivingToday is Thanksgiving in America, and as promised this post is going to be about that. The Holiday celebrates a gathering of American Indians and settlers referred to as Pilgrims. The Pilgrims were thanking the Indians for their help in growing crops such as Corn. It has developed into the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season. It would seem that the greedy just can’t let a day go by without making about buying stuff. I wonder if there will ever be a time when humans will be thankful for what they have and not go crazy for what they don’t need. I have watched how in the last few years stores have open earlier and earlier on the day after till now they open at 6pm on Thanksgiving day so that the people that work or that are crazy enough to shop can’t sit down and enjoy the Holiday. The tradition used to be Turkey dinner and football now it would seem the tradition is to stand in line waiting to get into a store so you can fight over a toy or TV that you don’t need but have been convinced you can’t live without. Jeff long ago found that after dinner and the games if there was something he needed and there was a good price all he had to do was go online to the same store and buy it. I’m thankful that I never had to get involved in all that. I’m thankful that Jeff found me in the shelter and took a chance on me and then put up with me until we became the friends we are today. Jeff is thankful for his wife Ruby all His friends in America and his Nieces. He’s thankful that they’re happy safe and that they grew up to be the type of people that their parents would be so very proud of. He wishes everyone could feel the way he does and that the holidays could go back to being what they were originally. As for me I’m so glad that I have friends like Jeff, Ruby, and my little buddy Hari. I’m thankful for the opportunity to write this blog even if not to many people read it, but I too wish that the holidays could go back to the way they were. I hope that as long as I’m alive Jeff keeps celebrating them the way he does. Jeff is opening a can to turkey cat food so this is Flounder saying CIAO and HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone from Medellin Colombia
