SHOULD HAVE USED FLOUR…

SHOULD HAVE USED FLOUR…

 

Not bad for a simple Thanksgiving,

We had enough to eat…

I totally forgot the stuffing

To make the meal complete.

We had roasted rib eye and veggies

Done in a roasting bag….

I should have added some water,

For delicious gravy to snag.

We worked together on two apple pies,

One had added pineapple…

If I’d added flour to the apple mix

It might have the juices tackled.

We prayed before we ate,

She let me do it this time…

Praising God for blessings

And keeping us in our prime.

But all-in-all, it was a good meal

With a “no thank you” helping of onion…

I like onion’s flavor appeal,

But eat a whole one–lick a bunion!  🙂

HOW SILENTLY, HOW SILENTLY

HOW SILENTLY, HOW SILENTLY

 

The office folks all gone,

Production will end in the morning (?)…

Security will be all by itself

In case of an alarm warning.

We’ll eat Thanksgiving dinner

Before our shifts or after…

For then we’ll have our family time,

Warm times filled with laughter.

For most, a long weekend,

Will follow Thanksgiving Day…

A few of us watch

To keep the bogies away.
