Happy Thanksgiving!

November 23, 2017
Trophy close up- note Elissa clutching glory.

Who wouldn’t want this?

I’ll fill you in on the great Tunno Pumpkin Pie competition which is at Bernie and Donna’s house this year. We’ll see who goes home with the coveted trophy.

Enjoy your day with family and friends. If things get sticky, just remember, politicians come and go, but family is with you through thick and thin — if you’re lucky — for a lifetime.  So, celebrate the things you DO have in common – like an addiction to corn casserole.

And Happy Black Friday too! I know my Zazzle website, GettaSommaDis,  has some pretty great deals on Black Friday, so take advantage of the sales! You know you need some Italian Curse Word Wine Charms.

Topper and I send our best wishes for a very Happy Thanksgiving!

      I think Topper ate a little too much on Thanksgiving night with people dropping bits of food here and there, as he left me a nice gift in the morning. I was not happy. And unfortunately, he did not say which he liked better!

      I believe that configuration was done by my oldest brother, Bernie — the man’s an artistic genius. Thanks so much Linda, it was great finally catching up!

    That trophy sure looks tempting. Am I too old to learn how to bake a pumpkin pie? Hmmm! I know I’m a pretty good tester. 🙂 I hope your Thanksgiving weekend is a joyous one, as we welcome in the holiday season. Enjoy!

      Thanks Bob, and no, I don’t think you’re too old. You’re never too old for anything! Just fly to Pennsylvania and you can be the official judge!
