I can remember on Thanksgiving, I was maybe in the 4th or 5th grade and just moved to a new town and a new school. I usually went to several different schools a year. So I was nervous when our teacher gave us an art project and I was thinking I don't know what they have been doing here. After I finished my drawing, I can remember it to this day. The drawing, with crayons I might add, was of corn stalks staked up in the cones as you see them in the pictures with a child and dog playing around it. I do not remember if it was from my head or a picture. I can't remember everything can I?
The teacher came over to me and looked at my picture and said come with me. Now you can imagine how I felt, I thought going to the principals office already or even worse kicked out of school and I loved school. She took me into the scary room-THE TEACHERS LOUNGE !!!!! To my relief she just wanted to show off what I had drawn and then we did go to the principals office but for praise. WHEW !!!!!! I will never forget that the rest of my life. What happened to the picture-- only the picture angel knows that.
Now Thanksgiving always to me is a gathering with no pressures and lots of pies. I hope you did read about last Thanksgiving's story. It was a story. We do have so much to be thankful for and yes "things happen" but hey that is life and I do believe we just get stronger because of that. I just can't imagine the Pilgrims and the Indians years ago eating together it could almost be a tough dried turkey but hey it was the togetherness I do believe that mattered.
I went on line and found these little pictures of Thanksgiving at a free vintage site, tried to down load their button but it didn't want to play with me. I will keep trying though.
There you go. I just didn't want to leave Thanksgiving out, I mean hey I might not get any pumpkin pie.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.
