happy thanksgiving

thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I have lots of happy family memories.I have an uncle who friggin loves turkey. one year when my aunt and uncle were living close to us and joining us for thanksgiving,we called over to their house and told him that the turkey had fallen on the floor and was ruined. we went on to tell him that we had to throw it away. about ten minutes later he beelined into our kitchen and began to dig through the trash to see if he could salvage any of the ruined turkey. this uncle is also a turkey snob. he thinks only butterball turkeys are fit to be eaten. we tricked him by feeding him a publix brand turkey that he raved about until we told him that it wasn't a butterball. he accused us of feeding him a hall brothers turkey.hall brothers was a five and dime store in pennsylvania where they grew up.
I don't just love thanksgiving for the jokes we have shared. I love it because we all got together and enjoyed each others company and shared love and happiness.I miss that. now we have our own small thanksgiving with only a little family. most years thanksgiving happens at the hospital where I work and that's ok. I am thankful for my job so it's not so bad.
this post is kind of mushy and not my usual weird ass sense of humor but I just wanted to send out my thankful vibe for my family and friends and even my job. it feels good to let that out into the ether.
