Mr. Gobbles

So do you have all your Thanksgiving prepartions done? No, me neither. I have several dishes I still need to work on and while the spirit is willing right now the flesh is weak and tired. Instead I thought I'd sit down and share my newest Thanksgiving decoration --Mr. Gobbles!



Isn't he adorable? He was a gift from my friend Lois in Nebraska and she has really outdone herself this time. Mr. Gobbles (that's what I named him) stands about 10" tall and is about 10" wide - great proportions, similar to my body type but lets not go into that now. He is going to look wonderful as my centerpiece tomorrow.

Along with Mr. Gobbles Lois sent a cute card with the following verse:

Hip Hip Hooray for Turkey Day

May your stuffing be tasty
And your turkey plump.

May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.

May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize.

But most of all my dear friend
May your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off of your thighs!

A sentiment we can all embrace.... Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone! And now I'm trudging back to the kitchen.
