Second grade….whole classroom turned into the pilgrims feast Charlie Brown style. We sat on the floor in the middle of the room (desks were pushed off to the sides and one long cloth spread out on the floor and we sat on either side of it having our Thanksgiving of finger foods (pretty much the same menu my gypsy mom would serve for the holiday feast) lol…it’s funny ’cause it’s true.
Another Thanksgiving we had to learn a song which I had to sing for my whole family at my Nona’s house and I’m pretty sure I taught it to my sister so she could sing it with me! I have since taught it to my kids and my daughter, Rainy, remembers it still! Here’s the song in case you might want to sing along…
Turkey Dinner, turkey dinner,
Gather round, gather round,
Who will get the drumstick?
Yummy, yummy drumstick,
All sit down, all sit down.
Cornbread muffins, chestnut stuffing,
Puddin’ pie, ten foot high,
All of us were thinner
‘Till we had our dinner;
Me oh my! Me oh my!
Another Thanksgiving turned into a great big food fight with everything from turkey and dressing to the pumpkin pie and whipped cream hitting the walls, the ceiling, and each other until we all collapsed exhausted into a pile of laughter stomachs aching not from eating too much but from laughing too hard! Clean up took a while and there was little for left overs. I don’t remember what started the food fight but I remember the laughter well.
Another Thanksgiving turned into a huge heated debate on Facebook when I mentioned I would like to find and prepare a Tufurkey…for myself, I would still have regular turkey for my family…the non-vegetarians lol. Oh my gosh! What a debacle that was! People were actually arguing about it as I just sat there and watched! For like two days! Lol. Strange. I mean one person’s turkey is another person’s tufurkey, right?
Enough tripping down memory lane for now my friends. Sparky will be home soon and there’s lots of errands including the library! Yay!! So have a groovy day and meet me back here tomorrow!! Much peace Love art!
