A Catty Thanksgiving Day Wish


Mabel and I wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.

Betty will be on the move the next couple of days and I may not make it around to your individual blogs. Sonny Boy, the college student, called a couple of weeks ago to tell me he would not be able to come home for Thanksgiving because of school/work.

What's a mother to do?

Well, after I stopped shrieking like an injured monkey, I decided to pack up HOB, Evan and a pumpkin pie and drive up to be with the boy. He needs to be with his mother on Thanksgiving. (OK, OK, it's really the other way around, but still....) I am looking forward to being with him and his sweet, sweet girlfriend too.

I wish ALL my blogging buddies a Happy Thanksgiving.

You will be on my long list of things for which to be thankful.

And remember, take that all-important nap after your dinner.

It's how Mabel keeps her beautiful figure.

We're playing host to 14 this year. My day is in a bit of a shambles right now. (needed my 'Bossy Betty' fix, though) This afternoon will be better.

Happy Wednesday!

PS...Some days I feel like Mabel!

That cat is identical to my sister's cat--which is both a good and bad thing. Looks like she has already sampled Thanksgiving dinner. I hope yours turns out even better.

Sigh, my daughter won't be home for Thanksgiving but she's in Colorado and I'm in Pennsylvania so there's no hopping in the car to see her.
