Happy Thanksgiving!

We are expecting family and friends over the weekend, and so wanted to wish all of you a very Happy Thankgsgiving.
I pieced together a Turkey Platter Dad had purchased during one of his antique forays in his final years; one that resulted in many a purchase near our home in Naperville/Wheaton Illinois area where we lived right after we got married. It was a nice Turkey Platter. And he wrote a little ditty to go along with it, which I placed on the platter today for this photo.

I was thinking of Dad again as I purchased some birdseed today; oily sunflower seeds. In my head I heard his annual "soooo do you have your winter bird feeding program established?" And I did just that.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
