My Thanksgiving was just perfect, even as we missed my son and his family who live in Littleton, CO and my granddaughter and her family with all five adorable great-grand children who were with another set of grandparents! 
We had a nice full table of family, the turkey tuned out to be a perfectly deep brown and all the fixin's tasted yummy. We had great conversation, including all the forbidden topics. Just the kind of gathering I like around me. Everyone pitched in and made the day perfect. I like help in the kitchen and each one in the family knows how to help and not get in each other's way. My tiny little kitchen has served many a meal over the years.

Melinda, I am sorry I could not remember that you led us to that delightful photo of thanksgiving bird and cat! I laugh every time I think about it. Thanksgiving morning with the Turkey squabble just a couple of blocks from my home made us all laugh. Those creatures have become truly pets. 

Steph, thanks for the assist. 
Lillie, your story of the whooping cranes following their light weight flying machine master gives me goose bumps. Imagine the thrill is seeing that flight through. I hope there will be follow-up stories on this particular flock. 

Tony, your photos of birds and their diverse plumage reassures me of the great powers of evolutionary forces.

I went birding this morning - not shopping with the crazies.

I love the Puffbird Tony.

Thank you.

Oh that picture Joan was from Melinda - she posted it in Hang with Friends.

Five Whoopers are flying into St. Marks Wildlife Refuge south of Tallahassee tomorrow to over winter and are being led by their light weight flying machine master.  This will be the first time Whoopers will be over wintering at this refuge which will be exciting for bird watchers in the area.

The turkey is in the oven and smells so good, all stuffed with dressing filled with lots of herbs I picked this morning. I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends, that you have delicious food, stimulating conversations ... not just the weather or sports or work, but real rip-roaring invigorating discussions. I am send this picture you have all seen, but I just love it. 

WHEN IS DINNER?!!!

Forgive me, I forgot who sent this, and it delights me. Thanks to whoever sent it. I usually keep the name of the sender with their photos, but not this time.
