Even though Thanksgiving is now a memory, I am still thankful for the turkeys that gave of themselves so that my family and I could have a superb meal. It wouldn't be a holiday without them!

I just love the Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post @ WordPress.com. I look forward to the new challenge when it is posted on Friday. This week the challenge is GREEN! My interpretation comes from a trip I shared with my husband to Niagara Falls. The breathtaking views of the falls from Niagara Falls State Park

I thought I would try my hand at this game, using the theme of Veteran’s Day to invent new words to honor all the men and woman who have served our country. Here are a few words I have created …
Uvetidid - (you-vet-I-did) n.
Table Geometry found in a weekend excursion. The make-up of the table and the grids on the benches are showered with geometric shapes. Even the bricks on the walk are bursting with geometry.

I was born on Halloween
when witches pay their due.
Everyone thinks I’m so mean,
but what am I to do?
My mother named me Hazel,
and makes me ride a broom.
She feeds me brew with basil,
and locks me in my room.
My nose is long and crooked.
My pet cat, Boo is black.
They say that I am wicked.
When I am dead,
I hope the words etched
Above my head
Describe how I inspired others.
When they reminisce,
let it be with love
I wish to have left wisdom
in my living.
When stories are told of my antics
may I be painted the heroine.
Let them say with a hearty laugh
that I made them smile.
I pray that when I am gone,
Spooky Pumpkins for Halloween
Scary faces evil and mean
Carved with malice and marked with fear
A creepy tradition year after year

It is almost time for the big day.
There are last-minute errands and phone calls to make.
Nerves are strung tight and frayed.
Excitement is building.
By this time next week, it will all be a memory.
I want to cry every time I think about him.
I remember cuddling, story books, and dinnertime.
Now, he is all grown up and independent.
Don't mess with Grandmother's sewing scissors! These are sacred and may not be used for anything but sewing. If you touch them, you will be electrocuted or worse. These are MINE!
