Happy Thanksgiving

We don’t have Thanksgiving here, as you probably know. However, over half my readers and followers are from America, and many of those are blogging friends who are very dear to me.

So I am sending you this, for your special day tomorrow.

Eat too much, drink too much, but try not to argue with your family.
Life is short, and you never know if you will be here for the next Thanksgiving.

Best wishes to all of you in the USA. Pete.

  1. Thanks, Pete. I hope it is a nice one for everyone. I hope mine is quiet and uneventful, the past years have been huge affairs, complete with too much work. Now it is time to let the young’uns to take over the hard work.

    1. We say that every year, about Christmas. But the old people are still expected to lay on the spread and do the work, at least in ‘my world’. Enjoy your peaceful thanksgiving my friend.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Hi, Pete!

    Just a note to say I’m really enjoying your Marjorie series. This is the first one I’ve kept up with — I don’t read my emails every day. I can’t wait to see if her stepfather pays the ransom and what happens to the fumblers who kidnapped her. She’s a feisty one, isn’t she — and hungry!

    Even though it’s not “your” holiday, I’m wishing you a fine day. Be safe and happy. Tell someone — Ollie, maybe? — you love them.

    1. Hi Mona,
      Thanks for those kind words and wishes. I am very happy that you are enjoying the Marjorie serial. It’s my attempt at writing about some female characters from a different perspective.
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. It’s an American tradition. Prior to Thanksgiving, in an official ceremony on the White House lawn, the president pardons a Thanksgiving turkey and its alternate. This year, the turkeys were named Peas and Carrots. Last year’s turkeys were Drumstick and Wishbone. You can Google the various feature articles online. There was even an article in The Guardian. My comment had to do with the fact that Peas and Carrots are not veggies. They’re turkeys.

  3. HI PETE:

    I’m English and I love this holiday. Anyway I thought your readers would enjoy this test I took in preparation for our conversations around the dinner table. It measures political bias. I scored highly on being unbiased and knew most of the empirical facts – but I’m according to Republicans what’s known as a flaming liberal and a socialist. Anyway Republicans I’m giving thanks we got the House. How’s that for being unbiased!

      1. If you read the explanation about what the score means, 70% is pretty awful πŸ˜€ .It means you answer questions based on political bias rather than facts “Hence test-takers who are systematically wrong on questions where the true answer does not support their political views, and otherwise right, are given a high bias score.” 🀣.

        1. That’s fine by me, FR. I have a life-long political bias, and I’m proud of it. If the score shows that, then I am still on the right track! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I could have selected the ‘politically correct’ answers to get a lower score, but went with what I know I would really say.
          Best wishes, Pete.
