Thanksgiving nostalgia – Have a Happy!

Here’s wishing everyone a warm, happy and healthy holiday close to those they love.  To help celebrate enjoy a few of the sights and sounds of yesteryear.  But first, a few “Mays”…

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
