Canine Pilgrims

“Uh-oh,” Bernie says, “we’re out of propane, and Thanksgiving’s coming up.” What propane is exactly, you tell me. All I know is that it comes in a small tank that usually goes empty in the middle of grilling something interesting, like steaks or kebabs. Don’t know if I’ve mentioned kebabs before, but no time to go into it now, because we’re on our way to the propane place.

Bernie’s in a good mood. Loves Thanksgiving. “There were two dogs on the Mayflower,” he says. I like flowers, but don’t know any of the names. “A mastiff and a spaniel.” Dogs on flowers? All I know is that can be a no-no in certain gardens, old man Heydrich’s, for example.

    Going to the farm for thanksgiving myself. That's in Illinois – a really long car ride from Georgia. Anyway, the important part is that there will be swimming, goose chasing and tug-of-war with buster. Oh and Dad's Mom and Aunt Pat will give me great big gobs of turkey. Love thanksgiving. Mom wants to know if Bernie is going to fry a turkey.

    Hmmm I think my crystal ball reveals a deepfried turkey in Chet's future. That's the only common link between Thanksgiving and propane unless Bernie is planning a desert campout w-fancy eats over the 4-day weekend (thereby avoiding Black Friday, such avoidance deeply and fervently desired by many of us). Am I right, Bernie???

    Hey Gus and Wally here, we be the awesome pawsome pair who can totally run all by our amazing Russell-selves Miss Jan's sodden but perfectly fenced sanctuary for some truly naughty horses some tall and some small which She won't let us chase, dang we hate that part. Anyways. She cooks FOR US at Thanksgiving too and doesn't forget we two her loyal helpers even with an overflowing housefull of two-legged ones some of whom like us and then there are thosee others who don't so we just spray them with white dog fur when we pass them in the hall. Anyways. She gives us chopped turkey no skin, mixed with cooked organic brown rice and chopped squash and green beans and celery and some cooked unsweetened cranberries (yum) and ladled with pure turkey broth no onions pleeze and no shrooms either with a scoop of organic plain canned pumpkin right on top. Oh! We LOOOOVE Thanksgiving! And we do NOT share with the horses!

    Hey Chet, did Bernie say what the two dogs on the Mayflower were called? Or whose dogs they were?

    Did the dogs get here okay?

    Tell Bernie we want to know more!

    Gus, Wally, Yummmm! Leave the porch light on at Thanksgiving. Abby and I will be right over. 🙂 We'll groom the horses, tall and small, in trade for TG grub. Love it.

    Chet, Jenifer…we are interested in the outcome of the fried turkey, for sure.
