Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody!

Rick Torres crouched under a strip of tape, came toward us, shook hands with Bernie. “Hey, Chet,” he said, and gave me a pat. “Lookin’ good. Is he still growing, Bernie?”

“Hardly seems possible,” Bernie said. “This is my son Charlie. Shake hands with Sergeant Torres, Charlie.”

Rick held out his hand. Charlie gazed down at the ground.

“I won’t bite,” Rick said. Of course he wouldn’t! Hardly any humans did, their little teeth not being much of a weapon. I did remember a perp named Clancy Green chomping on some other perp’s arm, but that was on a Halloween night, the only holiday I don’t like – Halloween brings out the worst in people, Bernie says. Thanksgiving is my favorite, except for that one time with the drumstick incident, maybe a story for another day.

    Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving to all the Plunderers.

    Queen B I would like to hear the drumstick incident also.
    We are constantly being teased by Our Favorite Author. Sometimes the incident referred to is one we have heard about and sometimes it is a figment of HIS imagination that we will never ever learn about. Sometimes it is a little frustrating but it is always funny.

    Woo hoo! Plunder and turkey on. Forgot to mention earlier we loved today’s illustration. We think TFAT is one of our favorite C&B books.
    One of our favorite of the 13 or so!

    I can envision the drumstick incident pretty easily.

    Let me tell you a raven story that happened Monday. I had not had breakfast or lunch and had worked hard so at 3:00 I swung through a fast food place and picked up a meal. I was in an enormous parking lot and so I pulled into a vacant area to eat in my heated car. I noticed a single raven nearby so I rolled down my window and tossed out a couple of french fries. All of the sudden ravens swooped in out of nowhere and I was tossing out fries right and left at a dozen ravens. Then I was shredding chicken tenders and tossing them out. I never figured out the pecking order but some ravens definitely got more than their fair share while others seemed to do without. I probably shared a good 3/4 of my meal.

    It is a day to definitely count blessings and to share bounty if you can.

    Burp! We all packed in the Bridge’s station wagon today and went to Rio and Friend and Mother’s place for Thanksgiving. Once we finally convinced Rio to share, it was delish!

    Happy Thanksgiving to the Plunderers!
