Yesterday, I came upon this on the fridge "to do" whiteboard:

I guess Chaco felt he needed to put it up there in case I forgot or something. (Note: I added the hatchet as it was missing and I felt that step was important).

Of course, it's not about the turkey, not really. It bothers me when people refer to Thanksgiving as "turkey day". I just want to grab them by the lapels and shout, "It's not about the turkey, you ingrate!", but I don't.

Either way, I am thankful for the turkey who gave its life and is now roasting away in the oven.

But I am most sincerely grateful for friends I've met through this blog. Really, just know that I would gladly take a bullet for any one of you.... but maybe not in the head, but in like an arm or leg or something.



  1. Love the sense of humor your family shares! :-)

    I am honored that you would take a bullet for me... even if it were just in the arm or leg or something.

    Not sure I can make the same promise. Bullets are known to be painful! I'd experience some pain for you though... like... I'd get a flu shot for you! :-)

  2. Aw, I'm thankful for you, too! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! Gobble Gobble!!!

  3. Hope the turkey turned out tasty and hatchet-free!


  4. I see another budding artist in the works. I hope the turkey lived up to its expectations. You are correct - Thanksgiving is about giving thanks, regardless if there is a turkey or not.

    I'd take a shot (of Tequilla) for the rest of you.

  5. Ahhhh...I feel the love. :)

    Here's to bloggy friends! (insert your favorite toasting beverage here)

    Good fridge pic. I might steal the idea for next year. It should be a real hit with my "sometimes" vegetarian daughter. It might turn her into a complete vegetarian.

  6. I've been enjoying your blog for a while now, Abby, but this particular post really stood out for me. I don't know why. Well, it was probably the addition of the hatchet. Funny and clever.

  7. "It's not about the turkey, you ingrate!"

    HAHAHAHA, awesome. For what it's worth, I've been as-good-as vegetarian for over 15 years and I love Chaco's picture!
