apres the déluge




seriously
 herself hasnt stopped eating
 since 
her friend Mary
 got here
 and
 they went to lunch 

then this morning
 she unpacked all these containers
 put
 lots of good smelling stuff into other containers
 into the oven
 oh boy
 did that ever smell good

she put some stuff
 in the microwave 
I got chased out of the kitchen
 lots

 the smells of that food cooking
was
yum

then
herself got a little upset
 she didnt have anything
 to put that turkey in 
no
 one
 else
 seemed to care

Harry and me
 we kept close
 to the table
 never saw such neat eaters
 not a morsel dropped
 no one offered us anything
the SILESQ said she never had such good turkey 
herself said this year she didnt have a melt down
himself thought it was all good


 they all said they were stuffed

I dont understand that
 stuffed

maybe
 if they'd shared
 with Harry and me 

wait

now
 the 
SILESQ says 
she's going to leave soon
so
 she offers pie



Harry said he just cant watch


cause
she said she's going to 
explode!




thank you, Hilary!

  4. Oh, yes, I can understand Harry...awful to see someone explode.
    Daryl, I'm glad you got through without a meltdown. I think I had yours this year. Exhausted and weepy last night. Am now the only passenger on the ship while everyone else is seeing Vienna.
    However, I did fall in love. Gorgeous Austrian village called Durnstein, on the side of a mountain with a ruined castle above and the Danube below. I was out for more than an hour of oohing and ahhing. And walking on cobblestones... no wonder I was overtired.
    Dick will bring back beautiful photos of Vienna. If one of our options had been to hear the Vienna Boys' Choir, I'd have dragged myself to it, but nothing else is tempting enough.

  5. The first photo is just perfect with the light and shadow. Wish I were there to help you devour that scrumptious looking meal.

  10. Ha!!!! And like Robin, here it is at 9:30 and I haven't been able to ingest anything but coffee. Sounds like a great holiday.

  11. Ha, ha, that's one of your (or your cats') best posts. I will stuff myself on Sunday, since like I said, Thanksgiving isn't a holiday here, so I do it on the weekend when it's easier for friends to come....I can smell it already...

  20. Whenever there's eating and an animal in the room it sits by me. Animals are smart and they know who the clumsiest person is--the person most likely to drop something.

    We were cleaning up the table at T.'s turned our back, the tabby was on the island with the turkey..T. batted him off with a wooden spoon.. kerwack!
