Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. I made this stained glass turkey probably thirty years ago, and each year it hangs in the front window. Thanksgiving this year was held at my Cousin Brian's home, and it was a relaxing, wonderful, delicious day. On Friday after a day of quilting, I headed to my Cousin Linda's home for her annual party before the annual Beverly Tree Lighting ceremony on the common. The high school chorus performed and then three or four police cars with sirens and flashing lights escorted a fire truck carrying a very special guest. Yes, it was Santa Claus!!! Honestly, I don't know how he is able to fit so many appearances into his incredibly busy schedule.
The rest of the weekend was spent quilting with friends. This morning as I headed to early Mass, what should appear but this rafter of turkeys crossing the road in front of me, and they were taking their very sweet time doing it. It's a good thing I had left early.
It gave me a laugh, and it certainly was an appropriate ending to a fun Thanksgiving weekend.
