what does Thanksgiving mean?

Thanksgiving means, for me these last 11-12 years, firing the kiln and making piggy banks so that I can try to shake loose some bucks from shoppers in the coming days so that we can buy peanut butter and cat food all winter. Such is the life of the small box retailer!

Dreamt of my pal Gordo and his family last night. They had us over for beers, and as usual, Gord's two sons are charming hosts. And the dream hamster? he hasn't sprouted wings but he sort of stretched out like a flying squirrel to fly around in little swoops...

Hi there,

Happy Turkeyless day to you and yours!

I will look through your stuff while I am off......and put together an order. My fam and friends would love your tea-pots and we can't have your cats starving!

Cheers!

Happy Thankful and Giving Day!

Curiousity hit me ath 3:00 a.m. this morning, when I made a little trip around the house and viewed the extremely thick fog out the window.

What will Gary and the Missus have for their Vegan Thanksgiving Day?

Would you share with us your menu? I'm really curious.

Oh, and I dreamt y'all came down and I had a hard time cooking for y'all. We had several meals of grilled veggies and veggie kabobs. :-)
