We’re Doing it Wrong

old gold Long before turkey was famous for Thanksgiving, there was tobacco.

Peaceful, relaxing tobacco.

So, while you’re out getting your Turkey Day supplies, don’t forget a couple of cartons of cigarettes.  They’re a “treat you can trust.”

And our forefathers would have wanted it that way. Besides, maybe Crazy Uncle Fred will stay outside.

On a more personal note:

I’d like to direct your attention to the right hand side of the blog.  Our friends over at Tails and Tales have found out that one of their beloved greyhounds, Blueberry, has cancer. 

This little lump…

Blueberry Lump, Morgan Birthday Party 007

led to this.

Blueberry After Surgery 005

They are gearing up for further treatment and would appreciate any help possible. If you click on Blueberry’s picture, you can read the whole story.

I realize that times are hard, and the holidays are near, but a buck or two won’t hurt most of us.

Thanks.

We are all wooing very hard for sweet Blueberry. We have had way too much experience here with the cancer so we really want Blueberry to fight it.

We don't get here often enough - we do thank you for your many thoughtful comments on our blog.
