Giving Thanks!

Hello to my bloggy friends and family! I am overexposed in this photo to wish you all a happy thanksgiving. This year I am thankful for my ticker that takes a licking and keeps on ticking. For my brudder and sister who protect me from harm, usually from myself. And for my apes who think I'm the bee's knees even when I'm stubborn and get up at 3 a.m. and even when I need my ma ape to sleep on the floor with me during the thunderstorms. I am also grateful for all of my friends who leave me wonderful comments (and especially my girlfriends and my bromances) even when I'm lazy and can't get around to visiting everyone. And I am also grateful for a new Thanksgiving tradition we started this year...

Lambs and yams! My ma ape has been meaning to get me something special-like for the holidays and this year she got me A LAMB LEG!

Look at Oscar! He's squinching his eyes so he can open them up and be sure he's not dreaming.

Here's a perspective photo so you can see how big the leg is (or, conversely, how short I am). Ma ape, I think the leg goes the other way round.

Here it is cut up and in our dinner bowls--lambs and yams!

Yup--that's the Wally bowl! With my lamb prepared just how I like it--RAW!

Ethel enjoyed hers.

Oscar is ecstatic.
I could have nommed all day on that leg!

And this is what apes eat:

It is tofurkey and mushroom gravies and stuffings and yamnapples and brussels sprouts. And also champagne from Washington state which is also where my ma ape found me.

I hope everyone had a thanksgiving as wonderful as mine.

Wishing you and yours the most blessed of days as we break bread with friends and family or spend our time as a volunteer with any one of the numerous charities in need of our time and talents.

Peace, plenty, prosperity - my wish for the United States of America.

Wally, when you say overexposed you usually meant something entirely different!

That leg was almost bigger than you! I can't believe you had to share it with the sibs. That was incredibly generous of you, Wally. Now digest quickly, because Sunday is the Grey Cup!

Long time no see! It's me Miss Sunshade, I don't know if you remember me because my mum hogged the computer for like 2 years or so... But I certainly remember you, and boy you look as hunky and handsome and healthy as I'd remembered!

You really look great (and I read you could be 14!!). It must be all the LOVE, BLOGGING, and RAWWWW EATABLES and BONEABLES and VEGETABLES and S'CREAMABLES!!

I also see that you got a new brother who looks a lot like Etheyl. He looks like a pretty handsome stud (does he still have his lovelies?), but of course, you are the true hunky stud.

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Wow Wally! You and the peppy sheppys are some lucky pups! Your ma ape obviously loves you if she will feed you lamb legs while she is eating tofurkey! Looks like a happy day for everyone and we here at the Mooselodge are thankful your ticker keeps on keepin' on! I bet it is directly related to the lamb legs!
