Cannot Never Could and Critters


Can't Never Could
a southern saying 
If you think you can't, you won't.
If you think you can, you will.



Good morning, I hope you all survived your Thanksgiving celebrations and that we still have live Turkeys roaming our beautiful earth somewhere. Seriously though they say 46 million turkeys are eaten on Thanksgiving, 22 million on Christmas, and 19 million on Easter. In 2011, 736 millions pounds of turkey were consumed in the United States. Interestingly, since 1970 turkey production in the United States increased nearly 110%.


Thankful that the ice hasn't frozen our lakes yet!

In every man's heart there is anchored a little schooner.
Henry Miller




Although, there still are many Turkeys still on the fence about this holiday, known as Thanksgiving.

The superior Turkey understands what is right and delicious for all.



Here's an interesting fact you may have missed, the turkey was domesticated in Mexico and brought to Europe in the 16th century. Also turkeys lived almost ten million years ago. All facts from University of Illinois Extension. 



I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts. John Steinbeck





Eat the present moment and break the dish. Egyptian Proverb



Very little is needed to make a happy life. It is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.  Marcus Aurelius 
Oddly enough, Scarecrows have always brightened my world. 

Also curious mysteries. Like footprints.

Especially Elf footprints.



Everyday, you leave a footprint. Ernest Agyemang Yeboah


Education without inspiration is only a recipe for desperation. 
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah


Lemons are a healthy fruit, ask anyone slurping on one!


Enthusiasm is not contrary to reason. It is reason-on fire!
Peter Marshall



Real silence, is silence without words, silence that speaks words in silence and silence that talks better than words. 



If cats could talk, they wouldn't. But dogs would pour out their life stories and then ask you to play fetch. 

On the street where you are-


If a street has a spirit, no matter how narrow it is, we can breathe comfortably over there. Mehmet Murat ildan



It isn't so much what's on the table that matters, as what's on the chairs. W. S. Gilbert


Always remember, "Adventure" is just bad planning. Roald Amundsen


So what adventures do you have going on right this minute?
Thanks for stopping by.
Take good care of you.

We are indeed nuts - only the variety varies.
Yet another delightful post. Thank you.

Hello,

Sometimes I may be nuts! I love your sweet dogs. I love playing fetch with the granddogs. I am sure they wanted some turkey. I think you can be happy with very little. The elf on the shelf has made an appearance. Sorry I am late commenting. Thanks for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!

Great photos, and I loved the quotes! As a caretaker of a dog and two cats (note I did not say owner, most days I am their servant!), the quote about them talking is the best!
Have a great week!

Lea said...

And I saw some wild turkeys here (north MS) just a day or two after Thanksgiving. Long live the Wild Turkey!

Jenny Woolf said...

That looks like a lovely dinner. And I love the quote from Gilbert! I can't believe the picture with the lemon, surely it must be an orange, nobody could look that cheerful sucking a lemon?!!!!
