Happy Turkey Giving Thanks Day

 A most Happy Thanksgiving Day to you all!

When I hear or see the word Thanks

it brings a flood of memories to my mind.

Especially those happy memories that will never wear out.

The things you are passionate about are not random,
they are your calling.
Fabienne Fredrickson 

Have no fear Mr. Turkey you've been spared! You can jump off that fence post!

"Remember that fear is just a trick being played on you by the ego."

Fabienne Fredrickson

You'll never be great at everything but trying is the best way to getting there.

Run Turkeys run it's only a toy in the lead.

Hello sweet Mr. Turkey.

Gobble, gobble, gobble about 153 miles from Charleston by car.

Nice try, Mr. Big Blue Rooster, but you'll never be a Turkey!

"Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it."

The day that you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit.

"The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom."


"Experience life in all possible ways,
good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, 
summer-winter. Experience all the dualities.
Don't be afraid of experience, because 
the more experience you have, the more. 
mature you become.

"Always remember to judge everything by your inner feelings of bliss."

Take good care of you.

Keep Trying New Ways

Oh, the things you can do with an old ironing board and watering bucket.

"Throw yourself some life challenge; Be so focused, you don't even see yourself coming."

Chinonye J. Chidolue

"Seasons of Life" artist Sue Kalicki

Creativity is just about connecting things. A whole lot of nonsense put together, and diluted with a creative passion can eventually make sense. Keep thinking. Exploring. Keep trying out new ways and methods of doing things and just when you least expect, you may stumble on that next great world-changing idea that will make all the difference."

Put your pretty party dress on and go dancing! Or in this case hiking!

"They will turn you over, toss you about, fob you off, take you less seriously, because to get there, you must walk on your own feet."

Chinonye J. Chidolue

"An idea is only an idea until you breathe life into it."

"The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn't being said. The art of reading between the lines is a lifelong quest of the wise."

Shannon L. Alder

Notice those tiny hints in your daily haunts. Someone somewhere was thinking of you.

"You don't have to say everything to be a light. Sometimes a fire built on a hill will bring interested people to your campfire."

Shannon L. Alder

They are the ones worth keeping closest to you. 

Don't say I wish I would have pursued my talents and gifts.

Do Them. Now.

Thanks for stopping by and gifting me with your comments.

Take good care of you.

Bench and Critter Sharing

I must share this delightful photo of my grand-daughter's pup Athena and know this is just one of the many funny moments Lyra had dressing up her pup. (Yes, Athena was being very patient with her human.)

"Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth."


Welcome to


and I'm also posting to City Daily Photo

 Is there space for me on your bench too?

The More We Share 

The More We Have.

There's something quite enticing about noticing bubbles around young Bullseye sitting alone on a bench. Caring is sharing. 

"Positivity is the father of reinvention."

Josh Stern

"You don't meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason."


As with most animals, they are always ready to let you inside their circle of friendship. Especially if you bring a throw toy!

"People who love animals are my favorite kind of people."

"Animals are innocent.

To have their trust is an honor."

Cassandra Clare


"You don't think your way into a new kind of living.

 You live your way into a new kind of thinking." 

Henry Nouwen


"You transform all who are touched by you. Mundane concerns, troubles, and sorrows dissolve in your presence, bringing joy."
