Thanksgiving…urm…tradition November 24, 2016

I’m going to try to lighten up, and at least act like I’m feeling better.  (Even if I’m not.)

So I’m going to give my personal hat tip to one of my favorite websites, that always makes Thanksgiving more memorable.  That website, of course, is Cake Wrecks.  Because somehow, one of the things that can lift my spirits is a really ineptly decorated cake.

And every year at this time, Cake Wrecks posts bakeries’ attempts to create turkey cakes.  But, since they always use brown icing, the head and neck of the turkey usually come out looking like poo.  But sometimes they make it extra special, and they give us –

The traditional thanksgiving poo-wang.  Please visit Cake Wrecks today for a splendid selection of these.

Well, a couple of days ago, I was at a Giant Food supermarket near my office, and I decided to check out the bakery, and was not disappointed.

While not as spectacular as the ones on Cake Wrecks, I certainly got a smile out of what I found, so I snapped a couple of photos of the good ones.


Like winky here.



Or this.  I’m not sure what is happening here.  I like the Cookie Monster eyes, but I’m having trouble figuring out what is going on with the beak.  It seems to be dribbling down his chin.

Hope everybody ate pie today!

This was a letter to the editor in The Washington Post on Thanksgiving Day:

As a pastor’s wife, I have observed Christians of every stripe for more than 60 years. The Post’s Nov. 19 article “Emphasizing the ‘giving’ in ‘Thanksgiving,’ ” [Metro], about members of the Washington Ethical Society giving to others, confirmed one of my basic convictions: “Don’t tell me what you believe or what you don’t believe; show me how you live.

Dorothy Harrison, Frederick


This Holiday, I’m thankful that most people in the world are decent human beings.  And that the noisy pushers of religious extremism have not managed to undermine their basic humanity and compassion.  Thank you Dorothy for this reminder.
