Happy Thanksgiving to you too, but can I suggest you leave out the mention of downvotes and spam. This tends to attract dvs which could spoil your post. Be positive, no need to apologise. Best to you!

Thanks, you too! This year, we have two vegetarian families at our house, so we’re serving a pumpkin filled with rice instead of turkey this year! We’re currently baking two pumpkin pies, as we’re having five families over tomorrow.

Best wishes,

Lucy

Love your name, takes me back to black and white television with Lucy the dizzy blonde and Desi the voice of reason - I suspect that I'm one of the few on Duo who saw it first time around.

Yes, Happy Thanksgiving to you too.

Small point: did you ever hear the expression "Speak of the devil"? More fully, it's "Speak of the Devil and he will appear." The same applies to downvotes. (And please, all those who might happen to be so inclined, I do realise that it actually takes more than just mentioning his name - but I don't think too many users light black candles in the forums...)

Speaking of the devil, here I am!

I figure we are all on a good/bad continuum, and we slide up and down every day. Some a little, some a lot. But without downvots, how would we know how good we have it here. Happy Thanksgiving to you Tembo and all gentle readers here, even the downvots. One day they will emerge from their shadow and leave that behind and choose to slide up the scale.

Thanks to the Native Americans.

They gave food to starving people. Those people expressed their thanks by going on to steal their food caches then their land. Now they go to Indian casinos who regain some of the stolen wealth. Story to be continued...

But I will say this for Thanksgiving today. When family and friends get together, no crazy gift giving, just good conversations and happy to be together. Well, for some families at least...And for those with crazy families, I hope they find good people to share dinner and good time. And the people I admire the most are the ones who forego the celebrations and drive around with food and money for all the people living on the streets. I give the most thanks to know there are still compassionate people in this world that makes it all worthwhile.

Happy thanksgiving! I have a feeling it will not get downvoted to oblivion, and I hope I’t doesn’t, but good luck!

You are correct. It has sufficient upvotes to weather any marauding downvots.
