...from us to you.
In our house, we were up early, reading the newspaper ads just as the Pilgrims did.

I see Walter has been in the kitchen, working his fingers to the bone.

Wow - am I really the first to wish Walter a Happy Thanksgiving?

Oh - and the rest of the blog as well!

Oh well, I guess not. Have a Happy anyway!

Nice Cudgel Dave. Did you use it on the Turkey?
Personally, I would like to thank you for your humor and this blog. Your columns over the years have never failed to amuse me.
*/End suck-up*
Anyway, wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving and a Joyous holiday season.

FSU -- Thanks, but that's no cudgel. That's Walter.

I had an Uncle Walter. He was a curmudgeon. Is that any relation to cudgel?

Is Walter house trained?

I wonder what goes with roast walrus for thanksgiving dinner?

Lookin' good, Walter!

Thanks Dave and Judi, for a really great year- you will think I'm stalking you (Dave), but the Hunt and our upcoming Disney trip will have been on my "most-fun-things-I've-done- -but-that-everyone-else-thinks-I'm-a-huge-geek-when- I-talk-about-it-but-I-don't-care-'cause-I-had-a-blast" list.

I'm thankful for the bloglits- some of us are now friends in real space, too (thanks to cg for the phrase). I can always count on a snork, if not guffaws.

I'm thankful that the ground is wet in Atlanta.

I'm thankful that our pool is done!

Party at my place next year!! Dave- can you have a book signing in my basement?

Walter is in drag??? NTTAWWT...

And let me echo FSU: You've been getting me through life's rough spots for years. Weaned on Benchley, sustained by Barry. Major thanks to you and all the humor gods.

Ohh- I forgot!

Thanks to Mrs. Blog and Sophie for dragging Dave to the Hannah Montana concert- female docling stared at the pix and trembled because she wanted to go so badly when Hannah came (comes?) to Atlanta, but I reminded her that we couldn't afford it because we were going to Disney instead. Same price.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

The pies are done, and we are headed into the snow and ice of Northeast Ohio. Tonight all of the Christmas decorations come out of the attic. The kids are excited, but mommy is more excited. I love the holidays!

I'll catch you all when I get back home.

*sneaks up on Igloo with a blow torch*


Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Walter is looking pretty sporty there, and very non-turkey-like. And what is Walter thankful for this Thanksgiving? (Other than that he's not a turkey, except possibly in the metaphorical sense)

I'm thankful for couches.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! I get to go upstairs for the holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving ,Dave, Mrs. Blog,Judy, Sophie, and all the Bloglits ..

Hopefuly we won't be of to slaughter Native Amricans, the way our ancestors did....

I'm off to stuff the Turkey, in this state where it is already January in Temp....


DiverDD - We could make it over for the pool party. Do you allow Border collies?

Ditto on the rain here in Atlanta. We got 2 inches here this morning, and it looks like the area to the north that drains into the reservoirs did too.

Joyeaux Thanksgiving to all and to all some good turkey (or nut roast for the vegetarians).

We allow all collies!

Steer clear of the tofu turkey y'all . . .

*zips in*™

♪♫ Happy Thanksgiving to all!

*zips in*

(thanks for the use of your zipper, EL)

I just picked up my son from the Miami airport (hour round trip). (he got up at 3:30 am for a 5:30 am flight out of JFK - so he's napping now)

Oven doesn't work (again), so we'll go out for dinner. Yay!

Happy Thanksgiving! Dave, be sure to let us know where to go for the best bargains!

(El, I'm amazed we both fit through the zipper at the same time...hope I didn't crowd you any - and thanks again.)

I found you, the good folks here and this blog by accident. I was volunteering as a moderator on an HIV/aids ch@t site. I was just wore out. "He looked clean" "She looked OK" and my favorite; "we were married, so I knew we were safe..."

One of the above burst me in to tears. My wife saw this. (Not good in guy land) ((4 yrs later)) So I googled "humor" and Dave's blog came up.

When I came in here, Desk Diva and Siouxie forgave my 5th grade spelling and poor grammar as did all. But I felt a lil bad. I took online courses and still fail. (There is a reason they are free)

I have done well in life. Slow and without good diction. But you brought me good humor and higher standards and I thank you.

Happy ThanksGiving!

happy thanksgiving ya'll ;) here's a video i just found, with no point at all (tho it's apparently about thanksgiving) except that kids are cute ;)


*staggers* in. no zipping here.


is walter wearing one of those chinese hats that i'm not gonna bother trying to figure out how to spell?

Happy Thanksgiving to all! We're off to the Poconos for a relaxing Thnaksgiving holiday - no relatives, no leftovers and no food poisoning. Been there done that...So we've been doing the resort thing for at least 15 of the last 22 years.... :-) I like it! And am thankful for it!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Remember, Kohl's and JC Penney open at 4am tomorrow!
Sears, Circuit City, Walmart and Best Buy at 5!
Target and Staples at 6!
*eye roll*

A zipper simul with dasiy! I think that's a first, for the zipper anyway. ;)

It's a wonderful zipper, daisy. Expands to fit any situation. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to Dave, judi, Michelle & Sophie & Walter and the rest of you turkeys that I've come to know in this crazy place we call "home".

Go out and, like the turkey, get stuffed today!!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of you wonderful blogits out here. I am grateful to have made so many delightful friends out here, courtesy of the inimitable Dave, the WONDERFUL Judi, and, yes, even the handsome and striking Walter, the stealth oosik. This place is unparalleled for fun and frolic, conversation and discussion.

Blessings on you, your families, all our troops overseas, our government, and thanks to God, Who holds all of us in His mighty hand.


judi's linky!

Thanks, judi. They are cute, but I may need more java, 'cuz I couldn't understand what they were saying.

I, too, am thankful for the blog, the laughs, and the love and friendship of everyone here.

If your family starts getting on your nerves today, grab a beverage and put the "fun" into dysfunctional. I'll be here waiting for the stories of creatively managing the in-laws and out-laws!

I'll just echo my Thanksgiving wishes to everyone from yesterday's posts, except to add Walter to the list.

My family is watching the annual M@cy's T-Day Parade of Product Promotions awaiting the subtle crowning hint moment when Santa appears. Even my kids are wondering what it does to promote actual thankfulness.

I propose, since we are all so genuinely grateful for this blog and its creator, that we add a giant Dave balloon to the parade to give it a basic sense of fun and joy.

Thanks, judi and Siouxie! The kids are adorable. I love to see kids making hand movements with their songs. I think that's why everyone loves to sing Itsy Bitsy Spider with little kids. :)

[Repeating myself, from the guys & dolls thread]

Morning everyblogy! Catching up a bit after a loooong winter's nap. Is it spring yet? Apparently not. No accumulation here, Wyo, but we are having snow floozies.

I want to say thanks to Dave and Michelle and Rob and Sophie and judi and Walter (the oosik) and Walter (the CMD) and Ridley and Peter and Molly and Fighting Pr0n and Jack and Chloe and Ramparts and Edgar and House and the Academy and my mom and BM (the Pooh) and all you bloglits and blogsters for making this such a fun place to hang out and snork and arrrr and learn.

dances (aka Wayne, but not WayneHere), mrsdances, and the 2 dancesgirls, Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

More YouTube goodness for this holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving to all, and to all a good night.

(Don't O.D. on tryptophan.)

awww cute kids! Like Meanie, I'm watching the parade. Can we include a giant walrus penis balloon with judi holding it??

Turkey for me
Turkey for you
Let's eat the turkey
In my big brown shoe
Love to eat the turkey
At the table
I once saw a movie
With Betty Grable
Eat that turkey
All night long
Fifty million Elvis fans
Can't be wrong
Turkey lurkey doo and
Turkey lurkey dap
I eat that turkey
Then I take a nap

Thanksgiving is a special night
Jimmy Walker used to say Dynomite
That's right
Turkey with gravy and cranberry
Can't believe the Mets traded Darryl Strawberry
Turkey for you and
Turkey for me
Can't believe Tyson
Gave that girl V.D.

White meat, dark meat
You just can't lose
I fell off my moped
And I got a bruise
Turkey in the oven
And the buns in the toaster
I'll never take down
My Cheryl Tiegs poster
Wrap the turkey up
In aluminum foil
My brother likes to masturbate
With baby oil
Turkey and sweet potato pie
Sammy Davis Jr.
Only had one eye

Turkey for the girls and
Turkey for the boys
My favorite kind of pants
Are corduroys
Gobble gobble goo and
Gobble gobble gickel
I wish turkey
Only cost a nickel
Oh I love turkey on Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

[Rather: Repeating myself from the Pooh-Cooking thread. Must have more coffee!]

*snork* I was waiting for the Turkey Drop video! Thanks, Chris.

(I forgot to copy and paste Adam Sandler's name. my bad)

And, of course, the second half.

"As God is my witness, ..."

SIOUXIE! That's a GREAT idea!! Immortalize our beloved judi in mylar (or whatever those balloons are made from) - excellent.

And may I just say - I'll take any two of the Rockettes' spare legs. They can even be two lefts for all I care. (My mom says I had legs like that when I was younger. I just need to unstuff 'em now, I guess.)

Dan, that's a classic too...thanks for the shout out. We all had to endure Annie our friends picking on our espellin & grammur ;-)

And it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without Alice's Restaurant. (warning: 18 1/2 minutes of Arlo goodness.)

Happy T-Day, everyone!

I am going to have a typical dysfunctional holiday festive meal, Miami-style. Some of you may know what that means. I'm bringing wine.

God is your waitress, dpc? What restaurant are you going to???

Happy Thanksgiving, all.

oh thanks, dread pirate :) they did a 30-second version of that song on our local morning radio show and i was hoping to hear the whole thing!

Now I have to go shove bread up a dead bird's butt. (Sound's really appetizing when you say it that way, no?)

While I'm gone, please enjoy the pictures from our local Spanksgiving Day Parade.

Please, pirate, not *another* Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat! We haven't even started the first one.

Chris, make sure you wash your hands before and after spanking stuffing.

hmm where's my post!! who stole it???

*hands Siouxie a post*

Oh, sorry - I didn't know it was yours. ;-)

oops...there it is. nevermind.

btw, crossgirl?? I thought the same thing and wondered if Walter was picking rice for their Thanksgiving dinner.

Hat looks like THIS one.

A very Happy Thanksgiving to all blogguys and bloggals. And to the team that made it possible, Dave, Mrs. Blog, Sophie, Walter, and of course, judi!

Exactly, Siouxie. LOL!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Awesome vid Chris!!! Years ago I sailed on his Dad's boat the "Clearwater" On the Hudson. She had no proper heads so we used buckets, then covered the waste with saw dust. West Point kindly allowed us to empty the 20 5 gallon buckets in their waste treatment plant. but we got the wrong man-hole covers and polluted their drinking water. They didn't think it was funny.

*waves at Siouxie*

Hey, neighbor! Ya got rice and beans on the menu today? ;)

Danny, that is the GROSSEST thing!!! Um, that reminds me - I am thankful that I have clean water! ;-)

*waves back @ Suzy*

Butt of course! Doesn't everybody have rice and beans on Thanksgiving??

I'm now in the process of making my cornbread/cheese/sour cream/cheese/loads of butter/cheese/onion & cheese casserole. It's my specialty. I've got to make 4 (cuz everyone wants lots of leftover - including my child).

Siouxie - Yum! Could you make me a virtual one?

Jeez. I'm a bit air sick and soaking wet, 'cause I went over the woods and through the river.

Just dam.

Siouxie - recipe?

*grins cheesily*

Siouxie - willing to share the recipe?

Bird's in the oven; now I have to go mangle a gourd...

CJ, it's water under the bridge now. Just concentrate on having a fun day!

*brushes cheese out of teeth*

Of course I'm willing to share. Oh and it also has creamed corn and some cheese. It's healthy, has a veggie!

email me and I'll attach the recipe. Very easy to make(if I can do it, Walter can).

Nevermind, here it is:

Thanksgiving Corn Bread

One large chopped onion
6 tablespoons of butter
2 packs of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
2 8oz cans of creamed corn
1 16 oz carton of sour cream
2 eggs
4 tablespoons of milk
3 cups of finely shredded cheddar cheese

Saute onion in butter, drain of excess butter into a deep
casserole dish ( 9 x 12 or bigger). In a bowl, mix corn
muffin mix, creamed corn, eggs and milk. Put into casserole
as the first layer. Mix sour cream, cheese and onion. Spoon
on top of corn bread mix. Bake at 350 for approximately 1 hr.
(or till done). The edges will brown first.


Ooh, that sounds DEADLY good!!! Thank you! :-)

Walter's Hat....Thankful if link works. http://www.spoonsisters.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=42402&Category_Code=1001000&Product_Count=12

Jan C's link

Oh well...Happy Thanksgiving!

Thankful for DeskDiva and everyone else here!

oh btw, I use a sweet onion, like vidalia, but you can use any. The edges come out bready (crusty) but the inside is gooey and yummy and cheesy.

LOVE vidalias. Sweet onions are just the best.

LOVE vidalias. Sweet onions are just the best.

I'm getting old - I'm starting to repeat myself.

Sioux, I think it might need more cheese.

Diva, your not getting older. Your getting easyer to chase, out run and catch hotstuff! (who has it better then me?)

Aw, Danny. You're a DOLL. Love you! :-)

*runs off to shower for the day....finally*

Mr. Barry,

I am a mexican guy who wants to be a writer when I grow older. I guess many people have asked you this question before, and probably you will never read this comment 'cause you're busy pretty much. If you habe the time, any advice for this I-want-to-be-a-writer guy?


Happy Thanksgiving, Blog family, judi, Walter and bloglits!

*gives thanks*


Be nice, Dave. This ain't McClatchy.

Looks like even the bot is taking a day off, I can blog from home for the moment. Happy Thanksgiving all

I can't believe we're discussing a picture of a bone in a bonnet. NTTAWWT

Can't stay, but just checkin' in to say how much all of you mean to me. (Sioux, your Christmas video made me cry. I love Brad Stine.)

Cool to see all the emails. thanks to all, an' have some fun, but don't forget to thank God for makin' it all possible.

Hey, Mot! Good to see you (and everyone else, of course). Happy Thanksgiving!

As I have said for a few years now, I'm extremely thankful for this place and you people. Everyone needs a little oasis of fun to escape to, and this is ours.

Dave, I hope you get a big ol' warm-&-fuzzy out of the knowledge that you brought together this incredible community of amazing people by providing a walrus penis in a variety of poses us with The Blog. Thank you, thank you, a thousand times thank you.

To everyone, may all of your boogers you be blessed. Today and always.

PS, Brad Stine's work is here

BOT, whatever that is.

Here's something weird for Turkey Day...
WARNING: Not Safe for Work language

quote: "Gonna make your ass tired with all of my tryptophan"

Turkey Rap

How was Thanksgiving in Miami? ¿Arroz con habichuelas y carrrrrrne asasda?

But Diverdowndoc, Siouxie's just doing her part in the fight against osteoporosis by having people ingest all that good calcium!

Wyo, welcome and a big smooch to you and Diane!

ddd, but it's soooooooooooooo good! I just had a piece of it - fresh outta the oven. All 4 are done (one's just for me and my daughter ;-)

dances, not yet but it does involve rice and beans. Off to shower and get ready. Later turkeys!

It goes without saying that one of the things we must all be thankful for is our men and women who serve and who have served our country. Let them know we all thank them and their families for all their sacrifices. God Bless them. To our bloglit service people - Thank you from the bottom of this Cuban's heart.

Now I'm off - smoochies
