However; both eagles are at Kent. They just don't realize it's a holiday and they are busy, busy, busy. Got my eagle fix! Now I am leaving to go get my TURKEY FIX! lol

Some little "boy panda cub" that we all know. Isn't happy at the height he is already been at. Now he has deided to climb higher.

If Buta Buta at his age has this kind of climbing ability. They need to be matched up !

Tai was at the milk bar for a minute but then Mei changed her mind. Now he is following her all over the den.

Steven said...

All I can say is I am stuffed.

Anonymous said...

Hi Everyone. I imagine some will be checking in here tonght with full bellies. Others still have houses full of company or miles to drive. Good to see you Sharon I hope your meal and memories were both very good.

Anonymous said...

I'm stuffed too, Steve! What a meal - Turkey, ham and all the trimmings. It was a beautiful, beautiful day. The rainy
weather didn't even seem to matter once we all gathered as a family.

Hi Sharon & Glo. I am so thankful for all my friends!

Anonymous said...

Hi Mema Jo Glad to hear your meal and time with family was good. Kind of amazing how something inside says check the bLOG you have spent an awful lot of time with those people this year too. All because of 2 pretty great eagles, and the folks who bring them too us. Too cool. Waht a change in how I spend my time since last year!!!

Mits said...

Wow...the main man, STEVEN made a surprise visit, such an honor...got to say I'm right there with you STEVEN. Hope all had a good day. Talk to you tomorrow.

Nilla said...

T'was the night of Thanksgiving, But I just couldn't sleep,
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned - The dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation With all of my might.
Tossing and turning, With anticipation,
The thought of a snack Became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, Flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge, Full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey And buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, Beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling So plump and so round,
'Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, Floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding And a handful of pie.
But, I managed to yell As I soared past the trees....
Happy eating to all - Pass the cranberries, please.
May your stuffing be tasty, May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes and gravy Have nary a lump,
May your yams be delicious, May your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner Stay off of your thighs.
May your Thanksgiving be blessed!!
