Happy Thanksgiving (an' BIRTHDAY to Mom)


We wanna wish efurryone in the blogosphere (an' their famblies) a HAPPY TURKEY DAY, but first we wanna wish Mom a happy forty-first birthday.  

She's been sick since Sunday when she got food poisoning drinking a two-ounce sample of Trader Joe's apple cider.  She even stayed home from school (after driving down there to write lesson plans).  

Then she pulled a muscle in her back (the right side) an' paralyzed herself while "prayin' to the porcelain god".  She had to have Grandma drive her to work 'cuz she couldn't do any fine motor things with her right hand.

Now she's better ... or so she claims.  She's promised lots of turkey for us 'cuz she doesn't have much of an appetite.  She hasn't been eatin' much, so she wasn't too thrilled when her students wanted to hug her for her birthday an' they squeezed too hard (she says).

Be thankful for your health this holiday ... an' be sure to share some of those good eats wit' your kitties an' woofies (an' give some green leafy veggies to your buns an' rats)!

Chow down, doods (an' doodettes)!

First of all we hope your mum is feeling better so she can enjoy her birthday and Thanksgiving day. We've never had food poisoning, but we know when our mum got it from a buffet she went to once, she camped out in the bathroom.
Thanks for inviting us to share your turkey. It's appreciated because as we don't have Thanksgiving here, we get neglected and get the same old food.

Everycat said...

Hi DaisyMae, thank you for visiting us!

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Birthday to your Mom. We hope she's well enough to enjoy the day and that you all get heaps of turkey. Like Eric and Flynn we are in the UK and we just get our normal fuuds. Oh how we suffer!

Happy Turkey Day and Happy Birthday DMM Mom - at least I hope it is. That's rotten to get food poisoning at this time of year (or any time for that matter).

I've been laffin n laffin at those newspaper headings! You may not believe it from reading my blog and comments, but I'm a pedantic old thing, haha! :) xxx

Ohhhh DaisyMae, we are so sorry for what happened to your Mom!!! The food poisoning is bad enough, but to hurt her back too, that is even worse. Sighs ... we hope she is really feeling better! We want to first and foremost wish your Mom a very Happy Birthday, and secondly but no less important wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your turkey, and we will be thankful for our health, that's for sure!
