Happy Thanksgiving!

The Wet Noodle Posse would like to extend its best wishes for a safe and happy Thanksgiving. We are truly thankful to have such wonderful readers.

So are you among those who hunker down in front of the TV to watch every minute of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, or are you sneaking in a little writing time while your turkey and dressing brown?

Since you're stopping by for a quick check of the blog, take the moment to enjoy a poem that celebrates the holiday--Langston Hughes's Thanksgiving Time.

Thanksgiving Time
By Langston Hughes

When the night winds whistle through the trees and blow the crisp brown leaves a-crackling down,

When the autumn moon is big and yellow-orange and round,

When old Jack Frost is sparkling on the ground,

It's Thanksgiving Time!

When the pantry jars are full of mince-meat and the shelves are laden with sweet spices for a cake

When the butcher man sends up a turkey nice and fat to bake,

When the stores are crammed with everything ingenious cooks can make,

It's Thanksgiving Time!

When the gales of coming winter outside your window howl,

When the Air is sharp and cheery so it drives away your scowl,

When one's appetite craves turkey and will have no other fowl,

It's Thanksgiving Time!
