The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water

Turkey Leftovers

Hello, its me again, Tom Turkey in 3D,

I had to sit down after the big feast and holiday weekend we just had.


Did you have a good Thanksgiving?

Me, I’m bloated.

And I seemed to have eaten so much that I can’t get my darned fave green vest closed anymore.

All us turkeys in 3D made it through last week with ease. Our B&B was only partially filled with family and friends this past holiday so it was not quite as hectic. And while we did miss seeing the normal faces around here it was nice to sit my big turkey butt down and have complete access to the…

remote control.

This turkey got smoked and then I was accompanied by some mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, some .50  stuffing and dessert.

Ahhh, dessert! That was my favorite class in school.

We made two pies all set for me to gobble for Thanksgiving.


our friendly neighbor from across the street, the one that my girls have not alienated yet by their basketball running through her flower bed, brought over her delicious, mouth-watering, too-good-to-be-true-that-I-must-have-died-cause-this-must-be-in-Heaven pumpkin pie.


With a capital Mmmmmm.

Well how can you decide on a holiday made for Thanking and Feasting which pie you should have after the big gobble-wobble?

So I made a healthy decision and didn’t have any pie after the feast!

Oh really Daddy?

I had a piece of all three!

Its true (insert frowny-face emoji)

But then…

As plump and ripe and tired and satiated as this Turkey’s family was after the feast there was still some squawking in the coop about the Christmas decorations needed to go up this (past) weekend.

What the @%&(!?

And as my friend from last week, Donald Trump would say, or tweet,

I beg your pardon?”

Apparently, it is a Tom Turkey family tradition to put up the Christmas decorations the weekend of putting the bird away. 

The relaxing 4 day holiday weekend.

The college football rivalry week weekend!

Well I told Mrs. Turkey I never ever @$%^@! of such a #%&*@ thing!….

…under my breath.

So now my living room looks like this:

Now listen….

I am Not that bad of a photographer.

Despite what you are thinking. It wasn’t my phone, er, camera either.

It was just…


I had just had a glass of Drambuie

(after yet another shameful piece of pumpkin cheesecake)

and my sight may have been a little bit, ahhh…


Just saying….

But the decorating is done and I like it and I don’t have to stress about decking the halls for anymore weekends this year.

Its done.

Cross it off the list.

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here…

..But the prettiest sight to see

is the kitchen clean as can be

As my dog cleans the floor..

Yes it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.

Everywhere you go

We took a train to the Grand Hotel.

One in the park as well,

The ancient kind that doesn’t mind there’s no other place to go-o-oh..

Sorry that last Christmas Carol was just a little forced into this blog, wasn’t it?
I’m sorry.

You see, I do a lot of driving for my job and I have been listening to too many Christmas Carols all day I have been told.

Everyone I meet just seems get ambushed by the last Christmas Carol I heard that gets stuck in my head.

Does that happen to you?

You can’t get the last carol out of your head?

Like this morning …

I texted my wife, who was about ready to leave for work. The traffic was in a snarl again and so I wanted to advise her to leave extra time to get to work.

But when I spoke into my text’er machine it came out:

“Oh the traffic outside is frightful

and your bed is so delightful.

And since it moving so slow…

stay at home, stay at home, stay at home…”

Much to the amusement of my two young turkeys in the car on their way to school at my surprise Christmas rap to their mom.


Geez, I need some more material.

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL, PEACEFUL, THANKFUL Thanksgiving!

Thanks for dropping by for some of these Thanksgiving leftovers.

I’ll try to do better next time knuckleheads.

Do you have a favorite Twisted Christmas Carol like the butchered one above?

I would love to hear your version of your fave.

If you do leave it in the hardly used, almost brand new Comment section below. 

I know we have a good handful of great poets that have (in the past) subscribed to this blog.

Lettuce, er, let us hear Your original twisted carol.

Love ya!

Next its time for some Christmas leftovers from Christmas reposts of Christmas past.

(cause I have finally hit my 100% memory in my media file on this post and I may have to do a fundraiser to get enough money to Upgrade with WP for some extra picture space until then~ le sigh)

Have a great weekend!

  1. Always a pleasure dropping by! 🙂

  2. Yes, our neighbor is great. I will get her, them back w some holiday ice cream. She also stores our kids toys till we are ready to wrap them. And if everyone, EVERYONE, had their way, the tree would have been up Thanksgiving. She, they put up everything but the 🌲 Black Friday. The tree and train take a little bit of prep work. I trust you do have your clan happy’ Ms Betsy. Thanks for dropping by.

  3. Wow, yeah, that train set must’ve taken some time. At least your people are happy. My people wanted to put the tree up on Black Friday. I managed to get them to wait until Sunday, at least, so that our friends who were coming Saturday night wouldn’t be like, “Dudes, why’s your tree up so early?”
    Also, I want that pie baking neighbor! 🙂

  4. That’s what I always said, I don’t need to win I just want to win long enough to play a few hours.. Nothing like the sights and sounds of a casino.

  5. Yes, at the Casino. Did not win but I had fun and that’s all that matters

  6. So where did you spend your Thanksgiving at, the casino? Win enough to be thankful? Your Christmas sounds peaceful, warm and low key too. Good for you! Thanks for dropping by my place here! Have a great weekend!

  7. Hey there, great to hear from you!! Glad you had a good Thanksgiving.
    I got invited to quite a few friends “other peoples families” dinners and I though Oh HECK NO, and got out of dodge!!
    Spent my Turkey day frivolously and lavishly eating and gambling at the finest Casino establishment…. okay it wasn’t the finest but it was pretty cool.
    No Christmas carol earworms from me!!
    This year I will be baking in the hot sun and hopefully spending some time at the beach!!

I would love to hear from you...
