Annie's Mailbox: Grateful in Arizona

Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar on

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,

pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,

till 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!

Annie's Snippet for Thanksgiving (credit Dick Gregory): "One of the things I keep learning is that the secret of being happy is doing things for other people."
