She was no ordinary angel, always serving others. She started every day early, putting on a great breakfast for the hoard of eight that was her family, then, with all satiated, she rushed to serve again, a classroom of fourth graders. She was an Earth-angel, a teacher - my mom!
I've been here in the blind before sunrise, calling the old Tom. He’s coming, he thinks, to meet a mate but all the while he’s getting closer to my sights. He’s close now, another second or two, he’s here. My bead is on his breast. One shot, Thanksgiving turkey. Yum!
Holiday cheer. Won’t be any of that around here this year for us. Family fight five months ago and we’ve not seen our granddaughter since. She’s ten months old but her mother is twenty-six years old and acting like a fifteen year old. It’s killed the holiday spirit well in advance. We’ll avoid them like the plague and be wishing for the happier times of past holidays. Maybe our daughter will come to her senses, do what is right, apologize for the deceit. Oh yeah, and I still believe in Santa Claus. Can already tell it ain’t gonna’ happen this holiday season. Maybe by next year all will be settled and we can sit down to Thanksgiving turkey and my wife’s melt-in-your-mouth dressing. Now, that would be something to celebrate, everyone forgiving and forgiven, a real Thanksgiving.
These old tales are a great read and I have enjoyed them very much. You gotta read "Colonel Starbottle for the Plaintiff". I've gotten many a chuckle from it as well as all the others in this book.
