Thanksgiving Soup

I've taken this post from Pilgrim Pal Paul's Still Rambling blog. I'm not sure I would be thankful if I was in his shoes but then...Paul is much more spiritual than the Pilgrim Father.

One of my favourite Christmas treats is Candy Cane Chocolate Fudge Crackle ice cream.... I have never ever seen it come out this early... it's usually November before I find it.....but I found some today.....

and here's my Thanksgiving poem to show how truly thankful I am!!

Praise God from whom
all blessings flow
this ice cream came
before the snow.

while shopping for
some pumpkin pie
these tubs of GLORY
caught my eye

i bought two tubs
I plan ahead!
But sad to say
I'm an air head

I plunked the tubs
inside my trunk
while driving home
I heard a clunk

I ended up
with out my car
and walking home
seemed just too far

Canad'ian TIRE
I saw with glee
garage doors open
just for me

We limped on in
my car, and me
to see what kind
of help they'd be.

"Your Batt'rey's dead"
his words brought pain
some of my cash
those words did gain!

but cash aside
and truth be told
I'm thankful for
those words so bold.

No tow truck came
no long long walk
I'm thankful for
mechanic talk.

But whilst I fixed
my battery dead
the ice cream slipped
my mind... oh dread.

So now I'm home
and here's the scoop
my ice creams' merely
Ice cream SOUP!

but I'm stillllllllllllll thankful for it!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Mrs. Shirke,
