Happy Thanksgiving 2008

May your blessings be bountiful!


Once, when my feet were bare, and I had not the means of obtaining shoes
I came to the chief of Kufah in a state of much dejection, and saw there a man who had no feet.
I returned thanks to God and acknowledged his mercies,
and endured my want of shoes with patience.

– Sadi, The Gulistan


  1. My blessings ARE bountiful — thank you! YOU are one of my bountiful blessings. 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving Quilly! And to OC too…

    I think a grill would be perfect… and minds open slowly… much more slowly than cans. I often find myself wishing for a Mind-opener!

  2. Have a Happy Thanksgiving to you too. Enjoy the fun of the day making new memories nad sharing love.

    That is a beautiful fern. Is that evidence of a rain shower or dust collected?

  3. Betty — Happy Thanksgiving!

    Melli — in God’s good time.

    Shelly — thanks! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well.

    Jules — Happy Thanksgiving. The Sago Palm is drenched. OC and I actually went out walking between rain bursts last Saturday. Click on the photo to make it bigger.

  4. Bill — thank you!

    Polona — you and Jules both made the same mistake I did. The plant isn’t a fern. It is actually a Palm Tree!

  5. Well, the Sago Palm isn’t a fern, but it isn’t exactly a palm tree either (despite the name). Technically, it’s a cycad. A way to separate them:

    ferns: no seeds, no flowers

    cycads: seeds but no flowers (they make cones like a pine tree)

    palms: seeds and flowers.

  6. like the rich greens and wonderful texture in this photo!
    (Regarding above, hope your eye is feeling much better.)
