A quaint American custom: Thanksgiving dinner, for those Land of Topiary readers residing abroad (Kevin, Scones, Linda, and assorted twaddle, and of course denizens of the mighty Congo).

Tables groaning with food, and guests groaning about...the other guests. Family traditions, you see.

Being a Single Cow of the Topiary Persuasion, Cow has at times spent a lonely Thanksgiving.

But this Thanksgiving, Cow is truly blessed with three invitations to Thanksgiving dinners! Already!

Cow rather suspects that she has been invited as leavening, to lighten Family Conversations. Of course, Cow has with joy accepted all invites, and will be travelling via Topiary G4 (just like the auto execs) from one house to another.

Timing, though, is crucial. Must arrive after the main course, but before all dessert is gone.

Topiary steps on her soapbox momentarily, and reminds Families to remember their Single Friends during the Holidays, who may, if invited, come in pretty dresses, full of sprightly conversation, and possibly may bring pies.

What a delightful Thanksgiving guest you must be, Ms Cow. If I celebrated the occasion, I'd invite you before any member of my hairy family.

What an excellent way of preventing the traditional family row!

Have fun and eat lots. Just to be polite, of course!

Cow sending Thanksgiving wishes to all friends too!

It sounds like a way to prepare the stomach for Christmas. You know, fill it up and expand it ready for a giant fill only a few weeks later.

USA does celebrate events so well. I often think that it would be great to experience Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas in America (and anything else in between).
