Thanksgiving Greetings.

Last night was a three hedgehog night. Each of them prodded with sensitive noses. You'd have thought the PON's might have learnt by now that hedgehogs are prickly. Sophie's dying diva squeals are quite something. The angelic duo send Thanksgiving Greetings. They've been up since first light telling all and sundry it's a great day.

And here, beautifully sung, is an old Dutch Thanksgiving song complete with clogs and smiling people. Wish I could explain why the choir is dressed for the 16th century while the congregation are dressed in zoot suits - but I can't : 


  1. The American Thanksgiving is a such a wonderful holiday. We in Europe should adopt it too. Greetings to all of you at the ROF.
    Cheers, Gail (and Bertie).

  2. Oh, the hedgehog bark, we know all about that one ! Chole used to have a special bark just for hedgehogs, how she could tell one was in the garden while she was inside and all the doors were closed we'll never quite comprehend

  3. Bob and Sophie have a lot to be thankful for...Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
    Love the video of them scampering around the tree...they surely bring lots of cheer to your household.

  4. Thank you so much. I love reading your blog. This is a great way to have a moment of peace and a smile before the chaos begins

  5. Kathryn Grayson was a wonderful actress and an even greater singer. This clip is from her movie Seven Sisters made in 1942. The young man is her on screen love interest. Forget the attrocious dubbing and it's still one of the most beautiful performances of this song anywhere anytime
