Blessing of Thanks…By Rowdy Rebel

During the weeks before Thanksgiving, the boys studied about the Pilgrims and their voyage to the New World. They learned in school about difficulties that faced new comers to the Americas long ago.

I suppose these recent lessons in school had something to do with Rowdy Rebel’s blessing at dinner the other night. He folded his hands, bowed his head, and said:

“Dear God, thank you for our family. Thank you for the food we eat.

“And thank you that turkeys are so dumb and so easy to catch…not like BEFORE when turkeys were smart and HARD to catch so people back then didn’t have enough FOOD to EAT.”

I think I understand what Rowdy Rebel was trying to say.
