What an incredible day! Amazing! A day indeed of Thanksgiving!
God was so pleased with the way the people of the United States of America had behaved over the past year that he made a decree that nothing (not even a gnat) would die on Thanksgiving Day. How He got this message across remains a mystery, but He did.
The Clancy Family were especially delighted; Leighton Clancy in particular. He’d been feeling ill for some time and knew his days were numbered. The family had not been in celebration mode, so to get a reprieve for Thanksgiving! What a relief! What a joy! Nothing would die on Thanksgiving Day! Not even a firefly! Not even a flea! This was indeed a cause to celebrate! A feast!
Leighton Clancy went out and chopped the head off the turkey.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!
P.S. Mrs Clancy had the devil of a time stuffing the turkey. The damn thing wouldn’t keep still.
