To all whom these presents come, greetings...


The First Thanksgiving
Jean Leon Gerome Ferris

May your Thanksgiving be happy,
May you spend time with loved ones,
May you have something to be thankful for,
May you be loved,
May you have someone to love.

For those spending the holiday on duty,
Thank You.

Happy Thanksgiving










In the painting, the scene depicted is a romanticized version and not historically accurate. The clothing worn by the Pilgrims is incorrect, the Wampanoag did not wear feathered war bonnets, nor would they have been sitting on the ground. I still like the painting. So there.

  3. Late from me, but Happy Thanksgiving!

    (I was being tempted to say something about the pilgrims sitting at a table and the indians sitting on the ground, but you took care of that.)

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
