Could've Been - Tiffany

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
SB and I are in the "spirit"
He made a paper "buckle" which he has placed strategically on the front of his black cowboy hat and is speaking in authentic "Pilgrim" speak whilst wearing the said "hat".
I have braided my hair, donned my best "native" duds and am only answering to the name "Talky-pish"
The girls are disgusted and have grounded themselves.
We are drinking "Poinsettias" yummylicious, Champagne and Cranberry juice, hopefully we'll be fit to stuff before we drop.

True Tale:-
Every year for the past nine years someone, (eejit would be a more descriptive term but since I'm being thankful today, I won't go there) different people, equally daft, has said to either SB or myself:

American Person -So, do you celebrate Thanksgiving in Scotland?

Given the number of Native Americans living in Scotland in 1621 you'd think it would be a dead giveaway but NO dear reader, it is not so...only in America.

Last night I had to rethink all of this as I was watching some TV show which was based on Native Americans and " Counting Coup (Coo)"
Were they erstwhile Scottish Farmers?
A man in a skirt is a man in a skirt after all... be it Sheep, Coos,

Just checking in between eat-a-thons. This coup thing sounds familiar. I probably knew it at one time but it has been purged from memory.

Check your date and time setup on blogger. It says Wednesday instead of Thursday.

I just know there's a story behind "Talky-pish," but I don't know if I'm ready to hear it. And I am officially adding "eejit" to my vocabulary, as it will be very useful for someone working in Washington.

I just noticed the punch line under the word KILTS. I didn't notice it before because I nearly went blind because of the sites in the picture.

Mike - Should have had a "wear dark glasses" warning!

Bilbo - Let me know when you are up for it!
Eejit is a GREAT word and can be used either as a term of endearment or the
most derogatory term depending on the venom in the inflection lol
