Script Rewrite

By Terry Golson

Thanksgiving isn’t following the usual script. Instead of a house filled with friends for my annual Pie Party, it’s just Steve and me. And Scooter. It’s cold and raining outside. It’s going to be one of these days.


Po had her Thanksgiving early. Around Halloween the supermarket had a big display of pumpkins and I bought one for her. I set it out


and she came. (Sound on to hear her munching!)


Over the course of a couple of days she ate everything but the stringy guts and seeds.


I don’t have a crowd to cook for, but I won’t go pie-less. Today I’ll be baking a savory carrot pot pie, and an apple pie for dessert. Mostly, though, I’ll be sitting on the couch, reading books that I got from the library yesterday. With a little dog on my lap.

I hope that you’ve been able to rewrite your script to something equally cozy and satisfying.

P.S. Keep an eye on my Instagram account for pie photos!

    Happy Thanksgiving Terry! I think of you often. I love your porcupine posts. Hilarious. Just us and one of my daughter’s and the men and the girls. I finally said Mama doesn’t want to cook anymore. Your pie sounds amazing. Hugs from me. Donna

    Happy Thanksgiving Terry, Steve and Scooter. Glad you have settled in so well and are enjoying Turtle Hill. Must be lovely to be able to trailer Tonka back and ride out over the land. Really love all the videos and blogs about Tonka, Po and all the other visitors. This will be the first Christmas in over 50 years that we have not had a get together of at least 14 people quite often 24 for two days, it will seem very strange and quite with just us two. We keep in touch with video chat but i do miss hugging the grandkids. It will be interesting to see how much snow you get compared to Little Pond Farm loved watching the time lapse videos that Steve did. Stay safe and well. 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving from Gatlinburg TN. It is a beautiful sky blue day. We enjoyed a carry out from one of favorite restaurants. Staying home this year and although it is strange it is ok. There are hundreds of tourists downtown, and traffic is in a knot. Later we will take a walk. So thankful for your posts and pictures. Even in crazy times the world keeps on turning, and we do the best we can. Seeing Scooter snoozing makes everything seem just fine.
