~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
The Twelve Days of Thanksgiving
On the First Day.....
We give thanks for the fresh turkey feast and its hot trimmings.
On the Second Day.....
We bless the cold turkey sandwiches, slushy cranberry sauce, and hard rolls.
On the Third Day.....
We praise the turkey pie and vintage mixed veggies.
On the Fourth Day.....
We thank the pilgrims for not serving bison that first time, or we'd be celebrating Thanksgiving until April.
On the Fifth Day.....
We gobble up cubed bird casserole and pray for a glimpse of a naked turkey carcass.
On the Sixth Day.....
We show gratitude (sort of) to the creative cook who slings cashews at the turkey and calls it Oriental.
On the Seventh Day.....
We forgive our forefathers and pass the turkey-nugget pizza.
On the Eighth Day.....
The word ''vegetarian'' keeps popping into our heads.
On the Ninth Day.....
We check our hair to make sure we're not beginning to sprout feathers.
On the Tenth Day.....
We hope that the wing meat kabobs catch fire under the broiler.
On the Eleventh Day.....
We smile over the creamed gizzard because the thigh bones are in sight.
On the Twelfth Day.....
We apologize for running out of turkey leftovers.... and everybody says Amen!!!

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
As lovely as the gesture was, it was clear from the first bite that the pie tasted bad. It was so inedible that my grandmother had to throw it away.
Ever gracious and tactful, my grandmother still felt obliged to send the neighbors a note. It read:
"Thank you very much for the pumpkin pie. Something like that doesn't last very long in our house."

A Shorter Path to Your Out-Box
I often send e-mail to the same buddy. But the e-mail programs I use don't have shortcut keys to simplify sending a message to the same recipient.
Right-click your desktop and select New Shortcut. Then type mailto:your-buddy@hislSP.com in the Command line (Windows 98 and Me) or location field (Windows 2000 and XP). (Enter your pal's e-mail address after "mailto:".) Click Next, give the shortcut a name, and place it in your Quick Launch toolbar. When you click it, your e-mail program will open a new message with your friend's address in the To: field.
