Look what I found! My little helper! and Happy Tofurkey Day!

Isn't this great? While shopping at my favorite store - Wharf Hill Antiques in beautiful downtown Smithfield, I found a group of giant mushrooms that are also containers. You can see the join on the stem in the photo. My little Marc Andre, flower elf, volunteered to give you an idea about the size of the mushroom. Marc Andre is less than 3 inches tall. The shop carries things other than antiques and I suspect this isn't old. The others in the group were all unusual and I might just have to go back for more.
Rocky felt left out in the last posting of snuggly kitties. He's often like a little puppy following me around and paying close attention to everything I do. Monday night, he assisted with my laundry detail - "holding" the hangers while I ironed and making sure the laundry basket was empty when I was done with the folding and putting away chores. He is so helpful.

And finally, I wish everyone a Happy Tofurkey Day tomorrow! I am thankful for the soybeans who have provided my feast!

That mushroom must be quite a size. You tiny bear looked as though he could do summer salts on top it was so big. I love your kitty. They are such good friends, and love to be near you what ever you are doing.

Hi Kay! The US is about to celebrate one of the biggest "eating" days of the year! The preferred meal of many is turkey. As I don't eat meat, I enjoy the alternatives that are offered with soy products. I'm still not sure why we think we should eat so much on one day! Mr. Rocky is quite a pal! He loves to be brushed - which is good considerig his long fur coat! I wish you a happy day tomorrow as all of us are eating way to much. I'm thankful to have a friend like you!
Mini hugs,
