Happy American Thanksgiving Day!

Have a great Thanksgiving Day to our American Cousins from The Gnome Tapestry!

thanks-giving-tableI hope that you have a safe Thanksgiving Day!. Please be safe on the road — take a little extra time. We have much to be thankful for and I hope that you do as well. One of the best is being able to spend time with family, friends, and other loved ones. I’m also thankful that the “The Gnome Tapestry” has been going on for over 4 years! I have so very many things to be thankful for that I can’t number them.

Thanks!

Lest We Forget

Take a Moment to Remember

Remembrance Day 2017

This is a day to remember all those people who have made sacrifice for others. Take a moment today to remember those who went to war — some never to return, others returning whole or broken; both inside or out. Remember, in addition to the soldiers, the peace keepers, the first responders and others that keep us safe. Also remember their parents, grandparents, spouses, siblings, children, grandchildren, and all who loved them and miss them.

We hear “PTSD” mentioned frequently with regards to those who have served in dangerous, violent situations. I think we should remember, even before we send people into these situations how they are being put into danger. They don’t come back untouched. It is a sacrifice made even if they aren’t physically hurt.

We might agree or disagree with the wars that have happened, but regardless of that soldiers place their lives on the line for us.

Let us not forget their sacrifices.

The Halloween Specials

Over the past 4 years I’ve published a few Halloween cartoon strips following a 5 part one the first year.

I’m not sure what I will be doing next year… then again, I didn’t know what I was going to do this year either!

Jack’s Tale

Jack’s Tale

They came for the small ones, the gherkins, and I said nothing.
Then they came for the larger cucumbers and the zucchini, and I did nothing.
The vegetable marrow and the summer squash went, and still I said nothing.
Then, the melons were gone before I could even think of doing anything.
The thumping thuds on the watermelons haunt me still.
Now they’ve come for my brother and me.
I scream silently as he cries, “They’re cutting into me.”
“They are scoping out my brains.”
I smell the ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon even as they carve a hideous face on my brother.
I smell the roasting of the seeds from my brother’s head even as the knife stabs into me.

Happy Thanksgiving Day Weekend! 2017

thanks-giving-tableI want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you can spend the day with those you love and consider all that you have to be thankful for. Please be safe on the roads if you are travelling.

Monday is Thanksgiving Day in Canada, October 9th, 2016. We hold it the second Monday in October. Our harvest is on average a bit earlier than in the US so our end of harvest holiday is earlier as well.
