50 Shades of Gravy

We hope you’re able to spend time with family and friends over the upcoming Thanksgiving week. Chances are there will discussions about the challenges our country is experiencing, discussions which are necessary and worthwhile but which may not reach any resolution. There will also be time to simply enjoy each other’s company, to share a few laughs and catch up on goings on.

As a public service announcement, we are kicking off the week with some suggestions to begin those non-current event conversations. Who doesn’t love a good pun? Here’s to groaning opportunities, whether due to that second helping of turkey and stuffing, or due to the pun that Uncle Fred has brought up at every family gathering since 1996. Or 1966. Or 1946… Then put on your thinking caps, we’d get a big kick out of hearing what are your favorite Thanksgiving Day puns info@marinemillsfolkschool.org or Facebook.

 It doesn’t get any butter than this, right? Did you hear about the cook that didn’t season the turkey? He ran out of Thyme. What kind of cats arrived with the pilgrims? Purr-itans. What does Thanksgiving have in common with Halloween? Gobble-ins. That’s enough fowl language for this newsletter. Eat, drink and cranberry! Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Marine Mills Folk School!
