A Hideous Child from the Dead

Thanksgiving is an important time of the year for us here at the cabin. We make a special batch of moonshine, Ma takes out the real fancy dishes, Pa and the little ones gather berries for fresh pies. And folks come from miles away to tell a yarn and share some good cookin'. Actually, Thanksgiving for my family has always been a favorite holiday. I hate Halloween and New Years Eve. I can't get overly excited about Easter. But any American holiday such as the Fourth of July, or Thanksgiving is alright for us. It's not that we're wildly patriotic. It's the holiday that doesn't offend anyone. There's no religious overtones, and nobody needs to dress in costume or stay up past 10pm.

This year I'm thankful for so many things. It would be a long list so I won't go into detail. But the most important thing that all of us should be thankful for is that the child above is not ours.
