rest...yeah, uh no...

 Freya is my Goddess..I used to have a bumper sticker with a picture of her(like we know what she looks like) and it said :"If you can't lay 'em, slay 'em.."

Abby and 
 this is Abby and I at our annual Thanksgiving dinner that West has for the city every year..she has wanted to volunteer with me every year since she was 3..finally got to go with me..and she was wonderful..She would greet people at the door and wish them a Happy Thanksgiving..she went around checking to see if they needed more drinks or anything.She served the cranberry sauce at first and then she was so good at it they let her serve the green beans..people were coming up to me and telling me what a sweet girl she was..and what she was doing and saying..people were giving her a dollar for tips and she would give them to old people and say I'm sorry I can't take money for this..so I gave her $10 ..she has no problem taking me money from me. we served almost 200 togo meals and about 200 inside..we had turkey, ham, dressing, sweet potatoes, gravy, rolls and cranberry sauce. It was and always is great food..they start about Tuesday getting ready for it..I've volunteered every year for about 8 ??? years..missed one when I was sick..this is a free dinner..if you want to donate money you can..but basically..it's a gift from West to the citizens..makes me proud..

Good for Abby for volunteering at the dinner! You provide her with a wonderful example of community service, Jackiesue, and I'm sure it will inspire her throughout her life.

Satan saying to Trump: "That's right. You're the chosen one" -- EXACTLY! This one meme summarizes all the other memes about him, LOL!

Learning to volunteer is the best thing anyone could teach a child to do. She's such a cutie too.

LOL, I was scrolling down your post and saw your picture and started wondering how you and Abby ended up in a meme, D'oh! Then I saw the description of your Thanksgiving underneath. Sometimes I'm a little slow.
