LET’S TALK TURKEY: Gravy and Gallstones

As you know, Christmas lights are already going up in business and neighborhoods. What else is new?

So let’s talk turkey.

Our little Island has some awesome Thanksgiving holiday feasts, from Thanksgiving on the Beach (Coco Beach Hotel) to Thanksgiving Brownsville Port Tour (Breakway Cruises).

There are a lot of wonderful places to visit and things to do on Thanksgiving 2021 on South Padre Island.

Let’s begin this week with Thanksgiving toasts, blessings and grace.

Why not stand up and say a memorable recital that every one will remember?

Pretty much everyone and their uncle knows this one: Good food. Good meat. Good Lord. Let us eat! Amen (and dig in).

Here are few that just may be worth your time as you gather with the family, friends, and coworkers, enjoying a Thanksgiving celebration. Be it a Thanksgiving toast or a blessing, you will put smiles on everyone’s faces. As the end of the year is ending sooner than it seems (and that my friends is less than 60 days) a little humor is surely welcomed.


Dear Lord, we thank you for this food, and humbly request that you perform a miracle and remove all the calories from the delicious dessert.

Today we kindly thank you for this food we are about to receive—well, everything except the liver and maybe the cauliflower.

May our stuffing be tasty, may this turkey plump, may our potatoes and gravy have not a lump.

May the yams be sweet and delicious, and the pies take the prize, and may your Thanksgiving dinner, stay off your thighs!

May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey plump, may your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump.

May your yams be delicious, and your pies take the prize, and may this one Thanksgiving dinner, stay off our thighs!

Lord, we know without a doubt you’ll bless this food as we pig out.

Bless this meal with my family and may they be nice when they realize I only dropped the food on the floor twice.

Thank you for teaching me gratitude with this delicious bread and meat.

Thank you for teaching me patience while waiting ’til time to eat.

Thank you for teaching me faith, expecting food, and never having doubts.

Thank you for teaching me suffering by providing these brussel sprouts.
