Precious Moments to Ultimate Thanksgiving Mashup 
A lover revisits precious memories 
A family reenact a precious memory - Thanksgiving 


Precious Moments (Shakespearean sonnet) 

I rowed my love upon a summer’s pond
Through fancied dreams which love had there composed
And time stood still to marvel at our bond
That day before the boathouse there was closed
-
Those nights we’d dine and dance amid the stars
Where every single love song played was yours
And every sip of magic there was ours
The night before the diner closed its doors
-
There in our blanket watch the setting sun
Tomorrow’s kiss would wake another day
But here with you tomorrows came undone
Until it came to wisp our spot away
-
So now you know the purpose of this tear
Those precious moments still live on in here


(Just your standard Shakespearean song. Except for this: read it aloud to your partner, over your favorite drinks. Let the words flow naturally along with your memories. And I guarantee this. A kiss is not far off. - Many of you, I'm sure, can relate to this poem. Me, at my age, so much of my past has become precious memories. Add to this that I have done so much. Yes, it was sad, when Schubert's, my favorite bakery, shut down. San Francisco is famous for our French bread (among other things). But our real French bread is long gone. There was a time, before Texaco's oil spill, San Francisco's beaches had white sand. There was a time the neighbors would meet on Sundays to sweep the streets and share the latest gossip over strong coffees (hint, hint). Omar Kiam (one of our special dining spot) - gone. Kathy's (Arlene's favorite dress shop) - gone. The Grand movie theater - gone. Tingles dance palace - gone. These and more - gone, gone, gone. And yet Arlene and I made memories. So as the sonnet ends with tears, for us they are tears of joy for precious memories. May all your things, now memories, be sources of joy.)


With that said: Govi "Carry Me Away" 

Talk about memories- Thanksgiving 


Turkeys have heart attacks. Once the United States Air Force was doing test runs and breaking the sound barrier. Turkeys at a nearby farm dropped dead with heart attacks. For a long time, I could not be found around Thanksgiving, until my wife stopped calling me a turkey. On the serious side (seriously funny) Penn, Kim Dean, Lola, Penn Charles, of The Holderness Family, have put together a mashup of the family's (supposedly true) past Thanksgivings to the backdrop of today's biggest hits. 
One wonders, how many turkey heart attacks will be attributed to this video. "Ultimate Thanksgiving Mashup: Hello, Hotline Bling, and Nae Nae, Holderness Family Style"

Cakes are special. Every 
birthday, every celebration 
ends with something sweet, 
a cake, and people remember. 
It's all about the memories.
