Illustration Friday- THANKSGIVING, November 23, 1968



I was born on Thanksgiving. Having been adopted as a baby, my mom always told me this story... She put a turkey in the oven and when the timer went off, she found me! The two turkey hands represent my brothers. Ha ha, I love my mom for telling me this story in this way.

what a tender and sweet lady your mom must be! This helped to shape you into the beauty that you are today! And it helped your imagination to create fanciful images. I hope you have a very Happy Birthday and a lovely Thanksgiving!!! Hope you are feeling good too!
