Haha, very clever! Here’s good riddance to 2020 and praying we can see each other in person on 2021! 💜

    Gaye Gould · 28 December 2020 at 19 h 15 min

    Good riddance is right!!! Can hardly wait to see you again. Now that the awful Donald Trump is vacating the White House, or at least hopefully he will get out of there on time, I will come and visit you!!!

Funny Gay. This year definitely can’t be gone fast enough. I do hope you and yours have remained Covid free. Love the turkeys!

    Gaye Gould · 28 December 2020 at 19 h 14 min

    I love the Turkey’s!! Could not believe they showed up like that. We have never had turkey’s wander onto our property before and here they are, bravely strutting their stuff and seemingly having no fear of the butcher coming for their heads!

      Those turkeys are truly living in the moment…what a mindful bunch!

      Wishing you continued success, health and happiness in 2021, Gaye!

        You are hilarious, Kim! There is a butcher just down the highway so hopefully they get a little less mindful of the present moment and have the fight or flight stress response kick in soon, before they cross over onto her property!
        Happy New Year. I think that after 2020 the bar is set reasonably low for a better year!

Love the song!!!!
Looking forward to appreciating all that we had pre Covid !

    Gaye Gould · 28 December 2020 at 19 h 13 min

    Thanks Antonette!
    Here, here! Can hardly wait to get back to normal, again.
    Hope all is well in your world.
