Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery

I shot this video last Memorial Day at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. After an hour or so someone approached me and told me that drones were not allowed in the cemetery. I certainly wouldn’t have done it if I had known that.
Normally there would be flags at every gravesite but they didn’t do that last year because of the pandemic.

Twas the Nite of Thanksgiving…

Twas the Nite of Thanksgiving
But I just couldn’t sleep 
I tried counting backwards, 
I tried counting sheep. 

The leftovers beckoned – 
The dark meat and white 
But I fought the temptation 
With all of my might 

Tossing and turning 
With anticipation 
The thought of a snack 
Became infatuation. 

So, I raced to the kitchen, 
Flung open the door 
And gazed at the fridge, 
Full of goodies galore. 

Gobbled up turkey 
And buttered potatoes, 
Pickles and carrots, 
Beans and tomatoes. 

I felt myself swelling 
So plump and so round, 
‘Til all of a sudden, 
I rose off the ground. 

I crashed through the ceiling, 
Floating into the sky 
With a mouthful of pudding 
And a handful of pie. 

But, I managed to yell 
As i soared past the trees…. 
Happy eating to all – 
Pass the cranberries, please. 

May your stuffing be tasty, 
May your turkey be plump. 
May your potatoes ‘n gravy 
Have nary a lump, 

May your yams be delicious 
May your pies take the prize, 
May your Thanksgiving dinner 
Stay off of your thighs. 

Happy Turkey Day!
