Thanksgiving Day....RUMBLE!

386th Annual Thanksgiving Day RUMBLE! Who will be the victor this year??
If anybody is interested in reading a children's book to celebrate this time of year I found good a one! Squanto And The Miracle Of Thanksgiving This entertaining and historical story shows that the actual hero of the Thanksgiving was neither white nor Indian, but God. In 1608, English traders came to Massachusetts and captured a 12-year old Indian, Squanto, and sold him into slavery. He was raised by a Spanish monk who shared with him the Christian faith. Ten years later he was sent home to America. Upon arrival, he learned an epidemic had wiped out his entire village. But God had plans for Squanto. God delivered a Thanksgiving miracle: an English-speaking Indian living in the exact place where the Pilgrims land in a strange new world. Pretty cool, eh?

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Alcorn's Chicken Feed

Why use a fake name in your stories when you can use a real one? This is a printscreen from the childrens book I'm finishing up on. Miah Alcorn and I often use each others names for restaurants and stores. In Miah's world, "McDonald's" is often called "McPherson's". This time I decided Mr. Alcorn would own a feed store. I hope you like chickens Miah!
