A sweet Thanksgiving tale

There's an older fellow who works on my team, who is really having a rough time. Today we had a turkey drawing. People with the best attendance and quality got a chance to win a free turkey. I was so delighted to see this fellow as one of the winners. He looked at that turkey being given to him, and mentioned that he was almost out of food - he'd been existing on one dollar TV dinners, which aren't the best for his diabetes. Because of that drawing, he's going to have a good Thanksgiving dinner, plus wholesome food to supplement his meals for days to come. I was so happy to see this! I think he'll be the recipient of the ancient and honorable holiday tradition. I'm going to get him some good nutritious food and stick it in a box, wrapped up from Santa, and it'll somehow find it's way onto his desk. Or maybe into his truck.

The poor guy. It must be so hard for some people. I'm so pleased he got a turkey. And what a lovely thought to give him some groceries nearer to Christmas. You are so kind. :)

@Rohvannyn This brings back this year's Christmas Tale. Dad really hit the nail on the head when he wrote it.

His drawing was it good? The drawing depicted here is one of yours? I really like your website and how you present yourself. I can appreciate your style of art and also like the picture of the tree and how it was entitled "the great old woman".

Thank you! The drawing I am talking about is a random drawing, kind of like a raffle.

I like drawings in pencil always did. Painting and even photographs are nice with all the colour but a black and white drawing does make it so, I don't know, maybe because everyone at one time did one, even if it was only a stick man so when they see something well done can relate to it so well. Anyway I like your style on your website. @Rohvannyn

I think that's a great idea, and something that is needed this year, little bits of goodness, like things he can eat, left anonymously on his desk now and then.
