Cross-Country Connections: Thanksgiving

Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Thanksgiving.

Note: This past week Mom was in Minneapolis for the long Thanksgiving weekend.

From me and Mom in Minneapolis, Minnesota:

On Saturday morning, Mom, the Hubby and I went to breakfast at the Seward Community Cafe in south Minneapolis. There were hand outline turkeys all over the place in celebration of Thanksgiving. This one called to us. Although…there’s something ironic and cruel about using a Thanksgiving turkey to imply the phrase “Live long and prosper”.

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland: 

My husband, in-laws and dog in front on the Maryland State House in Annapolis, MD on cold, windy Thanksgiving.

    …that “Spockey” actually does a pretty good job of capturing Leonard Nimoy’s expression…I take it that’s the planet Vulcan exploding in the distance….Live long and prosper, indeed, Spockey!

      Ha – Spockey! Oooo…we missed the exploding planet reference. Hmmm…Would an exploding Vulcan be visible from Earth?

    On second glance…more likely an exploding no parking sign…

    I think it is a Star Trek turkey: the communicator pin and just the two colors of the guys who always get whacked. And the face does indeed look like Spockey.
