Thankful Thanksgiving Thursday.

I’m joining in the Thankful Thanksgiving posts on Blogville because I want to. I really have a lot for which to be thankful.

I’m thankful for my peeps who took me in when I needed it, loved me and made my life great. I had a much better life than would have been expected from a product of a Mexican puppy mill. I’m also thankful that They rescued my sisters, Kaci and Kali who were both at one time in a kill shelter on death row.


I’m overwhelmed by you, the residents of Blogville. Two months ago, I was told that my cancer spread and that I had 1 to 6 months left. You guys came together and held the Highland Games a month ago. It’s one thing to have a tribute-it’s another to have it while you’re still around. The tears are still rolling down my beard. I really meant my thank you for that-for those who haven’t seen it yet-

I also am thankful for my boyfriend, Stuart. Who says it is too late in life to find love? I’m sorry that this post doesn’t meet my curmudgeonly standard, but it is what it is.

I’m gonna hand this over to Kismet, MY parrot. Go for it Kismet-


I don’t know why it is, but Kismet hides every Thanksgiving.

About Kismet

I'm a 16 year old Indian Ringneck parrot curmudgeon in New River, Arizona in the wild west country. If you're a sunflower seed, you're dinner.

  1. Wishing you a great Turkey Day Kyla! Tell your peeps if they cut some white meat from close to the bone under the breast, it will be low fat and far enough away from any seasonings to upset your tummy!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Kyla, and all your peeps.

  3. Does Kismet think he’s part turkey….BOL!

    We love ya, Kyla. What can we say. We look at you everyday….well, the number place with your picture that we have hanging on the carport! Have a great Thanksgiving, girlfriend.

  4. Loved that speech – had me own tears rolling down my grey beard too! Happy Thanksgiving to you – I’m sure you can get Kaci and Kali to distract Kismet whilst you nibblle on a bit of turkey, can’t you?

  5. Happy Thanks Giving Kyla you are amazing!xx Speedy

  6. I’m thankful that I found your blog and I’m thankful for you, the wise and beautiful scottie-lady. And I’m really thankful for every day with you. Bet your Kismet knew that my mom reads your blog and disappeared before my momma sings the “I-want-a-parrot” song in my dad’s ear :o) Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

    • We love you also and hope all your recent health issues improve dramatically. Kismet says that next November and December she might visit you because you don’t have Thanksgiving in Brittany. You do celebrate Christmas and she’ practicing for that “Je ne suis pas une oie .” “Je ne suis pas une oie .” “Je ne suis pas une oie .” “Je ne suis pas une oie .” “Je ne suis pas une oie .” “Je ne suis pas une oie .” Maybe your mom doesn’t want a parrot after all.

  7. Kyla…Thank you for being such a great furpal…thanks to your whole family for being our friends. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  17. I know all too well those feelings of gratitude your family has right now that Kyla has gotten to enjoy Thanksgiving with those that love her the most!

    For me, when I look back over the year of the new friends that I’m thankful to have gotten to know, you all come right to my mind. I’ve enjoyed getting to know you, and have appreciated your friendship, and always kind, thoughtful and supportive and fun comments on my blog that have made me laugh when I needed it, and have reminded me that I’m not alone. Just as you are not.

    I hope you had a good Thanksgiving, and are enjoying your weekend too!!

  18. Kismet is thankful you’re around to do the honours without him šŸ˜‰

  19. Kyla – We are so very thankful to have you in our lives, too! You were one of our first friends when we started Scottie Mom. We look forward to each and every one of your posts. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Much love, The Scottie Mom.
