A Gratuitous Special Edition

Greetings pre-holiday revelers!

I plotted a short story Sunday for this week’s post. But I forgot next week is American Thanksgiving. And my husband presented me with a list of goodies for Thanksgiving dinner. And the list for next week promoted me to kitchen captain—no shipwrecks allowed. And mia famiglia presented me with alternate plans of a gratuitous nature to celebrate this week, e.g. we screwed off and enjoyed a good time. Tis the season.

So I’ll save the short story for after the holiday.

This special edition’s music comes from Amber in Wisconsin, who requested the Batman theme song. Amber this one’s for you. I’m manning the Bat Phone. 😉

And because my better half inspired my playing hooky each night this week, Mr. Cranium, this one’s for you. My Favorite Things. Take it away, Ms. Andrews.

To those of you celebrating next week, happy Thanksgiving. To those of you elsewhere on our lovely planet, have a wonderful weekend.

Until next week my friends.




About Fannie Cranium

Writing since she could first hold a pen, Tracy Perkins formed her alter ego, "Fannie Cranium" at the suggestion of her husband. Tracy understands smiling makes people wonder what she’s been up to.

    two more different songs I can’t imagine! Love them both. Good call, thumbs-up on the hooky, and Happy Thanksgiving to you, friend. Good thing turkey is gluten free 🙂 What else will be on your table?


    • Liz–I found out the hard way last year that turkey is not gluten-free. The brining solution contains gluten. So I had to order a gluten-free bird.

      On the table this year is ratatouille, mashed potatoes, gravy (for the non-gf types), cranberry sauce, my husband’s family’s special recipe for a sausage, rice dressing, green bean casserole, and more. And the chocolate bourbon cake. . .my family loves it. There should be about 30 of us.

      How about you?
