Misfortune shows those who are not really friends.
No sign of Charlie Brown anywhere near this poor, lonely kite trapped in the power lines down by the Cenotaph here in Hobart. It strikes me as a most apt image for this weeks Theme Thursday.
You see, I have been informed that this week's Theme Thursday has been cancelled! Yes, cancelled!
Apparently there is some odd little holiday called Thanksgiving. I can see why the fellows in the funny hats would want to say thank you for a delicious meal of turkey and yams! As to the question of whether the inhabitants of the New World - be it the Americas or Australasia - would want to thank Europeans for the changes they wrought, I am less certain.
In the absence of a theme, I am like the kite pictured above: dangling and without purpose...
