Country Comments by Bill Robinson, Publisher

and ignorant I was to wish for a shorter blessing, a more truncated thanks. I know. I get it. I was a bad child. But I was suffering. I grew up with Pentecostals, and they do not have a short blessing in their lexicon. They are not like some denominations that see prayer as a fixed ritual; the Congregational Holiness go to town with a prayer, and they do not turn loose of one till they have wrung it dry. So I suffered. Sometimes, they would have a child do a blessing, and I would grow hopeful, because surely they would not have so many words

at their disposal, and older ladies would pat the good child when he was done and say “How precious.” But I came to know that this was only a warm-up to the main event, and that a grown-up, a deacon even, would take over, to close the show. What would happen, I once wondered, if I just broke down in the middle of the litany of things we were thankful for, and snatched a wing? I could be halfway across the pasture and into the deep woods before they ran me down. But it was too awful, the eventual consequences, to even talk about with nice people. So I suffered.

Now, it is one of those things I wait for all year. My uncle John does the blessing now, and he is a man of honor and brings to us a gentle message of great warmth and dignity. It is a simple prayer of thanks for this one day, for the grace that has allowed us to gather here for one more year. I think anyone, of any faith, or of no faith at all, would see great value in it. It is never too long, this message, though; the older and older I get, it is sometimes over much too soon. — Southern Living Magazine —CC—

Two of our grandchildren spent Friday night with us. Supper was on the table and usually Peyton and Carson say thanks together, however Peyton decided she wanted to say it this time. When she got finished, she started to eat then Carson spoke up and said, “Now it’s my turn.” Peyton was not too happy but let him go ahead. His prayer went on and on and on. I had my eyes open to see what Peyton was doing. During his prayer she started eating and I touched her hand and shook my head. Carson opened his eyes and told her to hush, that he was still praying. She looked at me and said, “I’m hungry!” He finally finished but his prayer reminded me of a story shared by Rick Bragg. He started out with one of the best statement I have ever read . . . “Before a waiting feast, eternal blessings are what a child endures and an old man learns to savor.” Never-Ending Grace When I was a little boy, the words seemed to last forever. It seemed like we were walking the Exodus ourselves, one paragraph at a time. Surely, I figured, thousands of little boys had starved to death between the words “Let us pray…” and “Amen.” The bad thing was, from where I sat, hands clasped but one eye open, I could see it all, and more than that I could smell it all, this wonderful feast laid out hot and steaming: Thanksgiving, my favorite day on the calendar, better than the Fourth of July, Halloween, and Presidents’ Day all lumped into one. The pinto beans bubbled in the battered pot, molten with the fat from big chunks of ham. Hot biscuits rested under a warm towel. Mashed potatoes, creamed onions, cornbread dressing, sweet potatoes, macaroni and cheese—all waited, each one sending its own perfume wafting through the Indian braves Cayser Nickell and Ty Mills ate Thanksgiving dinner together at the Allen house. And in the middle of it all sat the big turkey, its sides trickling with melted butter, specked with black pepper, so School last Thursday. close—why, a drumstick was just a side step and quick grab away—and yet so far. But it would all be cold as a Confederate statue on Christmas morning by the time we got any of it. Between me and all this bounty stretched what we have called and will always call “The Blessing.” It consisted, as near as I could tell, of reading the King James Bible front to back, then holding a discussion on its finer points. While I now see the beauty in those words and in this tradition, I was an ungrateful heathen back then, thinking only of my belly and my own little self. Before anyone fires off an angry letter pointing out the heathenness I have already confessed—I have learned that admitting to such things in some preemptive hope just makes people mad at you for robbing them of the opportunity to flog you unencumbered—let me say that I know how selfish

Sophia Foster and Kolter Hill wore their best feathers to the school’s Thanksgiving dinner.

Country Comments THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, NOVEMBER 22, 2012 - PAGE 3

W hen most of us think about Thanksgiving we think about faith, family and food. Dr. Dennis Swanberg brought all three of these into one great column. This is the perfect time to share it . . . T hese days it seems we are faced with the difficult of “overchoice”; we have so many options we don’t know what to choose. Folks can have two hundred television channels and not be able to find a thing to watch. We used to think it was great to have one or two channels. Remember when you could go to the magazine stand and the whole thing only had about twenty magazines? Now there are thousands of them. One of the few times we had a variety of choices when I was growing up was when we went to the cafeteria. My daddy and my mama love going to cafeterias. Just the other day, my daddy called me long-distance and said, “Hey, Den, uh, have you heard the good news?” “What’s that, Dad?” “At Luby’s, they’ve got the Luann Plus Platter now.” “The Luann Plus Platter?” “Yeah, it’s only for a month. You get the half portions. You get salad, your tea, and your dessert all for the price of one.” “Okay, Dad.” The next thing I knew, I had my family at the local cafeteria. My wife is always telling me, “You’re getting more Floydish all the time.” I can’t help it. It’s just sort of in my blood. I can still recall the things my daddy would say at the cafeteria. I remember the trays and the silverware. Daddy called it “hardware.” “Everybody get your hardware. Get your hardware now,” he’d command. If you didn’t get your hardware and got to the table without it, uh-oh. That upset him. Then he’d have to get the tea lady. “Uh, tea lady! Tea lady, right here – we need some hardware!” We’d be embarrassed and say, “Shhhh, Dad.” Dad’s second priority was, “Everybody drink water. Good night, I’m not paying what they charge for tea. If you want tea, drink tea at home. Everybody drink water.” I remember the people in front of us putting their tea back. It’s amazing how people listen to Floyd Leon. T hen my daddy would add, “And everybody leave the desserts alone. Good night, we don’t need any desserts. We’ve got melorine ice cream at home,” I don’t know if you’ve ever had melorine, but it was not ice cream. It was not like what we have in Texas called Blue Bell. It was not creamy. It was not even ice milk. It was some kind of vegetable shortening concocted to look like the real thing! But if you left a bowl of melorine out on the snack bar, it just sort of foamed up into a little wad. We’d get it in Neapolitan flavor. We kids would eat

the chocolate and vanilla and leave the strawberry for Floyd Leon. The strawberry portion reminded me of whipped-up Pepto Bismol. And it had about the same effect! Nevertheless, Daddy would eat it and say, “Isn’t this good?” Friends, it was nothing but foam. Once at the cafeteria, I was going through the line and saw a bowl of Jell-O cubes. I wanted that Jell-O so badly. The cubes were so colorful . . . so inviting. I asked, “Daddy, could I have some Jell-O cubes?” He said, “Good night, Den, you don’t eat Jell-O unless you’ve got a twenty-fourhour bug.” Come to think of it, I don’t think we ever did eat Jell-O unless we were sick. Jell-O is like creamed chicken on toast or chicken-noodle soup – comfort food. But I really wanted that Jell-O. M y mother heard dad’s comment and decided that she’d had enough. When moms have had enough, they have had enough. She looked at my daddy land said, “That’s enough, Floyd Leon. You are too hard on him, and I’m tired of it. We’re all tired of it.” Right there in public. A s soon as my mother turned her head, my dad looked at me and growled, “You better eat every cube of it!” I got the Jell-O on my tray. I don’t know why, but I sucked a couple of cubes out of the bowl. I thought it was funny. Daddy didn’t think it was funny. Whomp! Whomp! Those two cubes went choo, choo across the room. My daddy discovered the Heimlich maneuver right then and there. But this is the bad part: There was a man behind us I’d never seen before. He was the kind of man who had a big tummy, a western belt, and nothing but a prayer holding up his Levi’s. He chuckled and said to my dad, “Good hit! Good hit!” My dad looked at this man as if they’d been old highschool buddies and nodded, “It don’t hurt ‘em. It don’t hurt ‘em.” The man agreed. “He’ll thank you for it someday.” I have yet to thank my daddy for that one! Swanberg concludes writing that life is pretty much like a cafeteria line – it offers us many choices both good and bad. The Lord Jesus wants us to spend enough time with him in the Word and in prayer that we are sensitive to the good and bad choices in the cafeteria line of life. He wants us to make our choices in this life with real discernment. At the highest levels of the normal Christian life, we should be able to detect the faintest difference in things that please and displease our Lord. Like a husband and wife who have lived together for fifty years and know immediately without saying

to looking what the other thinks, so we should grow in intimacy in our relationship with our Lord Jesus. Let’s

go through the cafeteria line plate only what you want me of life with him as the only to have.” server and with the constant May your Thanksgiving taattitude, “Lord, put on my ble be filled with much more than just food Thursday.

Lady Mustangs Prep for Basketball Opener Coach Jeremy Strong expects to play up to 12 players each game this season

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Lady Mustangs will look to replace 4 of 5 starters from last season’s basketball team. Coach Jeremy Strong plans to use at least 10 players to split the playing time during the 2012-2013 campaign. Beyla Skelton is the lone returning starter for the Lady Mustangs. The 5-9 senior guard-forward will be joined in the starting unit by 5-8 senior forward Cheyenne Nickell. “Those two will be in the lineup,” said Coach Strong. “After that, I am not sure. I guess Charlea Leonard will be in there too. But, really, I believe we will play 10 to 12 players each game. We’ll go deep on the bench and used a bunch of girls each time we step on the court.” Three players have gametime experience from last season. Erin Warren (5-4, G), Sandra Howshar (5-9, F) and Cheyenne Nickell (5-8, F) were both used in reserve roles on last year’s senior-heavy squad. It’s likely all 3 players will figure into game minutes this year. Coach Strong will make playing time decisions based upon who steps up to impress the coaching staff over the next couple of weeks. The Lady Mustangs were planning two scrimmages during the Thanksgiving holiday break. The squad was set to visit Achille on Monday, November 19th. The day-long workout was to feature Soper, Stuart and Silo. “We’ll get quite a bit of work in there,” the coach said. On Friday after Thanksgiving, Allen was looking to host Centennial for a 2-way scrimmage. The event was to begin at 1 p.m. and last several hours. “We’ll handle it mostly as a regular scrimmage,” Coach Strong said. “But we will also do some clock management work too. That will be more like a real game situation. It will be out last big thing before our season opens. Allen High School’s regularseason opener will come at

home on Tuesday, November 27 th . The Lady Mustangs will host the arch-rival Calvin Lady Bulldogs in a 6:30 p.m. showdown. “We’ll start with Calvin Tuesday and play three games that first week,” the coach said. “We’ll play at Weleetka on Thursday and then play Asher on Friday. It will be a busy first week but I am looking forward to it. I still get excited just thinking about getting out on our home court in front of our fans. Right now, I am tired of watching everyone else play. I’m ready to watch our girls get out there and play some

games.” Allen has been voted as the Pontotoc Conference’s second-seeded team for the early December conference tournament. League coaches reviewed the squads and projected Stonewall as the favorite. Allen was selected as No. 2, ahead of No. 3 Asher and No. 4 Roff. “I’d say Stonewall should be the favorite,” Coach Strong said. “They return 3 or 4 starters and will be a tough team. Roff is always well-coached and they have a very good player on that team. But you can’t look past Tupelo, Vanoss

or Asher. I believe that pretty much any of these teams can win or lose on any given night. Several of these conference teams can beat each other so it should be an exciting season for all of us.” Allen will come into the campaign with a nice combination of size and quickness. That will allow the Lady Mustangs to play fast or slow. However, the lack of experience is the one concern of attempting a straight-out half-court offensive attack. “We may not be mature enough to run our half-court offensive set,” said Coach

Beyla Skelton and the Lady Mustangs look to open their 2012-13 campaign Tuesday night in the season opener against Calvin.

Strong. “That is something we’ll have to determine. We do have more length than any team I’ve had here. We’ll have a couple of girls pushing 6-0 who are athletic and can run the floor. But I’m thinking we’ll rely on our defense to make plays to give us fastbreak (scoring) opportunities. I’d say we’ll hang our hat on our defense and try to score off that. We’ll try to create some turnovers and get up the court to score off that.” The Lady Mustangs graduated 8 outstanding seniors from last year’s team. The 19-player squad replaced them with 8 freshmen. “I like our freshmen,” said Coach Strong. “I know they are excited about our first game. The other girls have been there and know what to expect. The freshmen don’t know yet, but will soon find out what it’s all about with the lights on and the fans in the stands. As a team, we all have a ways to go to get ready for Calvin. We’ll use our practices and those scrimmages and we set to go on November 27.” --(Editor’s Note: The Allen Mustangs of Coach Greg Mills will be featured in a basketball preview in next week’s Allen Advocate) --The 2011-12 Lady Mustangs ALLEN SENIORS (4) 00 Kyla McGee, 5-3, G 11 Erin Warren, 5-4, G 12 Beyla Skelton, 5-9, G/F 32 Cheyenne Nickell, 5-8, F --ALLEN JUNIORS (5) # Tosha Deatheridge, 5-3, G #44 Sandra Howshar, 5-9, F #42 Ashley Cross, 5-1, G # Nora Thompson, 5-5, F # 13 Brittany Graham, 5-10, F --ALLEN SOPHOMORES 2 #22 Jessi Merriman, 5-6, G/F # 30 Meagan Beavert, 5-6, F --ALLEN FRESHMEN (8) #11 Hannah Heck #20 Kennnedy Prentice #22 Alison Sells #24 Charlea Leonard #33 Miranda Raney #34 Alysia Evans #40 Taryn Wofford # Casey Deatheridge --Managers: Emilee Costner, Britten Wallace, Faith Caldwell

by Cleo Emerson LeVally In recent months we have observed many days in which the flag was flown. This month it was Veteran’s Day on November 11 th. Several years ago Franklin Winters wrote this story about a woman visitor standing in the White House in Boston who made a horrifying discovery. Her name was Mrs. Fowler. She could plainly see that all those historic emblems were surely rotting to pieces in their glass cases. She realized that in a few years—10, 20, 30 at the most they would have all moldered to nothing. As she gazed at those banners in the cases, she resolved to find some way to preserve those most precious historical emblems. In her childhood her parents had taken her on a trip to the continent In the Bayeux Library in France. She had seen tapestries that had been woven over a thousand years ago and they were still in a fine state of preservation. She reasoned why couldn’t the same process be applied to all of Uncle Sam’s standards? Once the idea grew, she took steps to prove it. She dropped everything and booked passage on a boat to France. She made

The flag was nothing but a fragile heap of rags but she was equal to the task in hand. It took her and eight girls eight weeks without interruption but they were able to restore the historic banner in perfect condition.

One Pharmacist’s View

THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, NOVEMBER 22, 2012 , PAGE 7

Be Careful What You Dream About

Some of you may not know that last week was a big event in my life. I had my hernia repaired. And what an epic surgery it turned out to be. Several weeks earlier, a cute little VA doctor whose name tag identified her as Teresa had “supposed” that the surgery would be done through a small incision in my belly button and that I would be numbed up before a few quick stitches were made to repair the pesky little problem. “Put to sleep? Probably not she gushed as it is indeed a simple surgery and as quick as a wink I would be sent home to Allen where in a day or two I would be as good as new—riding my bike.” I was pretty happy. A lot has happened since then to wipe the smile off my face. I went up on the appointed day and was quickly introduced to a group of different doctors— ladies and gentlemen of the medical profession who had different views and techniques when it comes to hernias. I never saw Teresa again. Folks on the 7th floor act as though she may not have ever existed. I was a little bit worried as I was taken through the double doors at 6AM on that fateful day and told to take a seat. Thus I found myself sitting in the herniated waiting room

with a few other hernia sufferers. We had little idea what we had gotten ourselves into. The VA is well organized and I was amazed when a girl with the big El Marko came in and asked me to show her some ID and then point to where my surgery would be. A large “X” was placed on my left side. We had been led into the operating area and IV’s had been started. To get through the screeners one had to be able to repeat their social security number several times and remember their date of birth. A pretty lady came by and said, “I’m going to put something in your IV that will make you sleepy. It won’t make you go to sleep, just relax you.” I never knew what hit me. I woke in a different room and upon demonstration that I was indeed awake I was discharged. One minute had passed. I wondered if I had had the surgery yet as I walked down the long halls up at the VA. “Wow! I thought as I rode on the wheel chair—these guys are really good. This operation doesn’t even hurt.” Pat eventually got my prescriptions filled and we somehow made our way back to Allen—and when my incision woke up, I did too.

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ “You deserve it!” You have probably heard this “line” from some commercial trying to tell you that you deserve the benefits of their product. Let’s think about it! Are we so good, hard working or righteous that we are entitled to certain things? The Apostle Paul asked the Corinthians, “What do you have that God hasn’t given you? And if all you have is from God, why act as though you are so great, and as though you have accomplished something on your own?” (1 Cor 4:7 TLB) As we enjoy the “Thanksgiving Holiday,” it might be good for us to consider what we deserve and what we have

that God has not given to us. Surely we need to remember that life and all things to sustain life, including the world in which we live, have been given to us by God. It is God who has richly blessed us with everything. By our own power, we can’t produce life, sustain or lengthen our lives. And, what do we deserve? Because of our arrogance in failing to submit in obedience to God, the only thing we deserve is death! “For the wages of sin is death….” (Rom 6:23) Yet God, who is rich in mercy has given us the opportunity to have life eternal by the sacrifice of His Son in our behalf. We do not deserve it, but “the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom 6:23) The Israelites prided themselves in being God’s chosen people. Through the years, they began to think they were something special. God warned them that when they enjoyed the wealth of the Promised Land, they must not begin to say in their heart, “My power and the might of my hand have gained me

Coat Drive Underway

this wealth.” (Deut 8:17) He warned them, “Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments.” (Deut 8:11) And, “You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth.” (Deut 8:18) This thanksgiving, let’s remember that we do not deserve anything, and all we have has been given to us by God.

To assist all you cooks with your Thanksgiving dinners, we checked with the Allen 1st graders on how to cook a turkey. Thanks to Mrs. Scroggins and Mrs. Laden for gathering their responses . . . Mommie and Daddy get an 11 pound turkey for Savannah Geyer. She thinks it comes from the grocery story but she doesn’t know for sure. When they get it home they just set it out until the oven beeps. They don’t stuff their turkey but she thinks they cook it for 12 hours at 10Âş. It is then shared with her brother, Mom and Dad. Joy Grigsby has a 2 pound turkey that her Mom gets from WalMart. Her Mom gets a cake pan and puts the turkey on the cake pan and then puts it in the oven. It’s not stuffed but cooked for 2 hours at 400Âş. It is then shared by the family. Mom goes to Wal-Mart to buy (she’s just guessing now) a 10 pound turkey for Kelsey Hurt. When they get it home she puts oil and chicken breast in it. She thinks they cook it for 5 minutes at 90Âş. She then shares it with Mom, Dad, Grandma, Pappa and Christopher. Lilly Matthews reports that sometimes her Dad goes to the woods and hunts for a turkey. He always hunts for the big ones. When they get it home they skin it, Dad cooks it with pineapples on it, then they eat it. Sometimes they cook it a little bit long – sometimes they don’t. Sometimes a little hot – sometimes a little cold. She shares the turkey with Mom, Dad, her brothers, and sometimes grandmas and grandpas and her uncles. Wal-Mart is where Lori Stidmon’s mom or dad gets their (she thinks) 5 or 6 pound turkey. First they take out the blood then roast it. Their turkey is stuffed with chicken and roast beef. She thinks it is cooked for 9 or 6 seconds at 6Âş. It is shared by her whole family. The 7 pound turkey at the home of Joni Thompson her mom got at Dollar General. After getting it home they put it in a pot and put it on the stove. They stuff it with “just stuffâ€? and cook it for 5 minutes at 7Âş. It is shared with Mom and Dad. Desiree Files has a 2 pound turkey that her grandma gets at WalMart. She buys two of them. When she gets it home she usually has to clean it up, then she puts the store-bought stuffin’ in there. She usually lets it bake for two days because she has a big family. It is shared by her Mom, Desiree and her Bubba, her Dad, Uncle Timmy, Uncle Scottie, Aaron and her cousins. Stoney Cully thinks her Mom gets their 6 pound turkey at the Dollar Store. They fill it with stuffing and put it in the oven with a jacket and shirt on it. It is cooked for 31 minutes at 40Âş. She shares it with her Mom, Dad, sisters and brother, Grandma and Papa. Mom goes to the Ada grocery store to get a 10 pound turkey for Olivia Wallace. After getting it home she puts it in a big pot and puts a temperature “thingeeâ€? in it – but wait, her big brother-inlaw skins it first. She thinks it is stuffed with garlic, then cooked for 5 minutes at 100Âş. It is shared with her sister, brother-in-law, cousins, aunt, Mom, two brothers, and her uncle. Aubrey Scott has a 20 pound turkey that her Grandma or Mom got at Wal-Mart. They stuff their turkey with meat and put it in the oven. It is cooked for 10 seconds at 12Âş and shared by the family. Dad hunts for the turkey that is served at Isaiah Merritt’s home. He doesn’t know how big it is because he never sees the turkey that his Dad gets. Dad always cooks it in the microwave. He doesn’t stuff it, he just gets it hot. He shares the turkey with his Dad and, if his Mom gets one, her too. Kaden Smith reports that sometimes they go out in the woods and his Dad gets one. It weighs 9 pounds. They take all the feathers off and suck the blood out, then put it in the oven. They stuff it with flavor stuff and it is cooked for 6 minutes at maybe 7Âş. It is shared by his family. Mom goes to the Allen Grocery Store and gets a 5 pound turkey for Chandler Wallace. They stuff it with meat and cook it for 12 seconds at 10Âş.

The first Thanksgiving - Our Version Mrs. Peay’s and Mrs. Britt’s 3 grade classes shared stories of the First Thanksgiving with us . . . The Pilgrims came to American December 11, 1620. On their first winter it was very rough they barely have food and 46% died after that winter but then spring came. There was a bunch of butterflies and flowers. And then an Indian came named Quanto. He taught the Pilgrims how to grow corn, wheat and barley and lived with them. The Pilgrims love the Plymouth and in fall they harvested the corn, wheat and barley and they had a Thanksgiving Party. It lasted three days and the men went hunting. They got deer, turkey and wild animals. And that’s how the First Thanksgiving was. Happy Thanksgiving! Braxton Castillo Once upon a time there was Pilgrims. They where getting off the ship and the Indians came to help them. Some Pilgrims died and there was a baby named Oceanus. They had a feast, they had a large special meal u8sually for a lot of people on a holiday or other occasion and they asked the three Indians. They said yes and they ate deer meat and they had enough for the whole week and this is the First Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving. Taylor Harrison The First Thanksgiving had to of been fun. It had Pilgrims, Indians and lots of thanks. It sounds nice. I would really, really rd

want to go there. Squanto showed the Pilgrims how to grow corn. About forty-six people died in the first couple of months. The Pilgrims came from England. When the Indians came they had a feast. The Pilgrims sailed in the Plymouth, Mayflower and Speedwell. The Speedwell was not as strong as the other ships. I feel sad for the Pilgrims. Justin Myers Once upon a time the King of a town made his people pray what he wanted to pray. The people were not happy. So they traveled far away from the King and hired two sailer men and their boats are named the Mayflower and the Speedwell. And the Speedwell had to be token home before any real damage could be done on the Speedwell. So the Mayflower set off by herself. And finally the Mayflower came close to land. The Pilgrims walked three times back to the Mayflower. Their winter was very bad, then spring had come and all the snow melted. Butterflies came, flowers gre3w. Then they had Thanksgiving dinner. Elizabeth Slosser Once upon a time there was the Pilgrims that lived in England. Their King told them not to pray to God but they wanted to. They decided to leave England. They built the Mayflower. They also built another ship, it was called the Speedwell. When they left England the Speedwell was weak. The captain had to get the

passengers off. The Speedwell did not make it. The passengers got very sick and kids got very scared. When they landed they got things ready. When they got in America the pilgrims had to work hard but they had gotten sick. Some died. The Indians came and helped them. The Indians told and taught them lots of things like hunting, cooking and they had a big feast and that’s how the First Thanksgiving happened. Happy Thanksgiving! Brody Wallis A long time ago the so called Pilgrims, from England, came to America on the Mayflower, which indeed was a very hard trip even some Pilgrims died, but most made it to America alive, and where they lived we now call it Plymouth Rock. Jacob Beavert On the First Thanksgiving, the Pilgrims came on the Mayflower to American. When they got there they were not ready for the cold winter ahead of them. After the cold winter some of the Pilgrims did not survive. The Indians help the Pilgrims so the father hunting for turkey, deer, birds and after the feast the Indians enjoyed it so much they stayed for three days and that’s why we celebrate Thanksgiving. Milani Rowsey The First Thanksgiving they had Indians help them and some of them died. A baby was born on water. Pilgrims had to walk a long way because the person who was over their country told them that they could not say what they wanted to say to God. They had to say what he said to God if they did not say what he said they would take them a way from

their homes and so they asked the person if they could leave so they did. So they walked a long time, their children cried many times and they wished they had never come and the tiresome ship and they was very poor and when children began to grow up they were not English. They talked Dutch and they were thinking about America. Speedwell’s passengers were given to her and they had a feast and people ended up staying for 3 days. The Indians came and they were nice Indians, and they came to help the Pilgrims and they celebrated Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims and the Speedwell did not make it because it was not strong and that is it, the end. Happy Thanksgiving. Saree Pegg Once upon a time the Pilgrims came to England. Their leader would not let them pray to God. They set out on the Mayflower and Speedwell. There was something wrong with the Speedwell, it could not carry the passengers. Fortysix percent of the passengers died so the Speedwell had to go back and the passengers went on the Mayflower the rest of the way. So the waves did not go easy on them. They had sailed for two months on the Ocean. A girl had a baby named Oceanus. The Mayflower had landed at last. But the children had been thinking of grass and flower and birds. It was cold in November. The people there did not see rocks and sand. The Indians came and they had a big feast. The Indians stayed for three days. They went away and that is the end. Happy Thanksgiving. Gobble, gobble.

The first Thanksgiving - Our Version THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, NOVEMBER 22, 2012 - PAGE 15

First Thanksgiving. Cheyenne Alexander Nearly five hundred years ago on Thanksgiving afternoon there lived Pilgrims who were very happy because they had everything they wanted until their king would not let them go outside. So they all went outside in a way that made the king very angry so he would not let them in and made them sleep outside. The next morning they had a Thanksgiving feast outside, all except the king. They all prayed before eating, then the Pilgrims got very mad so the king let them in and they were all happy, even the king. Dalton Craddock A long time ago, in 1620, they had a long journey. There were 102 people on the Mayflower. These are people we call the Pilgrims. They are about to sail to a new world that is call America. There may be pirates or hurricanes. The men walk along for miles and miles. Suddenly they see Indians. The men keep exploring. They find wonderful things. Cheyene Rene McCarn On November 9, 1620 the Mayflower came to Plymouth, England with 102 people on board. Pilgrims got on the Mayflower to go to America but first they were in Plymouth, England and when the Pilgrims got to America they thought the Indians were in the woods and they really ere because they saw the smoke in the jungle from where they were and then a friendly Indians saw the Pilgrims and came to say hi and his name was Samoset and he brought back 90 more Indians and Samoset spoke English. Heath Frederick Maybe it started in 1620, people were called Pilgrims and they had turkey, yams, gravy. There were lots of people there. Maybe it was in a country, maybe the United States. They invited lots of people and it all started in England. Lots of people on the Mayflower helped the people in England, that’s how they got helped. Lots of people from England came to America and lots of people also like lobsters and deer meat, goose, onions, pumpkin, corn bread, berries. The Indian kills a deer. That’s how they get to eat deer meat. They trusted a friendly Indian. The feast ends in 3 days. It started with a king. The Mayflower floats after nine long weeks. The first Thanksgiving was never forgotten. The Pilgrims and the Indians will not harm each other. In April the Mayflower sails back to England. Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving a holiday. When they ran out of food the men keep exploring. Bradley Howard In 1620 there were people called Pilgrims. They traveled to America. They traveled on a ship called the Mayflower. They ate turkey, gravy, and corn. And when they got there Indians killed a lot of them, then they got along. Will Kaminski On November 9, 1620 the Mayflower was on the ocean for 2 months. They had a harsh winter, half of them survived a day or two. They invited the Indians. Samoset brought 90 Indians. The least lasted 3 days. They played games. Men tested strength. They had some turkey, duck, chicken maybe, geese. That is what I think the First Thanksgiving was like. Luke Maloy The Pilgrims were told that the Indians would harm them and one hundred-two Pilgrims did not want to worship the church’s way so they sailed from England to America and they worshiped their own way and they sailed on the Mayflower and when they

got there they saw an Indian and ran away cause he was scared of Pilgrims and the Indians got closer every day and the Indians came one by one and they met and they were all friends and the Pilgrims were scared cause they would not have enough food for all of them. There were ninety Indians and a few Pilgrims were left but one Indian sent two Indians to go kill deer, turkey and go pick blueberries and they had a feast and the food from the feast lasted three days and everyone ate and slept. Paige Mayfield The Mayflower had 102 people on it. In 1620 the Pilgrims left England to go to America. It took 1 year to get all the food they planted and the buildings they built. A few Pilgrims were going out to find food. The Pilgrims saw their tents, then they went back to the Mayflower. Before they went back to the Mayflower the Pilgrims saw an Indian and the Indians could speak English. They had food, not much but they had some like yams, corn, water, and the water tasted gross. When the Indian and Pilgrims got together they had a feast. They played games, sang songs and ate. Brandon Riddle In 1620 there were people call Pilgrims. They read Bibles. One day the king sent spies to check. They caught the leaders. Then the next day they got on a boat to America. It was called the Mayflower. It was dangerous, some men died on the trip. They made it. The Pilgrims looked around, they were looking around. They looked around for miles then they saw Indians. The Indians were real scared. They ran and they looked more. The found a basket of corn. They went back to the Mayflower and ate and drank the sweet water. One day they thought to find somewhere to live. They found a spot where they could live. They started building houses. It would take weeks. One day an Indians came, he said welcome. They were surprised that the Indian knew English. The P8lgrims said you know English, the Indians said he learned from sailors. The next day he brought another Indian named Squanto who knew more English. One day they thought to do a harvest to celebrate. They invited the Indians. When Massonsoi came there were 90 Indians. They had deer and turkey. The Pilgrims worked harder and as soon as they finished they prayed. When they were done then it was three days of celebration. Lincoln made it a holiday. Ethan Roniss On the First Thanksgiving there lived some Pilgrims and Indians. A ship took the Pilgrims far away but the Pilgrims had no food, no water, no bathroom. But they had to make a house out of wood and sticks for a lot of Pilgrims. They invited the Indians over to eat for Thanksgiving day but they all had to eat the same stuff for three days. The water did not taste good to the Pilgrims but the Pilgrims did like it there to start with and they did not want to go back but the guy took the Pilgrims to America for the rest of their lives but some died in the Mayflower and some survived in the Mayflower and some Indians did not die but they all did not survive and it is sad when people die. Brasey Kaeann Rosell The First Thanksgiving took place in 1620. The Pilgrims and Indians celebrated for4 their shelter, food, and their water. The Thanksgiving feast lasted for 5 days and nights. The Pilgrims invited Massasoit to the feast. Massasoit promised to come and bring some friends, or ninety of them. So together they celebrated. At firs the Pilgrims were surprised

at how many Indians there were and didn’t have enough food for all of the people. So Massasoit sent some of his men to kill some deer and some other animals to feast on and for 3 days the food kept coming. The Pilgrims and Indians kept feasting until they were full of food like turkey, corn and so on. Many other Pilgr8ims sailed to Plymouth and started their life there too. Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving a holiday. Samuel Wallace The Pilgrims left Plymouth, England because the king declared that everybody must belong to him The king sent out spies to

their houses. He sent soldiers to arrest them, even their neighbors turned against them. They landed in America but they were scared because of the Indians they heard about and the Indians were afraid of white people. Samoset and Squanto helped the Pilgrims plant food, find deer and find berries. Massasoit, Samoset, Squanto and 90 other Indians and the Pilgrims have a feast. They eat deer, lobster, claims, yams, turkey, corn and potatoes. They played tons of games. The food lasted 3 or more days to eat the leftovers from the feast.

Maddox Wofford When the Pilgrims lived in England in 1620 they had a king. The king declared that everybody must belong to his religion. The Pilgrims wanted their own religions so they tried to hide but they got caught and the king killed most of the Pilgrims so a lot of all the Pilgrims left on the Mayflower and they died from a sickness but most of them lived and found America. Then the Indians found them. They helped each other, then had a big feast and sang songs. The feast went on for three days. Parker Wright
