I am fascinated with all things social engineering from the 1950s, and especially the 1960s, because I am at an age where I remember the exact playground I was standing on when I learned that Bobby was killed.

Today I looked up the Instructional Video titled Dining Together-1950, and then I did a little editing, to bring that video up-to-date.

This is a story of a holiday and home living in a declining economy. Helping make ready a celebration Diving dumpsters is part of the fun life for many people today. Especially for one of the nicest days of the year – Thanksgiving. There is happiness in the air, and the smell of turkey thankfulness and gratitude, even though people are struggling. Mmmmm, that does look good. Thanksgiving is a day for the best of everything. And friends our parrot invited to dinner.

We remember the pilgrims had only rough tables on which to serve the first Thanksgiving feast,
yet it was shared with friendy indians [not quite sure what to say here]

It is good to share a holiday with friends dumpster with other poor people. And it is good to have friends a parrot who likes to come to live in our home. Good manners parrots make people happy, and good [parrot] table manners make eating together a happy time. We are thankful for our home [and our parrot] and our happy meal. We are glad we have a good parrot table manners and know whereat to do with a napkin, how to use scrape the bird feathers off of a spoon first in and eating soup easily, without noise.

It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without turkey [or a delicious ham steak with glaze from a dumpster]. We know mother knows how to cook it, and father knows how to carve it. It is fine to sit-up and watch it being carved. You would know this is a holiday plate.

At the first Thanksgiving dinner the indians didn’t eat turkey with a fork, but it is easy to learn to use one the right way to take small mouthfuls. And how to butter and eat bread in small bites so we never have to talk with food in our mouth. It is good to have learned to chew with lips closed and know when to take a drink. Good table manners keep our meals happy meals and those who eat with us happy. Learning to use a knife the right way takes practice, yet each time we do it becomes easier.

What to do? with a knife and fork even when finished using them is part of eating well. Holidays are days to Be glad, and all good manners are ways to make people glad. We like to offer help, or to help when asked. It is nice to talk with others, and to know when to wait and listen. We are glad to eat neatly without … [?] Holidays are fun. And it is good to be part of a celebration, it is fine to have learned so much, and to have so much in hour home to make holiday celebrations happy. Now could you wish for more? The End.

We are so blessed today to have had a delicious and nutritious meal. Our scavenged meal was a wonderful gift for which we are so very fortunate and thankful. We wish that there was a way, so that every person could eat a delicious and nutritious meal on this day.
