Happy Thanksgiving

The turkey is digesting, the gravy congealing. There's a football game on somewhere, and my boys are wreaking their furry havoc. Thus another holiday draws to a close. Now it's on to Christmas shopping!

I'd like to take this opportunity to list a few things I'm thankful for this year before I turn my attention to the Black Friday ads:

1. I'm thankful that we as a nation came together to show the rest of the world that we reject the direction our nation has been traveling in these past eight years.

2. I'm thankful that we have a president-elect who is capable of speaking in clear, concise English to relay common sense and practical answers and doesn't become a joke every night on late-night television.

3. I'm thankful that no one other than the turkey was harmed in the making of our thanksgiving. (Sorry, nameless turkey. You sure were delicious.)

4. I'm thankful I was able to purchase a house this year and fix it up just the way I want.

5. I'm thankful to still have a job.

6. I'll be really thankful if I hit it big at the casino Saturday night!

I hope all four of you, my loyal readers, had a very pleasant day with your loved ones.


  1. I'm thankful that President-Elect Obama pronounces, "Nuclear" properly. I don't think I could handle four more years of that word being butchered during the State of the Union Address.

  2. I'm not sure I could handle four more years of most words being butchered by a President. Or betcha! Yep, fool us once. We won't get fooled again. Most of us. I'm really sad that I have to work with those who are in the minority.
