I’d like to wish all who visit this blog a Happy Thanksgiving!

I don’t write much personal stuff here since this is very public, and I’m not. Without going into much detail I am very thankful for my family, my health, my dogs, my community. Thanksgiving was a very Big Deal in my family when I was growing up, more so than Christmas. I have wonderful memories of helping my grandmother prepare and cook the meal, of relatives gathering, and playing with cousins not often seen.

Want to know what I’d like to see on some future Thanksgiving? No news stories about traffic jams, monumental airport screw ups, or folks camping out for a $10 big screen tv on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

And I will not be shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. That’s “buy nothing day”.
