A Very Happy Thanksgiving To All!!!

I take keyboard under hand to wish all who visit here the best of wishes as we begin another holiday season. There is so much for which we Americans must be thankful. Feel free to list any of special personal noteworthiness.

I thank God Almighty for my beautiful wife, for my beautiful daughter, for my beautiful step-daughters. I thank Him for having given me life in a country that is the best the world has to offer. I thank Him for the family from which I came, and the family into which I entered through marriage. Everything else is gravy.

Indeed it is. Everything after my family is even less than gravy. Of course, I am thankful to be gainfully employed, too. We know far too many who have lost their jobs.

I am thankful for my health. Death and severe illness has surrounded us of late, approaching death for a couple. That I am healthy, even robust, at my age, is something for which I am profoundly grateful.

And, of course, for sparring over nonsense like politics with people like you Marshall. Obviously I take it seriously enough, even if I don't take myself seriously at all. But, like you said, it's all gravy (even though I, personally, don't like gravy).
