Happy Thanksgiving!

Tomorrow will be a day of family and food, so I don’t anticipate blogging.  This, therefore, is my Thanksgiving post, which will be a very simple one indeed:

I’m thankful for my family, my friends, my (and their) health, my home, my physical community, my virtual blog community, my country, my American military and my freedoms.  I am a very, very, very lucky person.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

The picture, one I selected randomly from the US archives, is a reminder of a time when the nation took Thanksgiving very seriously.  Nowadays, the only song my kids now is a humorous one told from the perspective of a worried Turkey.  Sigh….
