Happy Thanksgiving!

In spite of 2020 being the long punch in the gut it’s been, we still have much to be grateful for. I hope everyone enjoys the day because, no matter what side of the political aisle you fall, we are all abundantly blessed by simply living where we live and the opportunities we have to express ourselves and let our opinions fly.

A blessed day to you and yours.

  6. I hope that all of you enjoyed a happy Thanksgiving with your families. Unfortunately I did not.

    Thanksgiving was the only holiday my father really celebrated. Oh, he commemorated Christmas, Easter and Independence Day, but Thanksgiving was special to him. It was all about family.

    Every year we would have a feast–turkey, ham, baked potatoes, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, Ambrosia, Waldorf salad, and buttered baked buns, with his signature sage ground meat with mushrooms Pepperidge Farm dressing.

    It was always a feast. He passed away in 2003. My mother and I tried to keep on the tradition. I would order turkey and ham from the New Braunfels Smokehouse. I would help her with the baked and sweet potatoes and buns, but I left the Ambrosia and Waldorf salad to her.

    She passed away on July 30. So there was no Thanksgiving this year. One brother lives in Maine, about 3,000 miles away. Another brother lives in Hutto, about 500 miles away. My sister moved back down here and lives only a few blocks away, but what were we supposed to do? Make a feast for two?

    I spent the holiday alone, for the first time in my life. I ordered out, and watched as the Dallas Cowboys got completely destroyed by the Washington Football Team (they will always be the hated Redskins to me).

    I hope the rest of you enjoyed Thanksgiving.

  7. Sorry I’m late but yesterday was… I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! My thanks was that we still have places like to have a rational discussion about politics.

  11. Thanks, Dustin, I am. Gusty winds here, so my yard is carpeted in a gorgeous sea of orange and gold and red leaves under a brilliantly blue sky. Thankful for even something as mundane as the view out my window.

  12. Lurker….nice post, although where I visit in Chicago, it’s best NOT to attract attention putting giant red bows on brand new cars.

  13. Also I hope Mack Brown has had a great Thanksgiving and puts away his voodoo dolls. This is getting old.
