Turkey over pork chops. Every day.
So, what am I thankful for this Thanksgiving?
I am thankful that I am not a turkey, but I am grateful that a turkey put its wing up, volunteering to grace my daughter’s family table in Michigan.
I am thankful we have been invited to share that table with this turkey.
I am thankful we can also be there Friday to eat turkey leftovers - which are always just as good as the original version and sometimes even better.
I am thankful that starting Saturday I can turn my full attention to my Christmas list. I hope you will soon be turning your full attention to my Christmas list.
I am thankful I was able to play about a dozen different golf courses this year, albeit without distinction - but also without injury.
I am thankful for 60 years of wedded bliss to Karen Young, who is not serving Thanksgiving dinner, which we all know would be pork chops.
I am thankful we are triple-vaxxxxxed, although we may be getting weekly or even daily boosters in the uncertain future.
I am thankful to the pandemic for quieting down long enough for Denny to produce two very successful music festivals last summer.
I am thankful for lots of great Cleveland Indians memories, all of which I will always guard with zeal, including the name Indians.
I am thankful for great neighbors on either side of our house who would be the first to lend a hand (but probably not money) if we needed it.
I am thankful for this, my 58th blog, and all the good folks who live for Tuesday and tell me to keep on keepin’ on.
I am thankful for having grown up in Princeton, New Jersey, perhaps the single most interesting town in America.
Did I mention I’m thankful I’m not a turkey? I’m also glad I’m not a pork chop bringing unhappiness to good people like me.
Thanks everyone. Happy Thanksgiving.
DY: In Just a Few Words is a blog that comes out when something needs to be said or every Tuesday - whichever comes first. Davis Young is a communications professional who adds 50+ years of experience and perspective to issues of the day. His emphasis in DY: In Just a Few Words will be humor (a touch of sarcasm here, a pinch of facetiousness there...). Once in a while, he will touch on something a bit more serious - but hopefully not too deep or depressing.
