DY: In Just a Few Words (#58)

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.
