I had to laugh when I came across this illustration of my favorite Disney character. It reminded me of just how ludicrous things are these days. That anyone would disguise themselves as a turkey! Oh my, it's open to so many punch lines!

But not today. It's Thanksgiving eve. My dinner prep is finished until tomorrow and I've had some time to reflect on what I'm thankful for this year.
~ I'm still here and I still have Hub; a wonderful home and a degree of financial security.
~Though scattered, family.
~ Friends, including my cyber friends. From Dave Oliveria at the Spokesman's Huckleberries Online who helped me get started in this wacky world of blogging to those like Word Tosser and Driving Chairman Bao who've become personal friends. Not to be forgotten in this internet web of intrigue are my Facebook friends. People I rarely see but who I can keep up with by the click of a mouse.
~ Bacchus. I miss him terribly, still, but if he had to leave us I'm thankful it happened the way it did.
~ His medical team.
~ Mine.
~ My readers who keep coming back even when they totally disagree with me!
Have a wonderful, safe Holiday and in your thoughts and prayers ask that we might have even more to be thankful for in the coming year.

Thanks for counting me in Dogwalk -even though I am last on the list.;-) I am one of those readers who keep coming back even when I totally disagree with you. Happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful I am walking - having broke my tibia almost 3 months ago. I recovered quite nicely without surgery but not without the fight. Tubbs Hill would be major right now for me, but like I said, I am walking.

We had a great Thanksgiving. Thanks.

Stebbi, my gosh! I hope you continue to heal quickly. I'm surprised to learn you are one who returns but I'm glad!
