A goofy Thanksgiving to all!
Happy Thanksgiving, Blog Guy!
Thanks, and the same to you and to all my readers.
Me? I’m feeling very blessed to be surrounded by my dear family and great friends.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, of course you have to say that, but specifically, what are you thankful for right now, this minute?
Oh. Well, I’m thankful that I live in a country where nobody can force me to watch Charlie Sheen or listen to accordion music or eat Brussels sprouts.
That’s good. And what else?
I’m thankful for bountiful gaffes, such as “Oops,” and the “Happy Birthday” to Elvis and “I got all this stuff twirling around in my head.”
I’m thankful that because the Republican presidential hopefuls are such good sports, I’m able to slap together a goofy, food-themed Thanksgiving blog item and then go enjoy the best meal of the year.
We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing…
