Thanksgiving Musings—bits of purloined levity

There is always something to be thankful for.
• I became a true Michigander and went hunting recently. Shot my first turkey. Scared the crap out of everyone in the frozen food section. It was awesome though.
• It takes me three weeks to stuff the turkey. To be prim and proper, I shove it in through the beak.
• Some people serve red wine with their Thanksgiving dinner. Some people serve white. My preference is lots of.
• I tell the guests that they can tell when they have eaten too much—they will have to let out their bathrobes.
• Thanksgiving dinner is going to be special this year. Mom says that I don’t have to sit at the card table.
• The next day is Black Friday. In America, people trample on each other for sales one day after being thankful for what they have.
• Life is full of give and take. Give thanks and take Nothing for granted.
• We make a living by what we get. We make life by what we give.
• We must find time to stop and thank the people who made a difference in our lives.
• There is always something to be thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends and relatives. Eat and drink in moderation, but give thanks abundantly.
