I know I’m early, but I know people are going to be travelling starting today…

Thanksgiving Day is a unique American holiday that brings together this nation of all faiths and cultural backgrounds around a common theme of thanks. Traditionally, we gather with family and friends to reflect on the year past, and give thanks for the blessings and freedoms we enjoy. It’s a time when we stop for a moment in our busy schedules to share bounty, food and fellowship.

We need to be mindful that for lots of Americans it has been a tough year. Hard times can serve to remind us to be more thankful, and if you have a chance, reach out to someone less fortunate this week.

Also, many of the Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and Marines are away from home on Thanksgiving Day. I ask that we all keep them in mind as we gather around the table on Thursday. Please include a thought of gratitude in your grace for the freedoms they defend, and those we enjoy as a result of their dedication and sacrifice.

I want to thank those who take the time to drop by and read my chicken scratchings, I appreciate every one of you and all of your comments. I also appreciate the chance this blog has given me to meet both literally and figuratively so many outstanding people, whom I may not always agree with, but that I know I can have an intelligent conversation with!!!

I learn something from y’all every day…

Take care, be safe, drive safe, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh yeah, remember that whole globull warming thing I’ve been saying was bull for two years???

I told ya so… 🙂

  2. I was very fortunate while I was in the Air Force, I spent every Thanksgiving with my wife. I wasn’t always “at home,” but we were together. Sbe met me once, flying in to meet me, and we had Thanksgiving dinner at the Club. That base is now closed and the club has been razed, but it’s still there in my memory.

Think I read this earlier but couldn’t leave my tracks, but I will say Happy Thanksgiving, hope yours is the best it can be, I am certain that you have one or two that you were somewhere it didn’t seem like a holiday – but those always bring back to the mind the great ones with friends and family.
