I sit, on the eve of my favorite holiday, wondering what to write.

Instead of capitulating and catapulting into a lengthy life story, I’ll retire slightly earlier. I’ll give you the same opportunity. After all, the focus of a holiday should be on what brings you true joy.

Happy Thanksgiving. I wish you well, whether you celebrate or not.

At least eat something delicious. You deserve it.


Last week, I wrote:
Wednesday, November 16: “Expert Parent, in the making.” We can’t all know what diapers are for.

Friday, November 18: Friday Photo. Holy mackerel.

Saturday, November 19: “A Poem on Living.” It’s a bittersweet one.

Sunday, November 20: Quote by G. K. Chesterton.

Monday, November 21: Talked about the LDS temples, and temple recommends.

Tuesday, November 22: Answered Carrot Ranch’s prompt with “Speak to Me Only With Thine Dementia.” For the record, I’m not fond of the title.

Wednesday, November 23: Today.

    We don’t do that one here, but we should. Give thanks to food, it’s going up in price and there’ll be less of it in future.

    Have a happy holiday! 🙂

        True, Matt, too much of it is junk already. I fear it’ll only get worse. Bring back the hunter-gatherer!

            Perhaps chopping wood and fetching water is the job for you. It’s quite Zen, I’m told.

    With Jess working half day and us having no invitations, I am slow cooking BBQ Ribs, making Jack & Smoked Cheddar Sun dried tomato Mac & Cheese, a salad and blueberry pie (bought) for dessert. The pie is as such because I don’t like anything pumpkin and apple is my least favorite fruit pie. Have a swell Thanksgiving Chel.

      That’s nice to have it a bit further away from Christmas. My waistline doesn’t recover from the holidays till March….

    Controversial take – Thanksgiving and Christmas are the same holidays except one has food and one has food and presents. In fact, the Illuminati have conspired to have us be of good cheer on Thanksgiving so we open our wallets to start buying all the gifts we will give on Christmas, thus funding their plans for global conquest.

      I’ll buy it.

      Honestly, my unpopular take is that Christmas is completely a commercial enterprise. We’re all gleefully heading out to spend money on every person we know… 💰 💰

      It’s the sort of holiday that should spread, unlike Commercialism Christmas.
