Happy Thanksgiving

thanks2004.jpg Nothing says Thanksgiving like Charlie Brown missing the ball again. Damn Lucy. Damn her to hell! To all my U.S. readers, have a safe and happy holiday. Eat, drink, enjoy some football and try to keep the family dysfunctions to a minimum. Special thanks to all of these people, past and present. Thanks once again to you, my readers, for being a daily part of my life, for better or worse. Thanks to my family for everything. Thanks to my friends for listening, talking and making me laugh. Thank you, America. I am most fortunate to live in a country that allows me to indulge in pursuit in happiness freely; a country that allows me the freedoms to live, love, learn and laugh without fear. I'd like to get an early start on my annual holiday tradition of resolving differences with people I love, or reconciling with those I have strayed from. You know who you are. I'm making the first move. I'd also like to thank those who, over the past year, have played Lucy to my Charlie Brown. I've learned a bit about humility and perserverence. Just keep in mind that some day, I will kick that ball. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. [I added a timely song to the list today]

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Michele.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family also, Michele. Your blog is the first one I read each day,,,well, considering I have my list alphabitized it's also first on the list, but I've enjoyed your posts immensely. You have been one of the driving forces behind my own attempt at blogging.

Back atcha Michele!
You are always A great read,and I cracked up when I saw the Bay City Rollers on your list!Didn't they all wear like plaid knickers or something goofy like that?Hope you all have a good day.I am off to take the dog for a sunrise walk at the beach.

Happy Thanksgiving Michelle & also to your family! You are one of my daily sites as I really enjoy your writing. Good luck on the resolving differences tradition, I know it can be hard.

Happy Thanksgiving, Michele!

Hope you have a great holiday, Michele.

Happy Thanksgiving.

But for putting Alice's Restaraunt in my head, I will have to sneer at you now...SNEEEEERRRRRR.

Oh jeez, now I've got the sergeant at the recruiter's station rolling around in there.

Fine...you asked for it...

I don't want a pickle...
I just want a ride my motor-sickle...

Happy Thanksgiving, Michele! I, personally, am very thankful today for my big-boy-stretchy-pants. Bring on the grub!!

I hope you and yours have a wonderful day!

A very happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Michele!

Happy Thanksgiving, Michele!!!!

Have a good one, Michele - and to all the other fellow readers as well.

Happy Thanksgiving ... despite that Bay City Rollers entry.

Rock and Plaid ... it just ain't right. Not that they rocked, but they thought they rocked, which really just makes the whole thing kind of sad, much like when the Brady kids formed a groovy band (with costumes) so they could enter a talent show and buy their parents a silver platter for their anniversery with the winnings. They beat the Bay City Rollers if memory serves :P

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope all of you and yours get appropriately stuffed. :)

Happy Thanksgiving, Michele. ;)

I'd love to see that happen in a real football game.

Happy thankgiving eat well and dont over eat theres plenty of leftovers and turkey and stuffing and pumkin pie oh boy and remember next month is christmas and we will probibly do it again and as for A CHRITMAS CAROL how long would it have taken the CRATCHETS to cook a large turkey in a woodstove?
