Well, it’s been another quiet week up here on the mountain, my little slice of heaven.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a time to reflect on everything we are thankful for.
As you go about your day, take a moment and be thankful for the men and women who came home from the last war.
Be thankful for your family and friends, those people who understand you and accept you as you are.
Be thankful for the roof over your head, and the food on your table; many aren’t so lucky.
Take the time to be thankful for those that are working this day: doctors, nurses, police officers, and fire rescue folks that are standing by in case of an emergency.
The thanks shouldn’t end with the meal or the day. Every day, we should be thankful that we live where we do.
I have been to many countries, and though we have our troubles here at home, I would much rather live here than any country I have had the pleasure of visiting.
If you’re near a truck stop and are so inclined, go by and ask a professional driver to dinner.
Those men and women stay away from home for weeks at a time, hauling the things that make our lives better, and most don’t get this time with their families while they make sure yours has everything you need.
This is the beginning of the season for good will towards men.
I believe this should last all year, no matter one’s faith, color, creed, gender, or sexual orientation.
I will be enjoying the company of Larry and Moe tomorrow, along with Allen, though I will probably have to go by his cabin and drag him out.
Down in town at the local market, Steve was busy checking out those last minute folks rushing in looking for the ingredients for tomorrow’s meal. He always has a kind word or a joke for those he knows, and of course, I like giving him a hard time. But, he gives as good as he gets and is always good for a laugh.
I would like to wish everyone a safe,peaceful, and happy Thanksgiving tomorrow.
Well, that’s all the news for the week. Bye for now.
