Likely my favorite holiday. Cooking, eating, drinking with family and friends. No pressure, a lazy day, a day to catch your breath and a time to reflect on the things we are thankful for.
I won’t rant about the insipid commercialism that lurks on the morrow. Better minds and voices than mine are on it. I cheer them on.
Today is a time to relax and just for fun renovate the blog. Yeah it is kinda lame, but I can sit quietly this morning and goof around a bit before the cooking starts in earnest.
Trying out some new formats and tools. There will surely be some gaffes and missteps but it will all get sorted out eventually…
Paraphrasing Winston Churchill, we can enjoy Thanksgiving because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.
For them I am eternally thankful.
