Happy Thanksgiving

I am so looking forward to this Thanksgiving. After spending the last one in hospital having to eat my...and I use this term VERY loosely...turkey dinner from the hospital cafeteria, there is nothing as tantalizing as my wife's turkey. Oh and spending it with my family in the ancestral manse will be nice too.

Pie...did I mention pie? I will probably eat myself to a near comatose state today. Oh well, diets are meant to be destroyed on Thanksgiving, and mine will most likely resemble the old car at the County Fair that you can hit with a sledge hammer five swings for a buck.

Honestly though, I am thankful. Scratch that. I am THANKFUL that I am here; I am healthy; and most of all surrounded by those I love.

So here's hoping that all of you who are celebrating today have a Wonderful Thanksgiving and let's remember all the things we have to be thankful for.

Last, but by no means least, I would like to give my thanks to those men and women who are getting their Thanksgiving dinner from a mess hall or a galley while they serve their country so that the rest of us can enjoy our day in freedom. So to all of you in uniform, I am THANKFUL for you, your service and your sacrifice.
