I have a hard time believing Thanksgiving is here already! I've been wondering what happened to September and October and, all of the sudden, December's almost here.

Its cliche and traditional to sit around and think of all the stuff you're thankful for...and I think I'm lucky enough to have a pretty long list. I won't bore you with that here. But I do want you to know that I'm thankful for each and every one of you. Why you read, IM, email, leave comments and link to me, I'm not always sure, but I appreciate the fact that you do. I have always said that I've got the best readers, the best friends, in the world. When I'm running through that list of stuff, that list of things I'm genuinely thankful for, I assure you that you're all on it.

I leave you with one of my truly favorite songs. It may not seem completely appropriate but there are a couple lines that seem about right. Please right click, save as, and have a wonderful, safe holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving, my friend! I, for one, am thankful to have "met" you and your lovely wife. You are both, clearly, good folk. Have a great day, you two.

It's past 1:30 am in the morning where I'm at, and my mom is still up, and she is mad!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, Chris!

Oh, please! We're the ones who are thankful -- for the laughter you provide.

I can't wait to listen to the song when I get home!!

If that's Mona Lisa and Mad Hatters by Elton John, I'm not downloading it. Because I already have it as one of twenty songs I listen to in order.


Glad all is well. Hugs to you and Beth.

Thanks for giving us a great song - it's my first time hearing it, and everytime I hear 'older' Elton John, I think, 'I really have to listen to more of this.'

So thankful to have met The Cactus Family - hope you've had a great day!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Please be careful if you venture into any mall or department store today. I fear for your safety. LOL

Dude--- I'll tell you where September and October went--- you were working TOO MUCH. I have annointed myself your fairy godmother of fun. I will be perusing your blog carefully for much recounting of FUN and if there is too much work .. I shall smite thee with a Nerf bat. Party on!

You wonder what happened to September and October? I'm wondering what happened to the 80s!
