|David, day after Thanksgiving
I don’t know about you but I have several things to be happy for. A great wife who is an incredible partner helping me through trying times, four kitty kats that are a riot to watch, three fantastic kids that grew up to be outstanding citizens, five awesome grandchildren who are just wonderful, and four great-grandchildren who are spectacular.

Who could ask for more unless you are a frustrated progressive living amongst an active hive of radical conservatives in Arizona.
And here are some Thanksgiving sayings you might be interested in:
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. ~Erma Bombeck
Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds. ~Theodore Roosevelt
Thanksgiving is America’s national chow-down feast, the one occasion each year when gluttony becomes a patriotic duty. ~Michael Dresser
Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way. ~Native American Saying
So let me leave you with a You Tube video (below) by progressive Keith Olbermann featuring Sarah Palin pardoning a turkey some 3 years ago when she was Gov. of Alaska. It is hilarious with Olbermann’s commentary and Palin’s usually stupid remarks. To begin with, Palin is standing in front of a turkey killing machine with a man in the process of doing a gobbler in. It also has a short vignette of the fiasco several years ago on the WKRP television sitcom where turkeys are dropped live from a plane.
