Thanksgiving 2014



It has not been a good week - again. No one believes justice has been served in Missouri, and Bill Cosby will just have to lay low for awhile (he should probably contemplate hibernating for the winter), but it is ending in a nice way with two days away and a chance to get together with loved ones.

So thank you for the job, the continuing opportunity to serve those in need of our assistance.

Thank you for the house we live in, and thanks to the three cats who graciously allow us to live with them.

Thank you for the chance to get away, relax, eat, drink, and eat some more.

Thank you for the person who chose to share her life with me much more graciously than the cats.

And, in the words of the late Percy Kilbride who bowed his head over a bountiful feast in The Egg and I: “Much obliged, lord!”*

*I could not find a clip of this scene on YouTube, otherwise that would be here in this spot!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!

(And, oh yes, thank you for reading!)

Happy belated Thanksgiving to you both. Thanks too for the The Egg and I reference. It brought a smile to my face. Whenever I see or hear his name I can hear his voice so clearly saying one of two things; "Much obliged, Lord" or "Gonna have to fix that one of these days".

Thank you Harper's Keeper for your Percy Kilbride memories. I finds myself saying the same thing as I walk around the house.
