Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m no good at meaningful thankful posts. I come off sappy, maudlin or cynical, at least to my way of reading it but I am going to make an attempt to list the things I am right now thankful for.

1. Modern medicine & VA insurance. Because of both my father can go bike riding, running, swimming, fishing and even wrestle with his grandkids and still have money to live on.

2. The mini van. OMG! The trip down was so much nicer than in the Cruiser. I loved my Cruiser but it was so crowded the past couple years on the drive to FL. I had none of the clausterphobic feel I’d had last year.

3. Internet being like crack. My husband is still employed because even when forced to economize the majority of people will cut cable before giving up their internet fix. It’s become almost as necessary as electricity.

4. My little demons who keep life from getting dull and routine

On the non Thankful side I’m not wild about certain developments.  When did the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade become “Parade – the Musical”? what is with all the musical acts? I want to see floats and marching bands, not singers standing still. If the casts from Cats is going to perform in the Macy’s Parade then they should have to do it while marching!

I hope you all have a happy day and a good weekend!
