It's Your Turn!

We Canadians had our Thanksgiving Day in October. Now, today is the day for our American friends to give thanks, eat great Thanksgiving dinners, and enjoy the company of family and friends.

Enjoy the day, folks, be safe, and remember that while all of us have every right to discuss and try to fix what is wrong with our world, we also have lots to be thankful for.

I'm thankful for you, my American friends. Thanks for visiting my corner of the world.


  1. Thank you. I am also thankful for you Canadians, and for the country itself and the example I wish we'd pay more attention to down here.

    Peace and good things to you today.

  2. I am thankful for you, atavist. It's been a joy to visit you, and to have you visit me, with such an interesting exchange of ideas.

    (By the way, I like the picture of the turkey at the top of the post. My beloved Canadian mother once made a leg of lamb for Thanksgiving here in America, which annoyed my cousins to no end.)

  3. Thank you, both. I didn't have any turkey yesterday, in fact I had left-over pizza for supper. It was one of those nights. Don't you feel sorry for me?

    Seriously, I hope you both had a great time, scrumptious food, wonderful company, and I'll catch up with my turky-eating at Christmas time.

  4. One of the many things we could learn from Canada is having Thanksgiving on Columbus Day.
    It would be a good time to remember the hard work and sacrifices that made it possible for the first trip to The New World, even if Columbus was the textbook example for modern liberalism:
    He didn't know where he was going when he started out, didn't know where he was once he got there, and did it all on someone else's money!

  5. Galt, I love your comment about Columbus. If you ask me, that description could fit numerous people (like my brother). It made me laugh in its truth.
