Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. These are tough times, and there is much uncertainty about how our lives and fortunes will unfold in the days and months ahead. I wish you all the best and hope that all of us will always have much to be thankful for. We Canadians enjoyed our Thanksgiving turkey several weeks ago, but our thoughts are with you as you celebrate yours with family and friends.

It occurred to me that with the inevitable connection between Thanksgiving and turkeys, we might seek ways every Thanksgiving not only to have a turkey on every table, but to find ways to remove those other types of turkeys (the officious busybodies who, while claiming to have all the answers, screw things up for the rest of us) from political office.

Wouldn't that be nice!? Then we could all be doubly thankful.


  1. What a warm and gracious post!

    Sorry I missed your T'day.

    May you always have what you need, friend.

  2. Thanks, Jean! The sound you hear is us clinking our wine glasses in a Thanksgiving toast.

  3. This is a true saying, and worthy of all acceptance...Especially that last bit about the "other" turkeys!
    Many thanks.
