Pumpkin Pie


If you're in the United States, have a lovely Thanksgiving Day. My favorite holiday for a number of reasons, not the least of which is turkey and baking and cooking and all those things I love to do -- but also because it's just a plain old secular holiday and you don't have to worry about guarding your tongue or worrying about offending anyone. Just be happy and give thanks for SOMETHING good in your life, because there's bound to be something. For me, there's lots, and despite my grumbling and whinging and whimpering through the year, I really do have it pretty damned good.

I have a nice house that's in good shape
I have a good job
I have a beautiful and brilliant wife who for some reason loves me
Our marriage is now legal in our home state
We have a full refrigerator
We're both healthy, as are our two cats and one dog
Our families are awesome

I'm sure there's more.

And there's this:

Have a wonderful, peaceful, and delightful day.
