Happy Thanksgiving


Blogging has been light to non-existent this week. I have the entire week off and I've been engaging in some of my favorite pastimes. Reading, watching football, reading (I like reading), watching movies and doing as little as possible. What I like to call "The Perfect Vacation".

Tomorrow we go over the river and through the woods, literally to grandmother's house we go. Not my grandmother mind you, my kids' grandmother, my Mom. Haven't been to Thanksgiving in the ancestral lands for quite some time. I'm looking forward to it. A lot.

To all of you out there: I pray you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, I hope you get to spend time with loved ones. Eat much, make merry and enjoy the holiday. I know I will.

There is much that I'm thankful for. A roof over my head, food on my table, a wonderful wife, great kids and grand-kids, good friends and talented colleagues at work. God has truly blessed me and my family.

But most of all I'm thankful for my Freedom and the men and women who keep us free. Spare a thought for them this day. I will.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Sarge. I'm goin' over the river and through the woo... err, sage... to the kids and grand-kids house, and The First Mrs. Pennington will also be in attendance. That should be amusing (I have my tongue in my cheek, of course).

    We in this country are well and truly blessed... I'm reminded of that every day, but never more so than on this holiday.

    Be safe!

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
