Let Us Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving to all my MOLs, MODs. MYLs and FOMs ! I know what your thinking - it must be really hard to be thankful around here. But actually that’s only the case for the Mr. and Mrs.


The rest of us have many reasons to be thankful, we’ve just learned not to express them too openly.

And so on this National day of Thanksgiving, I’m taking the day off to celebrate with my extended family. We like to get together when ever possible; it’s always a highly reflective gathering. This year we’ll also be ruminating about the election. Of course, like most families, we’ll have family members on both sides of the looking glass, hurling barbs at each other. Fortunately, with this clan, it stops at verbal barbs as anything else could have shattering results which is sure to ruin the day.

I don’t think Lady M will miss me, what with all the pies and stuffin’. She usually avoids me for several days afterwards anyway.

So I’ve got the day off, I’ve got a ticket to fly, and I’m hoping I won’t have to have one of those back scatting scans, because I’m sure it will screw up my nano-reflectors. But Bruno says not to worry, it’s worth it if it makes us safer.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We’ve all got much to be grateful for, once again.
