Thanksgiving

I'm thankful I got a Trophy Wife (40 years now!), and a Trophy Dawg; I got some kids and they have their own kids (who know my name!) I got a few friends (on line & off); I got a small house, a small yard, a part-time job, a car, a boat; I got mobility and I got some time left. But I got some things yet to say, see, do and write. So, I'm guessing that I got enuf'. And so, I guess I'm more than thankful for what I got and also for knowing that who I am and what I got don't add up to spit as long as there are so many I know of who don't have what they need to live a more simple life than I do. I'm glad I have more questions than answers. But in the future, I just hope I do better sustaining the pain involved in asking right questions and hearing true answers.

  5. Vigil other than the fact that you don't have the King of Canines, i.e. the regal and majestic German shepherd, I suspect that you do have a lot to be thankful for...you are a lucky man and I am glad to call you a friend. Have a great day my friend....

    P.S. Nice dog:-)

  7. It's hard to keep the glass even half full - this, folks, when you have a crack in the bottom. I don't know. There's a metaphor in there somewhere.
