This Thanksgiving...

I know it's not very PC to say...but I think the
PILGRIMS rocked!

If it wasn't for them, there would be no us!!!
And for all their struggle and sacrifice so that
ingrates would some day have the right talk
garbage about them...all those who came before
us and did all the heavy lifting...
I am very THANKFUL (not for the ingrates, though!)

I am not the worlds biggest jingoist but I am
a realist, and if it hadn't been England, then
some other country would have come to the
New World.
Sorry to rant on this festive day, bit I am just
so tired of the ridiculousness each year, not about
any current situation but about the legitimacy
of our birth.
This is great country, founded in the same way
all others were. I am beyond grateful to live here

Ok, I will be good now.....

I hope you are welcomed to a warm and loving

full of beauty....

and bounty....

And cheer!!!
(AND LOTS OF FOOD!!! And bless the
hands that prepared it!!)

And most especially for these guys!!!!!

Talk about those of us who do the heavy lifting!

GOD BLESS each and every one of them this

And their amazing families who will be spending
Thanksgiving without them....

WE ARE SO THANKFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
