Happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers from the ‘States today. Yes, it’s Thanksgiving in the US today, that day we sit down, eat too much, watch odd things on TV, and get ready to shop.
This year, I am thankful for my friends, my family, my curly sweet Chase, my on-line buddies, the good men and women overseas in our armed forces fighting for my freedom, and really so much more. I do appreciate all of it and it’s a great holiday that we have. I hope you all have enjoyed it as well. Today’s image is from Chimayo, New Mexico, a place where there’s obviously faith and hope to spare.
I had opportunity to watch some TV this afternoon and have a few news related items to share with you, on this Thanksgiving evening:
- Regarding the terrorist attack in India-our thoughts and prayers are with you. Know that we all share an international sense of grief at the recent events and, while it may look like we’re superficial, out busy shopping and all, we’re also keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. Our hearts go out to all who have lost someone this holiday season.
- It was reported recently that they found a giant truffle that could fetch upwards of $250,000 on the open market. That’s a whole lotta ‘shroom if you ask me. Giant fungus, anybody? Thank goodness it didn’t manifest itself as a really really bad case of athlete’s foot, that’s all I have to say.
- From the police blotter, it seems a granny was stopped stealing a car. A 69 year old Texas woman (why, oh why, do these things always seem to happen in Texas?) was stopped by police after darting away in a car police had setup to lure car thieves. The in-dash hidden camera revealed her saying things like, “No, no, Sweet Jesus, no” as she was pulled over by the authorities.
Now, isn’t that just what you wanted to hear on this, Thanksgiving Day? “Sweet Jesus” in a stolen car? I know it’s not what I was expecting on this Thanksgiving day but, hey, it’s not like I haven’t heard stranger things either.
Happy Turkey Day!
Until next time…
