What Are You Thankful For?


Well, I have family coming in tomorrow so I doubt I get much blogging time this weekend. Just want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you have a safe, fun, turkey and pumpkin pie filled Thanksgiving!


Back when I had a big family that all still spoke to each other we would celebrate Thanksgiving at my grandparents house. They had the biggest dining room table I have ever seen and we could all fit around it. There were 6 of us grandchildren and each year it seemed like one of us had a different boyfriend or girlfriend. So our family prank on the new person would be to act like we have this family tradition of standing up and saying what we are most thankful for. Well you can imagine as a new person in a family you really just want to go under the radar and get out as soon as possible but that would never happen. Those were some of the funniest times, watching some guy's face turn blood red as he would stand up and try to think of something. None of them ever came up with very funny answers...mostly they would say like family or something. For once I wanted to hear one say, "I am thankful that I am not a member of this f*&$@# up family!" Oh well.


So what are you most thankful for this year? Come on...you are on the spot!

I hate to sound cheezey after all the other crap I write, but I am most thankful for my amazing wife, and our two beautiful children.

We're all healthy, and I'm the only one who is nuts. We aren't rich, but we aren't poor. I'm very lucky, and very thankful.

I'm also thankful for the people who enjoy my blogs...if it weren't for you, I'd just be a crazy guy ranting about nonsense....Oh, I guess I am that guy.

Happy Turkey Day.

Beeze,
Being thankful for your family is the only way to be! You are a very lucky guy. I think a lot of people take their health and family for granted. Wish your family a Happy Turkey day from the crazy blog lady! LOL
I love your new restaurant blog...keep it up! You are a great blogger Beeze!
