Okay. I know I can be a curmudgeon, especially about holidays and such. I know I can be a little cantankerous.
But I try not to be mean-spirited; try always to be generous and compassionate about others’ feelings, as The Buddha suggests.
So let me just say this: I know I have much to be thankful for; know I have many people in my life for whom I should be (and am) thankful–including those I wish were not in my life, but who serve me well, providing examples of lives I am grateful I do not lead.
I guess I could make a specific list. There certainly would be at least thirteen names. But you all know who you are anyway, so why bother?
In addition to all the people I actually know, here are Sam and Dave, two more I’ve never met.
Even on Thanksgiving, there’s always THURSDAY THIRTEEN.
PS: Coincidentally, this just happens to be post #600 here at Scrambled, Not Fried. One more thing to be grateful for: Readership. Thanks!
