Happy Thanksgiving.

This is my favorite holiday of the year. My wife's family comes to town with kids and dogs and a rotating cast of boyfriends and girlfriends, and it's all great chaotic fun.

We have a lot to be thankful for. Jenny and I are doing well. Our old dog, Boomer keeps hanging in there. Molly is with us and doing better than I would have expected just a few weeks ago. I've written 1500 words in the past four days and the people where I work seem to appreciate what I do.

And you, my friends, I can't say enough about the love and support you've shown us this year.

I am immensely grateful.

I know it's sentimental, but I don't care.

Thank you. Have a good holiday and we'll see you back here next week when, if the stars align, there will be pictures! and music!

Have a wonderful holiday! Thrilled that Molly is doing better now.

And you say pictures and music...but what about dancing men?

Happy Turkey Day to all of you-glad to hear everyone is well and that Molly is doing better.

Be sure to slip Boomer some turkey.

I give Yarlize's pic ten stars. What the heck! Nines for everybody else; the whole week!

Great pic, Happy Thanksgiving, and I still want you to adopt us - as your poor Yankee cousins? We'll be there next year. Hey, we could bring buffalo to the bbq!

Glad Molly is doing better.

Ooh, Karen's idea is good. Naked dancing men.

Pictures and music!
Have a great one.
I'll be thinking of you as I head out to buy dogfood and coffee filters in a little while.
Then it's back to the paint, computers, cameras, and...
Glad you're writing.
