what are Top Five Things for Which to be Grateful, Alex

- turkey, the magnificent bird
- a weekend with the Offspring Temporarily Known Once Again as Resident, who has adjusted so well to a life of independence in the big world
- sprawling on the chesterfield watching crappy horror movies with the Offspring and forgetting that she had ever left
- stalwart friends, who understand me
- family who accept my oddities

Happy Thanksgiving.

I am doing my best to stuff her into submission, Wandering Coyote. It's the best gift ever, having her home.

Still full, may not eat for another week or so. Thanks everyone, hope your Thanksgiving (or your regular old weekend) was lovely too.

It's the ramp up to the high holy day of the year, Beckeye. Necessary homework, it is.

You can say that now, Sean, but that's just because you haven't run away to join the circus yet. Not everybody gets to scoop up after the elephants, you know.

Happy Thanksgiving Barb!
I still remember that thanks giving dinner with you Jerry and Eva in 2002 when I first landed in Calgary from Toronto, she was only 11 at the time. Now all grown up and in the University!

I remember that dinner well, Jas, and it seems just last year, doesn't it? I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. Nice to be back with your family, I'll bet.

Ima few days late (as usual), but I'm glad the Zombie Basic Family Unit (ZBFU) had a great Thanksgiving.

Boiling up the turkey carcass today, Charlie. Thanksgiving is never really over.
