What a noble bird. Wild Turkeys are very cool.

Trying to get a few hours of writing in before the family time. But I felt the need to post this. It was originally posted on my personal Facebook page.


Okay, I have a lot to do this morning before heading out to the folks house, but I need to pause for a moment of Thanksgiving.

Thanks for the person who found my laptop’s power cord at Starbucks and turned it in and thanks for the kind staff that hunted around their little office to find it.

Thanks for my housemate Walt for giving me a cheep place to live.

Thanks for my part-time job from hell to a somewhat steady inflow of cash.

Thanks for my family.

Thanks to social media and email that lets me stay in touch with the people that made me who I am, cause you are all over the whole damn planet now!

And this year especially thanks to my friend Cindy, who after 34 years finally convinced me that not only can I write but that I should. All I needed was perseverance and a supportive editor!

I hope you all had/have a good Thanksgiving day.
