Wow, I can't believe I haven't updated this for three months.
I'm going to keep this short and sweet. Listed here, in no particular order, are things I'm thankful for:
Cliched as it is, I'm thankful for my family.
I'm thankful thagt after the last two years of struggling to make ends meet, I'm now earning a living and capable of paying my bills.
I'm thankful for Abbey Road.
I'm thankful for Alice's Restaurant Masacree. I discovered this song about 20 years ago at Michael Cohen's house on Thanksgiving Day, and have ritually listened to it every single Thanksgiving day since then. It doesn't grow old.
I'm thankful that tending to the leaves in my yard during the fall, and tending to the snow in my yard during the winter doesn't debilitate me as much as it did when I first started tackling those things 12 years ago. Practice and almost-regular visits to the gym have noticeably increased my stamina.
I'm thankful for generous relatives.
I'm thankful for The Princess Bride.
I'm thankful for the luxury of getting to drive anywhere I want, whenever I want. On the horizon, our krewe will be heading to Metairie,LA, for example.
That's all. And remember, you can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant (excepting Alice).
