ABCs of Thanksgiving – Y is for You


Thank you for being here.

Thank you to the handful of readers who have been here all along.

Thank you for the few I’ve picked up in the last few weeks.

Granted, there’s a good bit of vanity in this blog and in my posts. Thank you for sticking with me through all of that.

Hopefully along the way you’ve found something that was worth reading.

If you have, tell your friends.

If you haven’t. Tell no one.

Today is actually Thanksgiving Day.

I’ll be watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and feeling like I’m seven all over again.

Then we’ll probably watch the dog show while we wait for company and working offspring (people have to have their Starbucks, even today) to show up so we can have an early evening dinner.

Then it’s the food stupids.

I’m also thankful for stretchy pants, but I already did “S.”

Thanks for reading.

I hope you enjoy your day.

ABCs of Thanksgiving – X is for Xmas

No, it doesn’t take Christ out of Christmas.

It’s an ancient way of writing the word as the “X” comes from the Greel letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Christós (???????).

Chrismas gets two posts in my ABCs of Thankgiving because the season is upon us.

I’m already in performances for Winterfest at Kings Dominion.

Our house is decorated. Granted with a couple of ornaments we’ll never see again thanks to two loveable but annoying canines.

I typically don’t use the word Xmas. But I have been known to set some people straight on the Interwebz. Or I’ve tried. I can’t do it all.

Christmas or Xmas, the most wonderful time of the year and the season is upon us.

I’m thankful for that.
