The Giving of Thanks…

Well boys and girls I am back or should I say I have arrived. We got in early evening last night after we had logged in more than 3000 miles between here and L.A. I will try to regale you with individual stories of the road but some of the highlights include: a windstorm (including tumbleweeds) in the New Mexico high desert, dark county road under construction and getting lost, unbelievable gas prices, mcdonald’s coffee and how to pry your cat off a motel 6 bed.

But for now, I’ll say thanks to my buds Michael, Moe, Panther, Teens & Evyl for their great guest posts- for all of you and my friends and family for your good wishes and prayers for our safe journey (which is was/is) and to the universe in general for making this a special thanksgiving for me and for giving me something for which I feel truly grateful.

And of course no Thanksgiving would be complete without a few toons, eh?

Have a great one – see you guys on the other side of the weekend.:)

Giving Thanks


I’m off to Santa Barbara for a long overdue reunion with dear friends. But I wanted to leave this for you to read. It was a bit of a surprise to me as I had no idea that the origins of Thanksgiving did not center around the pilgrims.

Enjoy yourselves, eat hearty and good. Look around and feel gratitude for all the many things large and small that give your life meaning. Hold those you love close and tell them you love them. And say a prayer for those you can not hug.

Happy Thanksgiving. I will see you in a few days.
