A Thanksgiving thanks....
« on: November 22, 2017, 09:43:45 AM »
As we move into Thanksgiving Day, we all probably have a laundry list of things to thankful for. Here's mine:

..Thanks for my good health and comfort :bOW

..Thanks for my energy to continue my officiating hobbies :bOW

..Thanks for my friends and family, for their love and kindness :bOW

..Thanks for living in the greatest country on our planet :patrioticon:  :bOW

..Thanks for living in a state with seasonal changes  :bOW

..Thanks with keeping the Maine winters warm with excitement of the Celtics and Patriots  :bOW

..Thanks for the assumed  eAt& spread  eAt& my sister will have for us all tomorrow  :bOW

..And thanks to all of you guys for making every office arrival an enjoyable one - I first check my messages, then I check to see what you've got to say...

 ^flag ^good ^no ^talk ^TD ^flag

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, ALL !!!

A really good list, back at you.  Oh, what time is your sister expecting all of us for dinner?

Thanks, Al, for the response BUT my sister doesn't serve Yankee fans. :)

Hey, you never know, after a really great Thanksgiving dinner even a firmly closed mind might be opened a little, with the right kind of persuasion. 

During a Colonie Yankee - Massachusetts Red Sox (minor league) game, my young son was cheering for both teams. When I (good naturedly) suggested he couldn't do that, as young sons are prone to do, he asked why?  Stuck for an answer, I had to resort to, "It's in the Bible".

Not sure he bought that, even then. Is your sister up on her scriptures?

My sister was taught at a young age by her big brother (me) that the Yankees were sorta' like the Gritch that stole Christmas, as they were always stealing the Pennant form our beloved Red Sox. :'(

She recently reminded me if the day back in my daze of youth when I traded a Mickey Mantle card for on of TED LEPICO -a utility infielder of our Red (then) Flops.

Sometimes ,I think more with my heart then with my brain...
