Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

I'm about to pack it in here. Posting probably will be pretty light over the weekend, as we have family in town for the holiday. But feel free to check in anyway - you never know, after all, when some fresh outburst of meaty, woolly snippiness might not appear.

In the meantime, I suppose this is where one inserts the traditional language of gratitude. I thought about breaking out and listing all the people (including you lot), things and events for which I have been thankful this past year, but realized there were too many to make this practical. I also thought about trying to say something Original and Profound in order to convey the depth of my gratitude, but my eyes, throat and mind are far too flu-addled to come up with anything worthwhile at the moment.

So, with your kind indulgence, I am simply going to borrow my four-year-old's favorite dinner blessing, which seems to me to pretty much cover the bases in both scope and simple sincerity:

Thank you God for everything. Amen.

Enjoy your holiday and everyone involved in it. Be safe. Eat well. Sleep better. I'll see you later.

Yip! Yip! Yip!
