Nov 23, 2017 - 9:51 AM ET - HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

**TODAY. We're having a Turkey TV dinner for our Thanksgiving Day dinner. 

Cheap, simple and quick to fix. Maybe I should have told you this sooner. You've

probably already spent 8 hours in planning, cooking and setting the table. I'll 

tell you earlier next year. 


QUOTE FOR THIS POST

"Do not be grateful just on this day, but be grateful today and on all of your

WHAT'S ON MY MIND TODAY

**2:17 AM 11/23/2017 ET. Wake up. "It's a Beautiful Day in This 

Neighborhood."

And it's a beautiful day for giving thanks. 

I have an excellent memory, but I don't remember many Thanksgiving Day 

dinners. Maybe 2 at my sister, Nancy, and here husband, Harry's house. Many 

more at my grandparents Cline's house that I don't remember specifically.

I guess it doesn't matter if I forget sometime, I'll just have to be grateful today 

and on all of my tomorrows. 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Thanksgiving (United States)

"Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is a public holiday celebrated on the fourth 

Thursday of November in the United States. It originated as a harvest festival. 

Thanksgiving has been celebrated nationally on and off since 1789, after 

Congress requested a proclamation by George Washington. It has been 

celebrated as a federal holiday every year since 1863, when, during the American 

Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving 

and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens," to be 

celebrated on the last Thursday in November. Together with Christmas and the 

New Year, Thanksgiving is a part of the broader fall/winter holiday season in the 

U.S.

The event that Americans commonly call the "First Thanksgiving" was celebrated 

by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621. This 

feast lasted three days, and—as accounted by attendee Edward Winslow—it was 

attended by 90 Native Americans and 53 Pilgrims. The New England colonists 

were accustomed to regularly celebrating "thanksgivings"—days of prayer 

thanking God for blessings such as military victory or the end of a drought."

I know it's not Christmas, but I'll type the below and change it a little:

"A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost-Story of Christmas, commonly known 

as A Christmas Carol, is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London 

by Chapman & Hall in 1843; the first edition was illustrated by John Leech."

Wikipedia.

Originally published: December 19, 1843. 

In A Christmas Carol, Tiny Tim said, "A Merry Christmas to us all; God bless us, 

every one!"

I can't wait until Christmas, so I'll say it now, "A Happy Thanksgiving to us all; 

God bless us, every one!" Thank you, Tiny Tim and Charles Dickens.
