the belated thanksgiving post

I agonized over this year’s traditional Thanksgiving post for several hours last week, trying to put into words how thankful I am for the fact that I met Linette and that we were somehow able to scramble up our respective DNAs in such a way as to create a baby as bright and as cheerful as Clementine, but I just couldn’t seem to hit the right tone. So, the holiday came and went without comment from me. I don’t suppose that fact made anyone’s Thanksgiving less enjoyable, but it ate at me the whole weekend like the carcass of a nearly pick-clean bird… At any rate, I hope your Thanksgiving went well and that you were able to find something in this crazy, mixed-up world of ours to be thankful for. (If you feel like sharing, I’d be curious to know what you were (are) thankful for.)

    Whoa, Pat, Mark carved the turkey? Who cooked it?

    My mother (Pat) cooked the turkey and I carved it, under the watchful eye of my wife (Linette), who had just seen a television special on new turkey carving methods, or some such thing… It worked out really well.

    I am extremely thankful that my mother’s health is on the upswing. I am also thankful for mashed potatoes!

    I’m thankful that I have a job (at least through the New Year). And like Sara, I’m thankful for mashed potatoes – one of God’s true gifts to us.
