Thanksgiving Day 2007
Labor Day seems like it was just yesterday and yet here we are and it's already Thanksgiving Eve Day. It's a very busy day for a lot of Americans. Some people will be driving, some will be flying, some people will be cooking, and cleaning. Me? I'll be watching TV and spanking my bird.
Well... not all day. I still have to go shopping. Yes, I'm one of those assholes who waits until the Day before a holiday to do his grocery shopping. I hope I don't get into a brawl with some senile old lady over the last bag of flower this year.
But what I really want to write about today is how grateful and thankful I am this year. I've said it many times and I'll say it a million more before it's all said and done, this has been the best year of my life. Here's a brief explanation, but I think most of you know who, what, where, and why this has been such a great year for us.
I'm really looking forward to spending tomorrow with my wife and son while we watch the parade and eat cinnamon rolls and drink coffee. Then we cook, and then we go over to Allyson's Mom and Dad's house for food, drink, football, miracle, and expanding.
But while I'm doing all that we'll also be celebrating the official start of the Holiday season here on the log with the traditional Corky's Thanksgiving Day/Weekend Comment Parade. That's right folks, I'm also thankful for all of the wonderful comments I hope to receive. I want to know everything... What are you grateful for? What are you watching on TV? How many drinks have you had? Who's driving you crazy? What's your all time favorite drug? Is the Christmas tree up yet? What are your Thanksgiving traditions? Anything and everything goes!
PS All my friends from other countries and planets are encouraged to celebrate Thanksgiving with Corky and the Gang too. I wouldn't have it any other way. ;)
