Thirteen Things I’m Thankful For

(And yes, I know the title is bad grammar, but it scans better.  Deal with it.)

It’s Thanksgiving again.  A couple of years ago I did a posting on things I was thankful for.  I think it’s time to do that again.  Since I am a pretty shallow person in awfully many ways, it will be a shallow list.  And, if I did the list again three months from now, it might be very different. Here’s what I’m grateful for now. 

  1. I’m thankful for;,  Sometimes I’m thanful for Huffington Post, but not very often, actually.
  2. I’m thankful that I live in a country where, any time day or night, I can go to a faucet, turn the tap and clean drinkable water will gush from the spout.
  3. I’m also thankful that pretty much any time, day or night, I can throw a switch and get heat and electricity.
  4. I’m still thankful for dogs.
  5. I’m thankful for the Sig-O, but don’t tell him that.  It’ll just give him a big head.
  6. I’m thankful for my family, my extended family and my friends.
  7. I’m thankful for Facebook (really) because it helps me stay in touch with my extended family and friends in an easy way.
  8. I’m thankful for my job.  Not just that I have one; that for 34 years I have been able, most of the time anyway, to do work that made people’s lives better.
  9. I’m thankful for the people who work for me and with me.  They are awesome.
  10. To the four of you who actually read the blog, I am thankful.  Thanks, guys.
  11. I am thankful that I can read.
  12. I am thankful for independent bookstores—and online bookstores. Yes, I can hold two opposing concepts in my mind at one time.
  13. And I’m thankful for champagne.
