A Thanksgiving Blogfest

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

At the last minute I have decided to participate in Jeffrey Beesler's Early Bird Thanksgiving Blogfest. Hop on over to Jeffrey Beesler's World of the Scribe to read the rest of the thankful stories/lists. So let the appreciation begin.

I am thankful for...

Alien dust bunnies who scare un-wanted visitors from my home. Prudes..

My big truck. Little cars now fear me and I no longer have to peddle to catch up.

the fact I no longer have to dress for success. It seems style is now more of a shock factor.

Word verification. It is making for an interesting dictionary, wait til I explain this hillbilly style.

Dog collar strobe lights. Every night I have my very own light show in the backyard.

My ability to go from an  average, middle-aged woman to she devil with no good reason, will come in handy this season.

My fear of flying. Otherwise I would develop a paranoia concerning my junk I might never get over.

Now what I truly am thankful for:

My God, My family and my furry friends.

My conscience decision that tomorrow will be better.

That regardless of my situation, I still have good things in my life.

That I am not hungry.

I live in a country where my opinion can be just that, regardless of my sex.

And you.
My most up-lifting, inspiring, heart warming, best thing to happen to me, followers.

Have a wonderful, safe Thanksgiving and may the turkey fill your tummy and by-pass your thighs.

My Thanksgiving will be Saturday in conjunction with my grandmothers 92nd birthday. Tomorrow I will be preforming community service, trying to fulfill my legal obligations regarding my "Careless Driving."

Word verification really is a mystifying thing. There has actually been one instance in which I got a true word out of the verification thing. Aside from that, other words have given me names to use in my fantasy and sci fi stories.

Jules, I had some time so I had to come back and read some of your past posts...I am enthralled...one of your comments that really struck me was: It wasn’t until I stepped back that I realized what a force you guys have become in my life. Do you know what I mean? (from Mon. Nov. 22)
Why this resonated with me is because I am a writer, not a talker and I have found new strength with my writing in the blog community. It is relatively new for me and my posts have become more honest. When I read that specific comment, it occured to me; YES, this blogging community is a strong force. I hope you don't need to be MIA, but if you do, your community will be here for you!

Happy Thanksgiving Jules. Thanks, also, for coming by and reading my entry.

Great list, but only one I'm not thankful for - Word Verification! I hate hate hate it! Sorry! I don't use it, never have, and have never really had spam. Sometimes I forget to scroll down again and put it in on comments so often my comments probably don't show up.:)

You've got a couple great lists here, Jules. I like the word verification words, but not the process. And now I'm off to find a strobe light dog collar. Thanks for bringing those to my attention!

Hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!
