Yesterday was THANKSGIVING DAY. It started well for me, thank God. Lots of pleasant correspondence with friends old and new, and my few remaining family members as well.
No Big Dinner for me yesterday. I was at home by myself, but I am grateful to have many wonderful memories from years past, enough money to live comfortably, a very nice house that is a lifelong dream come true, and two charming kittycats –– Winner and Mr. Pussy –– to share it with.
I am thankful to be alive at age 76, and to be able to walk, talk, think, write and play the piano tolerably well. My eyesight is pretty well shot, but I still see well enough to get around, and to apprecate the beauty in my surroundings, thank God.
The state of our blessed country bothers the hell out of me, but I'm still very grateful to have been born at a time when there was still so much to celebrate, love, enjoy and take pride in about being an American.
I hope every one of you had a wonderful day yesterday, and continue to remain well, free from harm, free from sadness, bitterness, resentment, discontent and full of optimism, affection, determination, and bright hopes for the future.
Love and best wishes to all,
