Thursdays are for Thanksgiving -- especially this Thursday!

It's pretty hard not to be a thankful soul on a morning like this. Though overcast, it's not a bad day out.
There are storms forecast for later in the day, but temperatures are seasonably warm and you don't have to shovel rain.

Chris worked prepping most of the Thanksgiving dinner yesterday so pies are baked and everything else is pretty much ready for the oven.

I really enjoyed my weekend visit to Chicago and could see getting used to city life (again), but I am also very thankful for the quiet and pretty boring community of Ozark MO. In fact, I would also be happy living out in the woods with no neighbors for miles. While many areas of the world are tormented and oppressed, I am peacefully sipping on a cup of coffee made from freshly roasted beans and typing away on my Chromebook.

I am free to type without worry of censorship and I can write about the government, religion, politics or controversial social issues without fear of imprisonment or fine.
Later today, I will walk the streets of my neighborhood or town and I will not have to go armed and will not be afraid of my fellow Ozark residents.

We have plenty of food and will share it with friends later today.
And when this day is over, we will rest peacefully in a comfortable home.

Yeah, I've got a good life!
And I am thankful!

"..and you don't have to shovel rain."

Just tell Chris on those days 'take today off, I'm sleeping in'.

I'm glad your trip to Chicago went well! Happy Thanksgiving to you and Chris!
