By the time this has been posted, I’ll either be putting a turkey breast in the slow-cooker, or still asleep (I’m hoping for the latter; I can always save the turkey for dinner, and I’m exhausted). I can’t be with my family today, but I’ll be thinking of them while I eat my cornbread dressing. And since it’s just me, I won’t have to fight for the corner bit.

This Thanksgiving especially, it’s important to remember the good things we should be thankful for, and know that life goes on no matter the insanity that’s going on right now.

Laughter helps. I know it helps me. And not thinking about shopping. Or work. Or the next president …

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

  1. Dear Brenda,

    Please know your column is one of the things I am thankful for year after year. Don’t let Luke eat all the turkey, but maybe he could have a little piece.

    Best wishes,

    Cousin Earl

  2. Thank you Brenda. I am working today but that is normal for someone who works in a hospital. Someone always has to be here to help the nurses.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Luke! Enjoy your turkey… I’m a Cornish game hen man myself. Love those little critters. They’re harder to catch however than a turkey and my net has about had it! 🙂

    • Happy Thanksgiving, Alan!

      Usually I’d do a game hen (and I have one in the freezer right now), but I saw the turkey breast and decided to splurge a little. And as long as I don’t have to pluck the bird (or get Luke to do it), I’m fine! 😉

  4. Your comma card is very similar to the t-shirt I bought recently:
    “Let’s eat Grandma.”
    “Let’s eat, Grandma.”
    Commas save lives.
    Happy Thanksgiving, Brenda. And give Luke a pat for me.
