Happy Thanksgiving 


What we're really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets.  I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?  ~Erma Bombeck, "No One Diets on Thanksgiving," 26 November 1981

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.  ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.  ~Edward Sandford Martin

An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.  ~Irv Kupcinet

Thanksgiving comes to us out of the prehistoric dimness, universal to all ages and all faiths.  At whatever straws we must grasp, there is always a time for gratitude and new beginnings.  ~J. Robert Moskin

On Thanksgiving Day, all over America, families sit down to dinner at the same moment - halftime.  ~Author Unknown

It is literally true, as the thankless say, that they have nothing to be thankful for.  He who sits by the fire, thankless for the fire, is just as if he had no fire.  Nothing is possessed save in appreciation, of which thankfulness is the indispensable ingredient.  But a thankful heart hath a continual feast.  ~W.J. Cameron

Thanksgiving is America's national chow-down feast, the one occasion each year when gluttony becomes a patriotic duty.  ~Michael Dresser

The heart will find the pathway home.~Wilbur D. Nesbit

A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.  ~Cicero

Coexistence:  what the farmer does with the turkey - until Thanksgiving.  ~Mike Connolly

I have strong doubts that the first Thanksgiving even remotely resembled the "history" I was told in second grade.  But considering that (when it comes to holidays) mainstream America's traditions tend to be over-eating, shopping, or getting drunk, I suppose it's a miracle that the concept of giving thanks even surfaces at all.  ~Ellen Orleans

Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday.  People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year.  And then discover once a year is way too often.  ~Johnny Carson

Got no check books, got no banks.  Still I'd like to express my thanks - I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night.  ~Irving Berlin

Last but certainly not least:

Have a great Thanksgiving ~ Jennifer

Nice post, Jen!  Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

Me, I give thanks that I still have a baseball team to root for...not criticize, not decry, not heap abuse on, not complain about...but to root FOR.  It's a miracle we still have the Tribe to kick around, and for that I mostly smile when I think about the Cleveland Indians, not frown.  The Chief has the perfect attitude toward the team, and it's mine as well.

Be well all...and go easy on the mashed potatoes (because I want some).

Very Nice! I give thanks for alot of things, but for the baseball part; I give thanks that i'm not a Miami fan this year... I hope that the money will flow and all of these good Indians fans can have something special to cheer about next year...
