Tomorrow many Americans will be sitting down with their loved ones and engage in acts of gluttony and give thanks for various things in their lives. Thanksgiving will be a small event for me as I'm taking the folks out to dinner rather than make Mom work really hard for the three of us.

I kind of miss sitting at the kids table. They're always more fun.

While this year has been a trying one personally I'm grateful for a lot in my life. I'm fortunate my birth mother gave me up for adoption rather than use the right given to her by Roe v Wade. If she did the latter the world would be pained without one less sexy, brilliant individual. To think there would be no Erik's Ramblings to pass the time.

I'm very thankful for the people in my life, both friends and family. Without them I would be even a more miserable son of a bitch. Also I think it's cool that I don't live in a third world country or have to sing Tom Jones songs on the street for change.

So for my American readers, all three of you, the folks at Erik's Ramblings wish you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

"On Thanksgiving I will stop to give thanks that my family is safe and healthy, especially because I realize that, following the tragedies of this year, it is all too real a possibility that they might not have been." - Bobby Jindal

I find myself being thankful - unbelievably thankful - for being employed. And for my friends and family. Especially my friend Wiwille.

Have a good Thanksgiving.

I wonder if the restaurant will serve turkey??

Happy Thanksgiving!

I can relate to your thoughts. Our celebration consisted of a family made up of parents (my inlaws) who gave two unwanted children a chance at a good life, and the addition of their 4 children, and now a new grandchild on the way.
