Happy Thanksgiving

Playing the entire song on the radio was a Thanksgiving tradition. Some of them were commercial stations-- almost nineteen minutes of no commercials. And some of them played it twice, at noon and 3 PM.

It was basically true, at least the first part. The judge in the tale was really blind, he had a Seeing-Eye dog. He played himself in the movie (as did Officer Obie).

I hope that if you're in America, you and yours have a good Thanksgiving. Try not to punch out your racist/antivaxx uncle or your commie nephew.

And please, enjoy the day without resorting to rampant consumerism.

Or burning down your hostess's house.

So celebrate the day when people, who were being oppressed for their religion, landed on a new land where their descendants could do unto others as was done unto them.


  1. lets hope also that your side doesn't push their Vaxx and Liberal messages too hard on the other folks either.

    And Happy Thanksgiving. I sincerely hope that everyone who comments/reads here has a great deal to be thankful for.

  2. We’re not going to run people into the FEMA camps until 2023 at the earliest, B. Take my word for it.

  3. my comment was in response to the posted words "Try not to punch out your racist/antivaxx uncle or your commie nephew"
    Remember there ARE two sides. Don't make that Uncle/nephew want to have a reason tp punch you out either.
    Best if BOTH sides fins other topics.

  4. Enchiladas. I'm thankful for enchiladas. Whole-grain chorizo with black beans, tomatoes and key-lime shrimp in a light sweet chili sauce enchiladas, easy on the cheese.

  5. The "Try not to punch out your racist/antivaxx uncle or your commie nephew" part does sort of imply that there are twi far sides to the political debate, B.


  6. B unwittingly has pointed out the worst thing you can do to people on his side of the aisle is to imply that they’re engaging in shameful activity.

  7. WXPN, Philadelphia plays Alice's Restaurant at noon on Thanksgiving Day every year. It's a meal-prep tradition to have it on. Then we watch the Lions lose.
