Every Thanksgiving I take inventory of the things I am thankful for. The list is incomplete every year because I can’t think of everything at once. What matters is that I acknowledge and be grateful for what I have:
- My kind, loving and handsome hubby & his terrific family
- My 3 gorgeous granddaughters & 1 handsome grandson
- My large-breed puppy who is finally calming down a bit
- That the American people did not vote in a President that puts classified information on an unclassified/non-government network.
- The Independence Hall Quilters Guild in Arnold, CA
- The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Benefits Package
- My BFF, 2,000 miles away, and the technology to telephone, email, Skype and fly Southwest.
- That my daughter is not embarrassed to invite me to rock concerts
- All the blessings from Jehovah God – of which there are way too many to count.
Let me know what YOU are thankful for!

Has Political Correctness gone too far?
“Yes!”, exclaims Mayor Eldon Sidney, “and the people of this town have decided to do something about it.”
The residents of Nemo, CA decided at their monthly town meeting on Friday, to put together a local law (Measure” N”) that would be added to the County Election ballot and voted on during the Primary Election, Tuesday, June 5th, 2012.
If passed, Measure “N” will exempt the town of Nemo from using P.C. terminology. They will be free to talk like they used to.
“You know, like back when this country had free-speech”, said Councilman Hart. “We have more rules, laws, and taxes forced on us now by our own Government than the English oppressed us with back in the 1770’s.”
Nemo’s oldest resident at 89-years, Hattie May Johnson, laughed when asked how she felt about Measure N. “I’ve been talking since the age of two and nobody’s going to be able to change how I do it now. I don’t cuss or take the Lord’s name in vain, which is more than those politicians can say!” Hattie went on to explain, “If we say someone is ‘height challenged’, everyone has to think about that a minute to translate the meaning. Horse feathers! Short means short! I’m short. Are you ashamed of being short? If you say I’m ‘height challenged’ I am still short. It don’t change that fact one bit!”
She’s got a point there. Maybe there should be a law about political correctness – requiring politicians to behave correctly...
