I'm just popping in here to wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving. I'm home alone today, nursing a cold, eating raw oysters, drinking beer and watching football. A perfectly normal Thanksgiving.
Err, well, that might require an explanation. My wife and her sons are in Chicago taking care of her mother who fell ill (but is recovering nicely!), my kids are with their mom, and I'm still too contagious to visit my parents and expose them to my cold virus. So I'm here dining on the oysters we had planned to turn into oyster stuffing for some cornish game hens.
And loving it.
I don't think I'm going to post the rest of the day. Instead I'm taking some time to play with things I've been wanting to work with for some time. We'll see if any results of those efforts find their way to this blog.
Before I sign off, I want to say that I am deeply thankful to all of you, those who visit and those who comment - folks like Dean, B-Daddy, Kelly, Tim Eisele, Jeff Burton, Foxfier, Rose, Wollf, Justin, Mostly Nothing, the Secular Apostate, Mog, Sissy Willis and all the rest of you. This blog has been the focal point of my intellectual life and without you, it would be a lonely, empty enterprise.
I hope you all have a fun and blessed day.
