Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for a great many things this year, including the following:
We avoided four more years of Bush!
We sent a new guy to Congress from Connecticut
My wife and I are still employed and have health insurance
Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin!
The fact that Barack Obama already seems saner than the last guy
(I just updated this post to include this photo of the Obama family volunteering earlier today)
All my friends and fellow bloggers, who made this year so much fun!
Kirby, who started blogging again!
Spending a lot of time sailing despite a very hectic year
The replacement windows we installed this year, saving precious fuel oil
My new digital camera, which shoots remarkably good video (see below)
These birds, who chowed down on a suet block yesterday:
And most of all, for the first time in many years, I'm thankful for feeling HOPEFUL for the coming year!
