Happy Thanksgiving everybody. I thought I’d take a moment to share some of the things I’m thankful for. I’m thankful for my wife who loves me and tolerates my politico-blogging obsessions and my kids who have great senses of humor, not least because they still think Dad is the funniest person in the world. I’m thankful for a roof over my head and plenty of food on the table. I’m thankful for a steady job, and pleasant co-workers. I’m thankful to practice law in front of the wisest judges that ever graced a court room (psst, some of them read this blog). I’m thankful for my dogs who give me a proper greeting every day when I get home. I’m thankful for parents who raised me right, even if I didn’t always heed the lessons. I’m thankful for a good education and teachers who encouraged me to think rather than merely to recite. I’m also thankful for those teachers who taught me that, sometimes, there just isn’t any substitute for buckling down and memorizing a few facts. I’m thankful that the NFL has football games on that I can watch when my belly is groaning under the weight of turkey and mashed potatoes. I’m thankful I was born and raised in the United States and Indiana….
And, I’m thankful that my son wants to spend time with me, RIGHT NOW. So I won’t go into the rest of the stuff I’m thankful for. Have a good Thanksgiving everyone.
