After five years of writing this blog, I think we’ve formed some friendships and kinships here. For that, I am most grateful on this day. There are, of course, many other things for which I am thankful, as I know are each of you. If there is one thing that stands out to you as 2012 comes to a close, please share that with us in the comments section below. And to get us into the holiday spirit, I am going to give away a photo. All you have to do is comment, and there will be a drawing later.
Second thing. Here’s what’s on our holiday menu this year, and we’d like to know what’s on yours or what your favorite Thanksgiving dish really is, no matter how strange or unconventional.

Whatever is on your holiday table today, or whatever is shared with you on this special day, I hope you can take a moment to find something to be thankful for–no matter how small.
I, for one, would like to thank all my Native American friends for having mercy on some weird-smelling pale faces who invaded their territories and taught them how to find food and fend for themselves. Without them, I dare say I would not be here right now, thanking them.
Happy Holidays, my dear friends.
