Thanksgiving Notebook

Today: Barbecued bird. Here is today’s indispensable advice (with accompanying video).

The blog: It has been going four years today. Which is shocking, considering that it hasn’t yet swayed the course of the planets, the Earth’s magnetic field, or empire. I’ll keep trying. And thanks for reading.

Today II: For a lot us us, today will always be that day. And to mark the occasion, The New York Times publishes yet another (but brief) consideration of what happened.

Today III: And what else? The kids will be here — I never thought I’d hear myself say that. I’ll talk to the rest of the family, wherever they are today. And that’s enough to be thankful for right there.

  1. Thanksgiving this year had me driving the Wife to the airport so she could fly to London to visit her sister (free American Airline passes). Ed and I have done squat since then.
    Re: The Day. Yeah….
    I was nine, had just moved to Chicago from Fort Worth, 30 miles from the epicenter. I used to walk home from school for lunch. They cut into Bozo’s Circus on WGN to announce the shooting.
    I lost my Texas accent reeeally fast that year.

  2. I was in 6 and in first grade at Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The principal, Sister Mary Venard, was crying over the PA system when she announced the assassination. Mom says I came home and announced that “Pope Kennedy” was shot. I don’t believe her. 🙂
    Happy Belated Thanksgiving, Dan.
