I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I spent my day working, which I am thankful for. That means no working this Saturday as Ohio State rolls Michigan,....again. I am thankful for my family, a family who loved me and raised me to be a caring, compassionate, decent human being,.....with an offbeat sense of humor. I am thankful for direct flights from Detroit to Ft Myers,....at very reasonable prices. I am thankful we have an extra bedroom for them when they visit. I am thankful for and average high temperture in the mid 70's in the months of Dec., Jan., & Feb. I am thankful for a job in Florida during the Winter. I am thankful for my health, which enables me to live an active lifestyle. I am thankful that after 20+ years of playing hockey without a mask I still have all my teeth. I am thankful for our country's forefathers and our great military, police, and firefighters. I am thankful for those who do thankless jobs. I am thankful for all the teachers. Somebody had to teach Johnny Ramone how to play ! I am thankful for all my friends, in many different places. I am thankful for the person that invented the mini helmet and baseball hat. One of lifes simple pleasure and I love that shit. I am thankful for man's best friend, when I don't understand people or they don't understand me, they are alway there and always lift my sprits. I am thankful for The Phinsider,...the news, analysis, comments, and pure zaniness ( whatever happened to In the Mind of Rzy24 ???). I am thankful for hooking up with The Deep End crew, where being a little left of center gets you one of the best seats in the house. Yes, I got asked back,....go figure. I am thankful I'm not a Cowboys or Lions fan,....they suck. I could go on, there are plenty of teams worse off than our beloved Dolphins. And to the fans of teams doing better the Dolphins, respectfully, they suck too ! My bais is to the bone. There is plenty more I am thankful, to name a few, gas not being $5/gal., California not falling into the seas, rollercoasters, fried shrimp, so on & so on.....
And finally, I am thankful for having a beautiful person as my Wife and best friend. When I am confused and weak she gives me the strength to press on. She makes me smile and I never want to take her forgranted ( but I did have to whip her ass at miniature golf tonight ).
Happy Holidays ! Now, go hug sombody you love !!!!
