Giving Thanks

by Brian Thornton

Wha-huh? It's Thanksgiving again ALREADY?

Where the heck did thus year fly off to?

Ah, well.

Here's what I'm grateful for (in no particular order):

My wife.

My son.

My parents.

My brother.

The rest of my far-flung, crazy family.

Wonderful friendships higher in terms of quality and sheer numbers than I have any right to command.

My two jobs. One I like, the other, I love. I'll leave it for you to sort out which is which.

Health, welfare, sense of humor. The whole package.

And lest we forget, you, the reader, for bothering with a trifle such as this little confection, on a day when there is so much heavy lifting to do on the eating side of things.

Happy Thanksgiving, one and all!



  1. And all good wishes to you!

  2. Happy thanksgiving to you, Brian, that far-flung family, and all the SleuthSayers and their families.

  3. I give thanks for all of you in sharing your stories, adventures, experiences and thoughts throughout the year.
    On a side note, I give thanks for the many words of PD James who passed from the writer's circle today. http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-30232569

  4. And I am thankful for the fun and insights from this (and similar) blogs! Wishing you and yours all a Happy Thanksgiving!


Welcome. Please feel free to comment.

Our corporate secretary is notoriously lax when it comes to comments trapped in the spam folder. It may take Velma a few days to notice, usually after digging in a bottom drawer for a packet of seamed hose, a .38, her flask, or a cigarette.

She’s also sarcastically flip-lipped, but where else can a P.I. find a gal who can wield a candlestick phone, a typewriter, and a gat all at the same time? So bear with us, we value your comment. Once she finishes her Fatima Long Gold.
