Well gang, Thanksgiving is here again. It’s not hard for me to be thankful. I get about as much of what I need as most anybody I know. Big changes are coming for me, for good or for bad, and I will be ready for them. For now, I’m enjoying where I am and what I have. Such as this old pooch.

I need to say: I appreciate you all so much. For the readership, for the criticism, for the gifts, for the support, for all of it. I’ve never been a good correspondent, but I’ve been particularly bad this fall, with everything going on. I’m sorry for that. You are appreciated, and you have my thanks.
