Thanksgiving Day Thursday Thirteen

A heartfelt happy Thanksgiving to all.
I think it's really neat that Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday. I can give my thanks as a Thursday Thirteen.

What Am I Thankful For?

1. My pet human

2. My special mancat, SlyCat, of Evanston, Illinois. He's very special!

3. I get to go outdoors. There are no predators around here to worry about (HA!!! except for me!)

4. Temptations!


5. Catnip

6. My new authentic DKM Snuggle

7. My teddy dog (my pet human wants me to leave that out. FAT CHANCE!!!)

8. I must admit, I'm also thankful for Sam, The Marmalade Cat. I can't help myself for bopping him on the nose or growling at him. But he is a pretty nice gentleman.



9. Bob and Julie.

10. Living in Point Loma

11. My garden

12. My unpaid political advisors, Ginny and Bill

13. For all of my kitty friends on the blogosphere. You are one fantastic bunch of friends!




From WW: I posted this two years ago for Thanksgiving. It holds true today:

I recall a time during my childhood when each family member would say what he/she was thankful for before saying the Thanksgiving Dinner blessing.

In retrospect I think the adults did this for the benefit of the children. Yet, this year it seems appropriate for me to list what I am thankful for, just as a child might do, but with one eye fixed on the great feast laid out in front of her. The road I have travelled upon the last 6 to 7 years, and especially the last 5 years, has been one with many roadblocks, U-turns, and detours. Yet, I have much to be thankful for. So here goes:

I am thankful for:

The expanse of the azure sky
The sparkling oasis in the desert
The warm sun and the cool moon
And the pounding surf at the Cove
For:

My friends, loyal and true.
Glistening shards of wisdom,
Slicing through my soul.
The kindness of doctors.
Hiking partners, old and new.






For:

The antics of a particular tabby,
Cantering with my palomino







For:

A cup of ramen noodles

For:

The gift of a silent voice.
Silence
Stillness
Clarity and insight hard won.



All these things and more.



Happy Thanksgiving to all.
