Positive Happy Givings

Not being a believer in any higher powers I don’t get all wrapped up in the concept of a Thanksgiving. So rather than getting into things I’m thankful for, I’d rather get into things I feel positive or happy about.

I feel positive or am happy because:

Auntie is my friend and she comes up with more disgusting posts than I do.
Barbie(Who will now be known as "The Black Mamba") keeps is so together especially when her boss is an ass hole. His ass will get kicked.
Bayoy and Lach because they are a great couple and their love shows.
CB for phone calls that keep me up-to-the-minute informed.
Chantel has found love and a new life in San Francisco.
Dalia took the big step and moved to Montreal with a new job.
Darev greets the posts here with such enthusiasm.
Donna is able to ride her horse by herself and enjoys Iris DeMent.
Evil gets to move closer to Mel.
, I know you’re out there, I can hear you breathing.
g remains true to his Warrenton roots and mindset though I call him on it.
Ginger is living the Country Life I often write about and she appreciates it, and she has a back hoe.
Gearhead always has great mechanical advice.
Jaggy has found love in someone that dances.
JB who still reads even though I insult her Woo Woo side every now and then.
Jeff is pretty playful for a Republican that shaves his head.
Kris fits reading my stuff in her busy grand child schedule.
L.… who reads every day, but never comments, and she gave me strawberries…and she’s cute.
Lori Hahn for dedicating so much time and energy into her cause.
Loopy for having such a good attitude when crappy things happen to her and for her lack of fear for power tools.
Matt and KP will soon be parents and he’s till my fishing hero.
Mel for the term "Tuna-Skank."
for sending me cool emails every day.
Mo3 for enjoying her lot in life as a mother of three and dedication to the animal shelter.
Moose cracks me up every time he writes.
Nulaanne has found love.
is doing the education thing.
RichPix for keeping me honest.
Syd is so cool and is a true sister to me and she is who I go to when I need a laugh.
Trop is coming to visit me next summer.
Walt for bucking the system.
Weese for posting photos of her talented wife mudding the drywall, topless.
Zoe and BP are attempting to have a child.

What a nifty idea! I'm thankful for your common-sense blogging, and to Mel for sending me here. Oh, and the interesting folks I'm finding, thanks to your comment section.

Nothing for you to be thankful for, but I read as well. After several hours of silence from the blogosphere (time differences) yours is a little reminder every morning that the rest of the world is waking up to a new day. :-)

I feel positive for, happy about, and thankful for your writings and friendship. My day isn't complete without the opportunity to read your daily missives.

Lisa, I positive happy givings for your coming here every day. I didn't know since I don't check my stats. Feel free to chime in more often. I'd love getting the Australian take on the conversations we have here.

Donna, it's good to share.

Jeff, thanks, man.

Guy, I'm grateful you're out there reminding me every morning that there is a normal world and things in it worth looking at and thinking about. You always start my day off on a positive note.

On another note: I think the aussies need to quit mucking about and get on GMT like the rest of civilization. All this "Oh, I'm in another time zone" stuff is getting old. (grin)

And whoah! What's all this about topless drywalling? Has anybody told the japanese yet? We could make a fortune!

You forgot Anonymous, Guy, haha! Hey, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones. Ours will be spent at our son's and I'll be leaving soon but just wanted to stop by and wish you a good day! Ours is rather somber...we have friends very dear to our hearts who are in Mumbai, India, right now and outside of a very short, terse text message, no one has heard another word from them. One thing I'm thankful for this day is I'm not a world traveler...the good ol' USA has it's problems but I'm happy right where I'm at. This terrorist stuff is striking too close to home. A month ago when the American couple was killed in Ecuador is when my younger brother and his wife were there. Before I heard the couple's names, my heart 'bout stopped until I found out it wasn't my brother. No wonder my hair is turning WHITE so fast!!!

I'm thankful that Lars Larson didn't take the day off.
I'm also thankful that KXL, our local, totally fair and ballanced and totally unbiased FOX station shifted sports onto an FM station.
Now, I'll just make my way back to the shop and get back to work, where the radio is already playing!
Happy thanksgiving!

Darev, this is normal, eh?

Lovvies back at cha, Lach

Kris, my hair is white and I have few worries, though I suppose I should.

Auntie, I never forget Pam...

Gearhead, you mean you aren't having Thanksgiving Gull down at you're Uncle's farm?

Dalia,Canadian Thanksgiving is in September? It's a good idea to get it over with early so you don't have to be nice until Xmas. I'm glad we found one another.

And, Guy, I feel positive about you too. But, really, I hope to someday have someone in my life I can take a photo of topless while mudding their drywall.
