Happy Thanksgiving!

November 27, 2008

The Turkey Trot is over (five miles; don't ask) and blood has begun to flow back to my extremities. Seems like a good time to count my blessings:

-- My amazing sons and beautiful wife;

-- Mom, my brothers and sister, my uncle and aunts, my in-laws and brothers- and sisters-in-law, my nephews and nieces, and all my cousins;

-- Work that is interesting and fulfilling;

-- The good fortune to live in a country that has a genius for reinventing itself;

-- Being able to run five miles at my advanced age.

Miss you, Dad. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

-- Mitch Nauffts
