The Mrs. & I are 5 1/2 hours away from midnight, close enough to wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving! :)

Remember when WKRP in Cincinnati dropped Turkeys from a helicopter as a Thanksgiving promotion?

"With God as my witness. I thought Turkeys could fly"  ;D

Dominus vobiscum
There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

Give Thanks to the Lord for he is good; for his mercy endureth forever!  :angel:
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  We had a wonderful dinner with my family and a friend from my mother's Church over.  Unfortunately, my brother could not join us.  He had to guard the nuke plant.   :'(
