I’m in Love with Me

My thanks to Magnar Nordal for this swell gag. It seemed like a fitting way to launch into the holy holiday season. A commercial pilot and flight instructor, Magnar is making the friendly skies safer and—I presume—funnier.

A Popeye Thanksgiving

Cultivating a sense of being grateful is something I’ve been working on for awhile now. Besides being the right thing to do, it’s also good for you. Chances are, you’ll feel better—and I don’t mean just emotionally and spiritually—although likely that too—but also physically. (Supposedly, optimists live longer.)

I’m not brushing aside all the negative things. There’s lots of them.

But perhaps because of all those negatives, I’m more grateful than usual this year for so many things. Family, good friends and…heck, just for being alive and reasonably healthy, And, of course, I’m extremely grateful for all you readers. Thank you for appreciating my weird sense of humor and participating for so many years.

Happy Thanksgiving!
