It’s the little things………Happy Thanksgiving 2017!

It’s Thanksgiving week. Here is where we post the things we are thankful for.  Just in that sentence, I’m thankful, that as an adult, I can end that sentence with a preposition and no one can stop me.

Like many, I have much to be thankful for, but let’s look at the really small things:

10.  I’m thankful for my hand doctor who said keep typing, your arthritis won’t get worse or better from it.  Thank you?

9.  I’m thankful for my new Poise pads that move seemlessly with my body, even though my body seems to move more problematically every day.

8. I’m thankful for my cleaning lady. Pretty much says it all.

7.  I’m thankful for Netflix, Amazon Prime and even Network TV. Stop judging.

6. I’m thankful for socks.

5.  I’m thankful for Pumpkin Spice smells. I know it’s overdone, but I still love it, just maybe not in my socks.


4. I’m thankful for my bathroom scale. Okay, it’s a love-hate relationship but it keeps me honest, especially this time of year.

3. I’m thankful for coffee. I’ve cut back but my friend advised me yesterday that it’s the one thing that has all upside and no downside.  I shall now return to my devotion to cafe au lait.

2. I’m thankful for just being where I am. It’s pretty great here.

1.  I’m most thankful for you, my readers, who so kindly stop in on occasion to share a minute together. If you are or ever have been a caregiver, a special thanks to you for your love and sacrifice to your loved one. If you ever just did one kind thing in your life…and I know you have, each and every one of you….thanks for that, you may never know how you changed someone’s day or life.

I’d like to thank my Readers..and, of course World Peace

So, if you know me and my quirky husband, you know I love candy and he loves beer.

How fitting that our lucky winner was a combination of all our loves!

Mary JanesMy dear friend, who is oh generous with her time as my very patient  French teacher, Mary Jane is lucky number 33! Tres bon, n’est-ce pas?

I was so glad it wasn’t someone named “Salmon” because it may be the only thing I really hate to eat….even someone named “Brussel Sprouts” would have been welcomed with open arms!


Reader WinIf you didn’t see the “33” on the Rolling Rock, please look again. So that next time you can go around to your favorite watering holes and see if you can figure out how Mr. Quirky makes his lucky picks!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU , THANK YOU  to my AWESOMEST READERS!  I hope to continue to entertain you…..and am working hard on getting my book published so you can sit down with me for a few hours and eat candy and drink beer. Sounds good, n’est-ce pas?

It’s your lucky day……….

So apparently  my gorgeous, amazing readers are kind of a shy bunch. Or, they were making so many of their own laughs for 4th of July weekend that they got tears of joy in their keyboards and are now frantically trying to comment for that gift they know is rightfully theirs!

I made my hubby put his magic number in that sealed envelope. So we have to get to 50 comments before we open it. Like I said, it could be 1, it could be 50…I have no clue.

Since we are half-way there and only nice people have commented so far, I invite every previous commenter to go again…make a stampede like The Lion King, then one of you can go buy all the Hakuna Matata you want (or whatever 50 bucks would get you).

Good luck and thanks again for all your support!
