Happy Thanksgiving Day 2007


A BRILLIANT! day weather-wise today- sunny and pleasantly crisp. Give thanks for that.

People NOT drinking because they're driving today. Give thanks- praise & respect for that.

Last but foremost- having true friends and family. Eternal thanks for that.

May the Great Spirit bless each and every one of you...

It's Beginning To Feel A Lot Like...

Winter.

There's still a chance of some light snow this evening- as present temperatures edge ever closer to the freezing mark (it's 32.5-degrees F here in south K.C.).

This will create some slick spots on wet bridges & overpasses- and a total accumulation of less than 1-inch most Metro areas.

I sure feel in the holiday spirit today (especially after 3 egg nogs and rum lol).

A very happy Thanksgiving Day to all and remember the Love.
