Hello, and welcome back to the thankful world of the Dogpound. As you are awareI have been writing furiously to get ahead of my Master’s demands for the month of November. I am in crunch time, since every week in November I have something going on to make it a short week…one week I am going to Ohio to watch my Buckeyes play…another weekend I am attending my oldest daughter’s wedding then, it is Thanksgiving weekend where I am going to my sister’s for a few days. Then depending how things go, I may have to go to court because my neighbor’s elevator does not go all the way to the top floor…if you get my drift. That event is followed by our annual physical inventory, which we all look forward to with great anticipation…NOT! Then, to add icing to the cake, the other buyer is going to be out of the office for 4-6 weeks, meaning I have to pick up part of his work load, and depending how much my boss contributes…I may have to take on more than my fair share…which is about even money right now. Despite all of that, I am still thankful that I have the opportunity to get up every morning and go to work, and I am also very grateful that I am physically able to get around and take care of myself. Many are not that fortunate, and I always remember to give thanks for each day because there are no guarantees and things can change in a blink of an eye. What are you thankful for? Take a few minutes and give it some serious thought.


“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of Thanksgiving.” – W.T. Purkiser
One turkey to another…”I am a bit worried. The farmer just unfriended me.”
One turkey to another….”I have a lot of friends on Facebook, and they all want me to come over for dinner.”
What did the turkey say to the hunter? “Quack..Quack!”
What happens when two turkeys get into a fight? You can bet one of them gets the stuffing knocked out of him.
Why did the turkey wear stilts? No one wants to eat a flamingo for Thanksgiving.
Lawyer: I have some good news and some bad news.  Client: Well, give me the bad news first.  Lawyer: The bad news is that the DNA tests showed that it was your blood they found all over the crime scene.  Client: Oh no! I’m ruined! What’s the good news?  Lawyer: The good news is your cholesterol is down to 130!
This guy gets to the Pearly Gates, and St. Peter says, “Now, wait just a moment, before I let you in, I need to ask you, have you ever done anything to put others first, or defended the weak or innocent, things like that?” The man answers, “Why yes, I saw this man with a Corvette by the side of the road, and he was yelling at his wife, and threatening her, so I walked up to him and screamed at him to leave her alone, and if he didn’t I’d kick his head like this…. and I kicked a huge place on his Corvette’s door.” St. Peter answers, “Wow, that’s pretty good, when did you do that?” The man answers, “Oh, about 4 minutes ago.”

That is all I have for this holiday weekend. As always, be good, do good, play safe, and always be thankful for all things both big and small. HAPPY THANKSGIVING. JR
