ROOT: So much to be thankful for ...

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — I am thankful for Youtube and its never-ending supply of videos from my past. I spend hours watching television shows and commercials from my youth. Heck, I have spent more time than anybody ought to just watching the word “special” come spinning out of the screen at me like it used to, oh so long ago.

I am thankful that you read this nonsense. I am thankful that some of you care enough to contact me and tell me how wrong I am or where on my anatomy I can stick my opinions. Thank you all so very much.

There is a Christmas surprise in store this year. Until then, Happy Thanksgiving!
