Thanksgivings Past – Don’t Get Me Started!

Updated on November 26, 2008


Well kids, here it is, Thanksgiving again. Time to pull out the cheap paper plates with the scalloped edges, place your hand on it, draw around your fingers and make you holiday turkey art!

What am I thankful for this Thanksgiving you ask? I’m thankful for all of you who come and read my blogs, pass them to friends and those who comment letting me know when I’m right on the money or so far off the target I’m like a blind guy at shooting practice.

So as I take a couple of days to show my family just how thankful I am to have all of them, I didn’t want to leave you without what to watch or read so welcome to the Some Like It Scott’s Thanksgivings Past posting.

Here’s a video blog about dealing with your relatives this Thanksgiving:

The following link will take you to the first year of my blog and my take on Thanksgiving (as well as the rest of the month of November). Some of these blogs were created for the website at the request of their editor. Enjoy:

Finally, do you best to enjoy your holiday kids. I know for some it can be very difficult being around so much family and food but I want you to remember something. My grandmother used to always say at every holiday for years and years, “This is the last year I’ll make chopped liver.” Or “This is the last year I’ll be making a turkey.” We would roll our eyes at her with great disgust but eventually the year came when she wasn’t there to make the chopped liver or the turkey and we thought, “Wow, she really was sick!” (Or as she once put it, “He got sick and then he died altogether!”) Try to find a way to appreciate those family members you still have because you never really know if this will be your last with them or not. Meanwhile, I intend to spend my holiday running away from the Macy’s people. I’ve gotten so fat that I’m sure they’re going to be hunting me down, trying to put strings on me and walk me down Broadway behind the Garfield balloon - Don’t Get Me Started!
