Thanksgiving 2014

This picture was taken, a bit hurriedly, just before we sat down for Thanksgiving dinner.

We followed our usual custom. Before we began to eat, proceeding from youngest to oldest we each said what we were thankful for. I, of course, was most thankful for my dear wife but there were other things for which I’m thankful.

I’m thankful that my new job circumstances have renewed my confidence in my abilities. If you’ve never experience doubt in that, I don’t know that you can appreciate what a difference that has made for me.

I’m also thankful for Tally’s life. I learned so much from her! I miss her dearly but I’m very thankful for her life.

It should go without saying but I’m also thankful for all of you who stop by here to read and even, perhaps, to comment. This blog is an important part of my life and it would be impoverished without the little coterie of commenters here. Thank you.

    No, Thank you.

    Yes, thank you for consistently producing excellent work on this blog.


    As for doubting oneself’s ability to do work – this I understand. I honestly don’t even know if i could do my old jobs if I got them again. Rot sets in, and there’s not a damned thing to be done about it. You were quite fortunate to have had your consulting business thru the years, even if it became attenuated in recent years.

    Anyway, enjoy the bounty!

    I also have enjoyed your blog, Dave. Consistently you seem to boil your conclusions to an issue down to one or two succinctly worded sentences. And, whether or not I agree with you, your analysis of current events are usually thought-provoking and very fair-minded.
