Hey Gina, how are you? What's your Thanksgiving plans?

Can't remember a Lum & Abner in a 7pm hour before.

Hi, Vision. Just the usual for Thanksgiving, nothing new. Are you having people over to your house or going somewhere?

Yeah, I’m surprised he didn’t start another Johnny Dollar.

Hi, Doc! Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

Although it’s a tough year and tough time, we still have plenty to be thankful for, as always.

What's the usual, family over?

I'll be heading down to Willaimsburg and be housed with a lot of psychotic liberals.

I enjoy Lum & Abner.

The L & A Society used to publish a monthly newsletter which was quality.

Also had a service where they dubbed tapes from their library for a nominal fee. You had to send them blank tapes, maz of 5 at a time, for the recordings.

Yea it's a quick classic. But I don't like all the “sparing the turkey” stuff. If you want to give the turkey a pardon, then don't eat turkey.

I made a quick trip to DC at the end of last week.

My youngest daughter's think tank was releasing a video in homage to Leonard Read's "I, Pencil" essay that they are hoping to provide free of charge to schools and anywhere they can to encourage appreciation for free market principles.

She received a credit at the end.

It is available on youtube here ---> I, Pencil: The Movie. It's 6:33 in length.

Going to Clearwater Beach Hilton for a buffet style dinner outside with a view of the Gulf. We did it last year and liked it, so we’re going to do it again.

I'll check out the video...

How was DC? Were the leaves still on the trees? The weather's been good lately.

Clearwater Beach looks perfect. White sand and turquoise water is quite the change from the traditional Thanksgiving backdrop.

That’s nifty! Lum & Abner fans, and they probably came before Trekkies. :-)

Vision, the usual is us going to Texas. We’re planning on leaving very early tomorrow morning. It’s a twelve-hour drive—the PITS! We’ll come back, Lord willing safely, on Saturday.

I didn’t want to post that we’re leaving the state on the public side. :-)

I hope you have the smoothest time possible with your lib family/friends, and a good time with your Dad.

Some naked trees, others incredibly brilliant -— almost iridescent -— with color. I really enjoyed the cool weather.

Oh, I’m still horrified at the “election,” but otherwise okay. I wrote a couple of columns that pretty much got it out of my system for the most part.

I could have sworn I hit “private reply.” It irks me that I didn’t.
