I echo the sentiment, and add that it just isn't a "real" Thanksgiving without revisiting this great piece by the late humorist Art Buchwald:

Thank you both and I hope everyone had a happy holiday too. As well as our missing posters who have not been around for awhile. Jpochard how did your holiday go?

It was kind of bittersweet for us with the way things have gone lately but in spite of that I do have a lot to be thankful for. The new job I started this year has brought us more money and given me more opportunities to travel but not too far from home, and my husband's health has gotten better. Thanks for the help with that Linda. And the Padres got new owners as the Dodgers did too so we both get fresh starts with spring training in 2013 and a full season with new owners and new directions for our teams (I hope). I also am grateful to live in San Diego as it is a wonderful place to return to from the trips I take for work.

I'm just LOLing at this one since I did read the last post a couple of weeks ago, but rereading it now, I noticed the way this read:

I realize you were referring to the help with the job, but it struck me as funny, the thought that I would have the power to help improve his health, so I couldn't help but comment. LOL Laughing
