DAY #34

Thanksgiving 2018,

What am I thankful for? (Not all-inclusive)

  • For having been given the opportunity to take this journey.
  • For being in good health & mind (in spite of myself).
  • I’m thankful for the life I’ve been given to live.

Special Shout Outs:

Marcia.  She gave me life.  She took me from a world of mediocrity to one where “the sky’s the limit,” and she gave it with unconditional love.  I think of her as an angel sent by God to show me the way, and I am so thankful for that.  When Marcia came into my life (again, in spite of myself, I was such an idiot), everything changed, it was like the sun rose and it never set, not another day did I walk in the dark.  God, I miss her so much.  I’m thankful that the day will come when we’ll be together again.

Kathy, Roxanne, Margaret (Ed), Steve (Lee Ann), Nancy (Jeff).  Marcia’s siblings.  If you searched for a thousand years, you would not find more special, caring people.  To be able to be with them as family is like winning the World Series, Superbowl, Stanley Cup, Oscar, and Nobel Prize on the same day.

Sharon (Marc).  I’m blessed to have such a special sister.  I got to tell you, when you have a family like I do, you really do have everything!


The day was a low key affair.  Didn’t do much (gee there’s a shock), spent most of the day hanging around the trailer and watched some football.

Being alone on this day wasn’t a lonely one for me.  Sure the family and I were separated in body, but they were with me in thought (and spirit) and I’m thankful for that.  I feel so sad for people who have no one in their lives.  that’s a cold, hard and scary alone.

I did go out to Walmart in the late afternoon (4:30 pm), and bought some paint to touch up a few spots on the trailer ceiling, and a mirror which I stuck Velcro on the back and stuck to the bathroom wall.  Curious to see how long that stays up.  When I got to Walmart I noticed about five police vehicles outside and when I went into the store, there were employees everywhere.  Seems “Black Friday” was soon to start at Walmart (6:00 pm). and I was there a tad before.  After finding out what was going on, I felt like a minnow with the sharks beginning to gather outside.  Quickly found the paint & mirror and vamoosed out of there.  The other biggie for the day was to do some laundry.  This State Park doesn’t’ have laundry facilities so I had to go outside the campground.

Another day in the life…
