Giving Thanks

Friday, November 24, 2017

Here are some things I am thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2017.

I am thankful for Roger the auto mechanic & tow truck driver at Brown’s Towing and Auto Repair in South Hill, Virginia.

I am thankful that I remembered to pick up my phone before leaving on my trip this morning.

I am thankful that my phone eventually connected to a wireless network in the I-85 rest stop in Warfield, Virginia.

I am thankful that I had sufficent Airvoice minutes on my phone to call/text/google everyone that I needed to call/text /google from the I-85 rest stop in Warfield, Virginia.

I am thankful for my friend Sara who said sure I can drive to South Hill, Virginia and pick you up.

I am thankful that my phoneless friend Sara’s friend that she works for gave her an iPad that she carries with her all the time now so when I send an email from I-85 asking if anyone is up for a Thanksgiving adventure, she gets the email even though she is out and about doing things.

I am thankful for my neighbor Avonia who heaped mountains of food on me and my friend Sara after we returned from our South Hill adventure.

And last but not least…

I am thankful that my thumb that I slammed in the car door while standing on the flatbed truck with my soon-to-be-towed car eventually stopped bleeding.

I hope that everyone is well and happy. And that your Thanksgiving thanks this year are less wide ranging than mine.

    This sounds like quite an adventure. I’m amazed that you find so much to be thankful for, cuz shutting your finger in the door and getting your car towed does NOT sound like fun.

    No, not really a fun day, but when I first looked at my thumb after getting it out of the car door I was seriously worried that I was going to need stiches, so the fact that a trip to the urgent care was NOT part of the day was certainly something to give thanks for.

    Nothing like a fine Thanksgiving Day Adventure. Hopefully you’ll not feel a need to top this one and it can remain a good story for years to come.

    (Glad the thumb isn’t broken or needed stitches.)

    I say, take the rest of the week off. You’ve earned it.
