(If you don't like methamphetamine, go to the place from which I stole this cartoon. They could use your help, I'm sure. If you like methamphetamine, I stole this cartoon from a place that's trying to wipe out your buzz.)
Pleasurable housekeeping time. I need to acknowledge some folks who did their bit in connection with THANKSGIVING COMES FIRST.
Here are the folks who posted TCF pieces since the time of my original 'thank you' posting. Again, many thanks to all who have helped!
Pat, at An Arkansas Stamper, came through for me. Thanks, Pat!
A double helping! Uncle Skip (not really my uncle, but he is somebody's) put the logo up for all to see at Rants And Musings, and also at LionSkip.
My lovely friend, Lime, posted a beautiful piece. It expresses my own sentiments exactly, as well as giving some very interesting and kind reasons of her own for wanting Thanksgiving not to be shunted aside.
Ali P, at My Pod 2, turned me on to this song... The Way Too Early Christmas Song!
The superbly-talented Janine, at Sniffles & Smiles, added the logo to her sidebar.
Kathryn, at Tender Graces, has posted a swell idea to promote other bloggers and such. Very much in the spirit of things, and you should take a look.
Chris Stone kinda sorta added a voice to the fray.
We have a Facebook page! Go HERE.
Once again, if I've missed anyone's contribution, please let me know ASAP. I'll add you on.
And, since all good deeds (that benefit me) should be rewarded without limit, here's a re-run of the folks who helped out earlier:
Desmond Jones directed me to a past post of his that is in the spirit.
Dr. Grumpy had an open letter to President Obama asking that something be done.
My Dedham News, a friend from past campaigns, came through again.
Ananda Girl, at Oodles Of Funch, gave us the good write up!
The entirely lovely Thimbelle, from Creeping Towards Normal, re-ran her piece from last year, one of my absolute favorites. I really love it, and urge everybody to read it.
My good buddy, Buck, from Exile In Portales, posted this. And remember, if you really want to show some thanks, in a concrete way, to some folks who could really use your help, go to the Valour-IT site and make a contribution. There are only three days left!
My Darker Gray Friend, Michelle, at The Surly Writer wrote a somewhat bittersweet piece. Go there and cheer her up, damn it!
My buddy from The Great White North, Jazz, at Haphazard Life, posted this wonderful piece. I especially liked the cartoon.
Diana, from Garden On The Edge somehow managed to work in the subject on her gardening blog. God bless her!
3GirlKnight at By God's Good Grace! certainly graced me.
Brinkbeest, who is wonderfully Dutch, and thus, while in sympathy, has more of a desire to see Sinterklaas come first, which you'll understand when you read it... Hmmmmmmmmm. I seem to have gotten lost in my own sentence construction. Imagine how you feel! Anyway, just go there. You'll understand.
Uncle Skip (once again, not really my uncle) at Rants And Musings had this post. He wanted Halloween to come first. I've been told that it did, but there was little evidence to support the proposition in our neighborhood. ONE kid came to our door! Maybe we should have given out candy rather than turnip?
Sarah, at the whimsically-named Que Sarah Sarah, has the logo posted on her sidebar.
So many fine people willing to help! Thank you, sincerely, from the bottom of my heart.
Soon, with more better stuffing, giblets, and gravy.
More reading material for you: Since I originally posted, Jeni, at Down River Drivel, posted THIS.
And Linda, at Are we There Yet, posted THIS.
Both nice women, who have written nice pieces. Thank you, ladies!
