Happy Thanksgiving to the Souers family!

Right back at the Carlsons!


Thanksgiving is the perfect storm of overindulgence: plenty of beer, plenty of football, followed by plenty of food. And best of all?

No political discussions, no arguments, no choosing up sides (other than picking a favorite NFL team).

The fantasy footballers are amazing. You get comments like "hey, that guy Snodgrass is a helluva safety! I got him for a song in our secondary draft." To which I feel obligated to nod and say "um hum, yep, you bet".

Of course I never heard of Snodgrass (or whoever).

Then out comes the food and we all take a moment to express thanks for something meaningful in our lives. Nobody says anything related to 90% of what we hear on the news 24/7.

And for that (and for this day) I'm thankful. VERY thankful!

Yeah, no politics for a day was really nice.
So was visiting people I hadn't seen in awhile, all the family phone calls, the food, drink and football.
VERY thankful.
