Happy Turkey Day…a time to be thankful.

I’m truly thankful for so many reasons…without further ado.

   I’m thankful for having a beautiful and understanding wife.
   I’m thankful for having a happy, healthy daughter.

 I’m thankful for having a steady job that allows me to help others.

I’m thankful for my hometown baseball team, the Milwaukee Brewers.

                                 I’m thankful for home run baseballs.

     I’m thankful for the Patron Saint of Police Officers – St. Michael.

    I’m thankful for living in a nation where I can be free and proud.

I’m also thankful for:  Military personnel, people with good manners, leaders, modern medicine, teachers, food on my table, waking up each day, role models, clothes on my back, playoff baseball in Milwaukee, bulletproof vests, a stadium with a roof, dependable vehicles, great parents, peace and quiet, snowblowers, bleacher seats, sunny days, strong faith, MLBlogs frontman Mark Newman and last but not least…

Each and every one of you in the MLBlogging network. 
Without you reading this, I’m just talking to myself (which I do anyway, but you know what I mean).

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

    Happy, I’m jealous bro, I don’t even have a Matt Holliday autograph, good job with that. I must tell you, your probably the only police officer I ever thought was cool. You need to get to get down to Coors Field next season so we can do some snaggin man. You seem like a good father and I respect the hell out of that. You and your family have a great T-Day and keep up the great blogging…D

    Hey Youngster, thanks for stopping by our blog. After reading your Thanksgiving entry, it’s clear that you are a much better human being that we are at The Max. Makes us feel kinda silly. Anyway, happy turkey day and congrats on the baby boy.
