Thanksgiving Blessings, 2012

Seriously? Both political parties talking pre-emptive smack barely a week after the election. Partisan politics? Again? So soon? Not even time to catch our breath? For crum's sakes, give it a rest, you guys. Besides, shouldn't you be out on recess? After all, it's Thanksgiving. Yes. Already. The earliest Thanksgiving possible.

Death in the family

My father died in his sleep early in the morning on Nov. 9. I was not present then, because he lived in Michigan. We left for Michigan the next morning. His funeral was on the following Tuesday. All six children, many of the grandchildren and even a few great grandchildren were present. At the cemetery, Dad was given an honor guard ceremony by the Kent County Honor Guard. This included a 21 gun salute and taps. I was given the flag that was on his casket.
