What a year. Politics! Covid! The economy! Unemployment! Demonstrations, Rioting, Looting! We can be thankful a vaccine is on the way and we have a new president – one who knows how to make government work and is already bringing in competent people. So one thing we can be thankful for: this year is coming to an end.
In spite of all this grief, I have a lot to be thankful for. I’m fortunate to be in good health. I get up every morning and everything still works… mostly. Memory, hearing, balance and seeing ain’t what they used to be. As one friend said, “Isn’t old age a bitch… but aren’t we glad we have it.” I’m thankful for my family. My daughter Katy will graduate from SF Stage in June with her BA in psychology. My wife Mary just received a huge honor: the Association of Learning Providers 2020 Spirit Award. So proud of both of them.
Another thing I’m thankful for is you! Your responses to my blogs make it all worthwhile. I love the stimulation your responses bring into my life. Even though fully retired, you make me feel like I’m still out there in the real world. Thank you for that. It means more than you can imagine. I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season. Let’s toast to a better 2021!

Public Health Is the Enemy? WTF?
I’ve been fooling around with a poem about those angry people we see on the news who believe that wearing a mask is an assault by the “deep state” on their freedom.
You Can’t Make Me
My guns are now loaded,
All with big bore,
I’ll fight to the death
For my freedoms galore,
You say I’m deplorable,
You think I’m a chump
But one thing’s for sure
I love Mister Trump
My Harley I ride
With no helmet at all
So why don’t you stuff it
With your silly damn law
I’ll smoke on airplanes
Whenever I please
Try and stop me
You fucking Nazis

And, thankful for your Mr. Gilbert. Enjoy the holiday!
Quite a good poem! NICE! And a wonderful list of things to be thankful for. I’m proud of Kate and Mary too! and of YOU, for your endless creativity and loud voice of reason (in short supply these days.)
Have you and your readers seen this? (I can’t seem to make it a hot link in this response box, so paste it into your browser.)
I second all that Ms. Page wrote, including the murderous cry baby crook’s “concession.”
And look forward to the forthcoming audio book.
