Giving Thanks and Naming Names

With Thanksgiving almost here I had an old friend point out to me that I have a lot worth giving thanks for in my life. Last year I wrote a few individual post to specific people. This year I'm doing one big one to everything and everybody. So Settle in this could take a bit.
(Also, I will be breaking one of my rules and using peoples real first names (except for bloggers for whom I'll use thier blog names). Sorry if anyone gets mad but deal ok?)

To my family who despite all my faults have seen fit to not deny my bloodline. Wether alive or passed away they have helped to make me who I am today (so it's partly thier fault!). I can't name them all (the differance between a long post and a way too long post) but I do thank them all. In particular (in no order): Ron, Patricia, Terry, Kelly (Yes, even her), Ruby, David, Heather, Patrick, Ryan, Laura, Adam, Cyril, Beatrice, Eva, Russell, Marjorie, Christopher, Nicole, Nicolas, Samantha, John, Penny, Tanya, George, Maureen, Shani, and so many others.

To the kids of my friends, the little scamps who I love to see but also don't mind to give back when the diaper was full: Ivy, Micheal, Conner, Cameron, Terance, Terelle, Rissa.

To my co-workers who were also friends and over the years helped make 40 hours pass so fast: Andrew, Karen, Steve, Debbie, Gerry, Kristen, Carlos, Kirsten, Ed, Denise, Lisa, Joe, Eileen, Andrew, Mike, Heather, Pete, Ed, Bridgette, Craig, Bob, Marci, Marcos, George, George-ann, Sammy, Ferd, Evelyn, Doug.

To the women who've shared my bed. They have been both lovers and friends and will always have a place in my heart: Jackie, Sharon, Jill, Meesha, Ruth, Elysia, Marie.

To the little things in life that have helped keep me going: Jack Daniels, Absolut, Guiness, Comics, Cards, Hallmark, Music, Movies, Photgraphy, Big breasted women, East Haven Beach, East Haven Graveyard, .....

Ok I'll stop there before this gose on for another few pages. You get the idea. To all these thing and people and to so much more than I can put in this blog... Thank you. If I have forgotten anything or anybody in my sad and slowly fading mind forgive me.
Have a great Dead Turkey Day everyone. May you also find a great list of things to be thankful for.
