A Month At A Time

PREFACE When I said “Join me after Thanksgiving for my next round of Holy Random Stories No One Cares About, Batman!” I was only joking. But look.

NoThanks – Day Thirty, The End

Tonight I’m thankful that I finished NoThanks! I have realized that I am not a daily blogger-type person. Or maybe it’s just that I went more than two months without writing anything and then BAM!

NoThanks – Day Twenty-Two – Memories

Today I’m thankful for memories. Thanksgiving was my favorite holiday when I was growing up. Better to me than even Christmas. Turkey Day usually meant a long weekend in Northern California with my grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins and people I wasn’t even related to but thought I was. Both sets of grandparents…
