Alice's Restaurant Massacre." A hilariously funny, and long (18-minute) song about the stupidity of too much of life. It's a classic song, but I've been a fan of Arlo since probably... high school. He was one of them there hippies, and even though I never really lived the hippy life, I've always associated with them mentally. I suppose you could say I've always been a hippy at heart. Perhaps it just came from the times I lived in, or the neighbors I had at the time, I don't know. Sometimes I worry that I'm more of a "peace & love" hippy than I am a Christian. I hope not; I hope one can be both. I think you can.
WKRP in Cincinnati' where the station manager had the brilliant idea to drop live turkeys from a helicopter. "I swear, as God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly." Hahahahaha... That was a funny show, and one of the funniest episodes ever on the airwaves in my opinion.
So, those are some of my Thanksgiving "things": family, football, fine music, and funny flightless bird incidents. As I write this, maybe the thing that's lacking this year is more faith-related thankfulness. Not sure how to fill that void, but I guess noticing it is a good place to start.
Thanksgiving Day 2015 will include sleeping in, having the Feipel's over for a big lunch, watching football, and maybe going to see the new James Bond movie tonight. A nice low-key relaxing day.
