    i’m thankful for you 

    black lives matter

    because we live in a Fox News world where we are convinced the world is going to hell because we have a half-black president, it’s easy to forget how much progress is happening right now.

    groups all around the world are doing historic things to make life better for everyone.

    people Are trying.

    the fact that same-sex marriages swept through this country faster than those with hidden agendas could stop it was beautiful.

    last night i picked up a 22-year-old Saudi gentleman. he asked me what i thought of his country. i said, your country reminds me of mine: we mix religion and politics too much. whenever the two are separate things are so much better.

    im the biggest Christian you probably know. when some people get drunk and run around saying they love everyone, i say things like i need to build a church.

    and still i think life is better when the government has nothing to do with religion. especially one particular religion.

    why are government buildings closed on sundays? wouldnt that actually be the best time for them to be opened? if i ever had kids, id love for them to get bible study as much as possible: but not in the public schools. wtf. what about the kids who aren’t into the bible? f them?

    im grateful of people who fight for the whole. im thankful for people who use their creativity to express love. any sucker mc can bring fear.

    even my kittens are afraid of shadows.

    im so thankful for you, the light.

    Happy Thanksgiving 

    20131128-204951.jpg

    theres a busblog tradition that has been interrupted. but now its back and it’s nice.

    what you do is to go to The Pantry, sit at the counter and order a nice turkey dinner with a friend.

    20131128-204634.jpg

    for $18 they give you a huge amount of turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, peas, stuffing, and cranberry sauce.

    they also give you chicken soup, cole slaw and a half a loaf of sourdough bread.

    because im black i ordered an orange soda.

    20131128-204549.jpg

    then when youre done you order two or three dinners to go and drive a few blocks to Skid Row and hand them out to the poor.

    true theres lots of shelters who give out food, especially on holidays, but some people are too wasted or immobile to make it there

    or in our case tonight, some people eat like kings at 2pm but by 8pm theyre hungry again

    and are stoked when a sweet black camaro shows up, pops open the trunk and gives them a little more

    open other end

    not everyone can make the perfect plate of cb sauce but, with the help of jeanine, voila!

    people literally went crazy when they ate it.

    example a

    because no one trusts scientists, they cooked a regular turkey and of course there was the deep fried buddy

    there was also plenty of water. actually there was plenty of everything.

    people ate and were amazed. so amazed they didnt even eat at the table because it glowed of awesome too much.

    shack and dog

    then people started playing with the dog

    then mary started dancing on karisas brand new table

    then jeanine and karisa started talking in russian. and they couldnt stop after a while.

    then hot toddys were fixed up real nice along with dessert. which was delightful.

    then people started passing out. which is always funny.

    merry christmas y’all!

    the grateful old man 

    keep the han in hanukkah

    when i was ten star wars came out.

    grateful for that.

    when i was fourteen back in black came out.

    grateful for that too.

    something tells me that when heart attacks start hitting my age group,

    someone will figure out how to prevent them with ice cream.

    eat your ice cream today, gramps? the kids will yell at me

    as they zip past in their jet packs.

    i dont know why i worry about things.

    better things just always show up.

    just ask the ipad youre reading this on.

    which im also grateful for.
