Remind me to post next Thanksgiving:


A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York two days before Thanksgiving and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.”

“Pop, what are you talking about?” the son screams.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the father says. “And I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her.”

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like heck they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this.”

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

The old man turns to his wife. “Okay,” he says, “they’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way!”




In that same holiday spirit . . .

John Seiffer:  “A few years ago I told you about the 412 Food Rescue non-profit I support which uses a network of volunteers to distribute food that’s about to go to waste to people in need. You said something like — Why isn’t this everywhere? Well it is not everywhere but it’s in over a dozen cities now, and in Pittsburgh where they started they are also cooking the food and delivering individual meals.   If you feel like mentioning it to your readers, that would be great.”

→ How great!  Pittsburgh Woman’s Food Rescue App Diverts 20 Million Pounds of Surplus into 17mil Meals For Those in Need.  Who can resist chipping in?



Speaking of good people: thanks to The Guy I accidentally PayPalled $1,000 yesterday, for letting me know that, yes, he was TheGuy@gmail.com, but not The-Guy@gmail.com. He returned the $1,000 before I even knew I had screwed up.

See?  Americans are a fundamentally good people.

Mostly.



As you may have seen (thanks, Rachel):

Marcus Lamb, Christian Broadcaster and Vaccine Skeptic, Dies of Covid at 64.  “Mr. Lamb, who co-founded the Daystar Television Network, repeatedly suggested on air that people pray instead of getting vaccinated.”

And William Hartmann, who sought to overturn the 2020 election, and whose Facebook page blasted Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus, also died from COVID last week.

He was apparently a very nice fella but, like millions, had been misled.

Stepping up to get the vaccine protects the nation we all love, Republicans and Democrats alike.

It’s exactly what stepping up to win World War II was, minus the harsh living conditions, separation from loved ones, fighting, amputations, and death.
