Another guy, on Sunday, jumped the White House fence and was immediately arrested. Why do people constantly do this? Don’t they know what’s going to happen? Apparently not.
Also apparent is that these idiots aren’t listening to enough Cole Porter. “Don’t Fence Me In:” Those were Porter’s words to live by.
OK. I don’t really know that. I do know I can play that song on my mandolin and that Dick Cavett and ABBA know it too.
I’ll be back on Thursday. I’ll try to write something better but, as you know, there are no promises here.

Do you know who that turkey is in the gif? You really should know, so I’m not going to tell you.
I’m not sure where we’ll be eating tomorrow—I’ll let the kids decide that—but wherever it is, I’ll probably be eating turkey. Nope, on this holiday I usually don’t think outside the box. There are some traditions I like and eating turkey on thanksgiving is one of them.
Writer Richard Ford and his wife usually have a goose on Thanksgiving. I found this out when I first interviewed Mr. Ford around that time of year in 2004—10 years ago. Man, that’s hard for me to believe. We started talking about how to prepare a goose and I turned that into a column in March the following year. Yep, I prepared my first goose in early 2005.
In that photo to the left, that’s me and another goose I cooked—this one when I was living in the Westwood area in Cincinnati. So far, I haven’t prepared a goose here in Covington, Kentucky. I’m going to try and change that in the year 2015.
Regardless of what you eat, I hope tomorrow is whatever you want it to me. I shall return here on Friday.
(Gif from giphy.com and that photo of me and my Westwood goose was taken by my son. I think)
There’s no guarantee I will live to see another day. I think the older you get, the more you put things in proper prospective and today, I’m thinking about my life and also the people I love that’s been in it.

With Thanksgiving coming up, my goal is to get you into the Thanksgiving Day spirit. Maybe what I’m posting here today will accomplish that.
Kidding, of course. You can be in any kind of mood, spirit, etc. that you want to be in. I’m just looking for something to write about.
I’ll write about this movie—“Home For The Holidays.” It’s a 1995 Thanksgiving movie and while it’s not the greatest film in the world, it does have its moments. Holly Hunter is in it, so how bad can it be?
I’m providing, or actually YouTube is, the whole movie for you. You can watch rather than have me write something. The movie is down below.
My mission, accomplished. Or close to it.
