Lets Be Honest... I'm Thankful For Bacon, Kevin and The Dust Bowl.

 Is there anything better than bacon
It goes with everything, apparently even dark chocolate.
 I am also thankful for Kevin Bacon as it seems we are all related. 
I think he is mentioned in the Old Testament.
Bacon certainly is.
Here are a few other things I am thankful for today.

 I'm thankful that...
according to Groupon I can become a personal trainer, online no less and half price.
Think of it...maybe I can train people online, while sitting on my couch eating chocolate and bacon.

I'm thankful for
Dragon Baby...check it out on youtube. 
And Gangnam Style
If that doesn't make you want to get up and dance you might check for a pulse.

I'm thankful for the Dust Bowl
Really, you say?!
Well, evidently that new documentary by the very talented Ken Burns (The Baseball Series is still in the original wrapping in a closet somewhere)has done it again... this time with dust balls.
The Baseball series, we watched on TV.
Then I bought it.
 Probably because the hubby couldn't stop reminding me that he wanted to be a professional baseball player. 
Hey, you're a man, under 6 ft, 240 lbs... football and basketball were not an option. 
As a little kid, your dad would drive past Shea Stadium, you in the backseat, fogging up the window, face pressed to the glass... leaving puppy drool.
 You knew every player on both New York teams, correction... on most teams. 
You still think The Boston Red Socks are awesome. Gag, choke...
 Tell me something I don't already know. 

Back to the dust...
Evidently, The Dust Bowl put Kansas on the map and showed the dedication or stubbornness of it's people.
While New York is called the Big Apple, a melting pot, Tennessee is known for volunteers and Elvis. Florida for overly tan, retired rich people, drug runners, and sunshine.
 Illinois is known for dirty politicians and high taxes. Oklahoma is known for Cowboys, Indians and Casinos.
Kansas is known for it's dust.
What a legacy.
They are a resilient, if not a bit soft in the head breed.
But, I must be thankful to them for sticking it out.
I have Whole Foods, Starbucks and amazing cinemas thanks to them.

I'm thankful for...
The Whooping Cranes arriving in Central Kansas.
I have no idea if they are bringing Whooping Cough with them, maybe that's something completely different.

I'm thankful...
that the Fluoride Bill in Wichita did not pass.
Just say NO to Flouride. 
It's a gateway drug you know.
Never mind the fact that my siblings and I took fluoride pills growing up in N.Y. and never had a cavity or any major jail time. 
There was that one incident... but it was a complete misunderstanding.

I'm thankful...
that when I take my 2008 SUV to be serviced I can look at that Porsche 911, list price of $99,579.00 and wonder if that will be my loaner for the day.
A girl can dream...

 I'm thankful for
Where would we be without it?

I'm convinced that God in all His majesty and grace, loves a good belly laugh.
He gave us the gift of cheerfulness.

One more huge thankful thought...
Happy Birthday Sweet Daughter Of Mine.
She is a delight and good medicine to my heart.

Psalm 15:15
"A cheerful heart has a continual feast."

Proverbs 17:22
"A cheerful heart is good medicine."

 I hope you find things to laugh and be cheerful about today. 
I love a good laugh. 
Care to share? 
Don't be shy.
