It was one of those rare convergences of timing and people. It was as much family reunion as Thanksgiving Day dinner. And it was Sylvia's birthday, too.
One year later Adm. Fox and I are in a seaside condo getting ready to head out to the Banderas Bay beach for a Thanksgiving afternoon that will include swimming, boogie-boarding, a margarita or two and possibly a big fish dinner on someone's boat this evening.
Not exactly traditional, but the spirit of Thanksgiving is still here, big time.
Thanksgiving is the one day that as a nation we seem to recognize that we have a lot to be thankful for.
Me? As I wake up every morning my first thoughts are about how lucky I am. Truly lucky and truly blessed with a great family and great friends.
Happy Thanksgiving to y'all.
Today, tomorrow and to infinity and beyond!
