Change and the long voyage home

I will be departing on Tuesday back to my beloved city. I shall be returning for an extended stay.My wise mentor will be departing for Hartford. Three of the old crew including my favorite coworker will be leaving for another building. I will miss them as the old boys club is breaking up.

Most Vermonters can not understand my love of NYC. NYC is my home and I love the energy and I will take crazy cabbies over deer anyday. I will sop in to visit the drum master in NJ

I also plan on spening time at the met in the Renoir section. I will mix with friends and family . My new location is going to be a stones throw from Ground Zero.
Some of my Vermont friends will be joining me and I will show them the city I have always loved. NYC can be a scary place but several natives will be part of the contingent.

Give the victims of Ground Zero a salute for me. They are not forgotten.

And remember, it was in New York City that George Washington, on October 3, 1789, first asked Congress to establish a day of Thanksgiving in gratitude for the constitutions of the various states, especially for the National one.

The Pilgrims celebrated a harvest festival, something that had been going on for thousands of years among temperate zone peoples. After that one celebration, there were problems, and it was not celebrated again.

The celebration that we call "Thanksgiving" was, like our nation itself, created by, for, and about citizens of the new United States. The timing--fall--was coincidentally close to the time of the traditional harvest festival, so the two rolled into one.

Thanksgiving is the only All-American celebration, established by our first President in honor of the greatest document ever produced by the mind of man, celebrated year after year, and finally formalized by President Roosevelt.

Raise your glass in toast to the REAL Thanksgiving; it is by every measure a patriotic holiday that is the equivalent of the Fourth of July!

We fly the flag on that day. Eat, drink, and be merry, and be thankful that the Founders gave us the Constitution.
