Thanksgiving 2008

I'm taking a break from helping prepare for Thanksgiving. We will have 12 people today and 16 on Friday (our traditional left-over get-together with friends). We listened to Alice's Restaurant at noon....I wonder how widespread this tradition is. I decided to youtube "Arlo Guthrie Alice's Restaurant", and here's one for your viewing and listening pleasure

Of course, as often happens when I get clips from thing led to another, and I was looking at all kinds of related videos. With Arlo Guthrie came clips of "This Land is Your Land". That song feels very American and reminds me of Thanksgiving

Here's a young Arlo Guthrie with Pete Seeger

Here's something a bit later

Then I longed for the Bruce Springsteen version....which I suspect may show up at either the inauguration or at the Super Bowl

Then I found this one....Peter, Paul & Mary "If I Had a Hammer" very cool

I am thankful for anyone and everyone who reads my blog,
and thankful to live in this great country, where we collectively did the right thing, and thankful we had the opportunity to do it, and we did it, and
thankful to be celebrating Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Happy Holiday to all.
