TL;DR: HAPPY THANKSGIVING! See the end for a funny bit.
Hi, folks! Walt here. I’ve been on light duty these past few weeks, and merely been posting what I’ve thought was a bit different from the interwebs. Most of the time that consisted of pictures and items I thought you hadn’t seen yet. I haven’t editorialized much, and after the run up to the election, I’m sure you were thankful for that.
I’ve been busy in the background, working to find oil and gas to help power your car. And let me tell you, digging a hole in the ground a couple of miles deep ain’t easy.
I’ve also been busy preparing to write a book. This will be my first book ever. Therefore, I expect nothing but excellence to flow from my fingertips. I’ll have help along the way, however. Partnering up with me will be someone who’s published over four dozen novels. If that sounds a bit overwhelming to the novice writer, it is. But I refuse to feel daunted. Most of you who know me can easily guess who this mystery author partner is, but I’ll save the formal announcement until after some real work has been done.
What’s the book about, you ask? We’re keeping that under wraps as well for the moment. Because it’s the idea of the book that managed to sway my oft published author into our little endeavor. It’s a good story. I love this story, and I promise you will too. I’ll try to update this in the spring when some of these ideas have been put down on paper, er, pixels.
I’m writing this post before Thanksgiving here in Texas because I AM thankful. I’m thankful for the opportunity to say hello to you, thankful to be in a great country that manages to survive and even prosper not despite of its division, but often because of it. The combination of all the things makes us stronger. It’s not the weakest link in the chain that’s the problem, because life isn’t a chain. It’s more like a net, a web. Weak links should be supported by strong ones nearby. Strong links by themselves have little value. Try to remember that this Thanksgiving.
Now, a memory of Thanksgivings past. We live in a modern age, and here’s an update to Thanksgiving that just didn’t seem to catch on.
From 1993’s Saturday Night Live… well, just hit play
