Happy Thanksgiving To You

Take A Mulligan

Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Since my next column won't arrive until probably after Thanksgiving, today's column is dedicated to this special day and a few of the things I am thankful for. Now of course, we're all thankful for family, friends, freedom, our spouses, children, grandchildren and all of that but here are a few of my somewhat "out-of-the-way" things I'm thankful for. Sorry you're just going to have to endure it, my good friends. So here are a whole bunch of things John Sheda is thankful for....

Self-adhesive stamps,

The music from the 60s and 70s.

Grandkids that can help with the computer and phone.

Caller ID; (obvious reasons).

Amazon Prime

Chili, (especially the left-over kind).

Christmas movies; well, most of them anyway.

Pizza!! What would the world be without this invention?

Aglets. Poor lil' guys never get their due.

Gel Pens. Gotta have 'em.

Snow!! Sure, well kinda, when it's falling! Maybe. Hmmmm...let me think this one over again.

Trash Collectors. They do make our lives easier.

Deb's Spaghetti Salad and her Pretzel Dessert and her mashed potatoes. Which is why I look the way I do!!

My 50th class reunion last summer. First one I went to. Had a great time but they all sure looked old.

Phytoplankton! Never forget this little rascal.

Ringing the Bell for the Salvation Army. Sign up today!!

Sandwiches. Any kind, anywhere. Anything you can squeeze between two slices of bread is good.


The Old Geezers. My good friends at the Senior Center.

Salt & Vinegar Chips.

Dark Chocolate Candy Bars.

The 5-second rule.


Well, these are just a few of my favorite things I'm thankful for.
