“Well, you just told me that I had a plethora,
and I would just like to know if you know what it means to have a plethora.
I would not like to think that someone would tell someone else he has a plethora,
and then find out that that person has no idea what it means to have a plethora.”
El Guapo (played by Alfonso Arau) from the movie ¡Three Amigos!
(a vast array of tomatoes and vegetables at Campo di Fiori, Rome, Italy / Julie Cook / 2018)
A plethora…an abundance…a profusion…
And that is exactly what I am grateful for…
I am grateful for the abundance of family and friends that I have both here in
my small corner of the blogosphere as well as those in my small corner of this world
in which we live.
Thank you…each of you for stopping in…
for visiting, reading, caring, writing, sharing, loving…
and for making me smile, laugh, cry…as well as think…
Thank you for being my friend…even for those of you who do not see eye to eye
with what I write.
May God’s Grace abundantly bless each of you…
Keeping you safe, happy, warm, dry, well fed, free from harm and at peace…
during not only this Thanksgiving Day but throughout this season of wonderment,
joy and awe.
Oh, and by the way…The Mayor has requested that her closet aides accompany her on a bit of
an excursion during the next couple of days.
Something about wanting to visit the place where she has her earliest family roots
while taking in a bit of serene history…she’s calling it a working holiday…
she can be such a slave driver…but when she says jump, we aides say how high 🙂
Plus… if you read yesterday’s post, I lived through the pumpkin pie making as well.
The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
God’s blessings on you and your family. You’ve had quite a year. I’m glad to have been a part of it. Your love of history shines through almost all your posts. Your love of art is evident and your photography is amazing. I’m so grateful to God for placing you in my life.

Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving 😍😍
Several things. Happy Thanksgiving my friend. Three Amigos is one of the best movies ever made. Steve Martin is a comic genius, and one of the greatest banjo players ever; I got to get his autograph once when he did a USO tour in Saudi Arabia during the First Gulf War. He and Martin Short are coming to Little Rock, but I won’t be going sadly. Un, where was I? I kept adding things. Oh yeah, the post! Plethora. NOBODY knows what that means. I like to use it myself and I always get a laugh. Sometimes people just look at me crazy. Sometimes they say, “Oh yeah, a plethora.” I used it once when I was talking about a little bit of something. My friend immediately said, “oh yeah, a plethora!” I laughed at him and got to use another classic movie line,”That word….I don’t think it means what you think it means.” Be blessed, Julie
I love Steve Martin and I love words and I love my friends— a wonderful thanksgiving Wally
