Happy Thanksgiving to all from Metal Odyssey. Yes, I will eat whatever the heck I feel like eating today, plus the quantity of food I eat is my own personal business too. To all the people who watch what other people eat and tell others how and what to eat… go eat rice cakes today and stare at yourselves in the mirror, you artificial and pompous fools.
I am thankful for:
My incredible wife and beautiful twin daughters… and our new cat toby.
My courageous and strong father.
My Mother and Father In-Law
My sister and brother in-law and their two daughters. (And their dog too).
My Best Metal Buddy Scott and his fine family.
My sister is in Heaven and I am thankful for her son and daughter.
My mother is in Heaven too… I am thankful for all the love and memories.
My faith, God and all of the guardian angels who have worked overtime for me and my family.
For all my cousins, aunts and uncles who are the good ones. In other words, the ones who are not self absorbed in their own minds, non materialistic and know I still exist.
Good friends and helpful neighbors.
My country – The United States of America, The Land of the Free… I hope and pray it stays this way.
Armed Forces of The United States of America – these men and women in uniform protect us all every minute of every day.
Rock and Roll – especially Heavy Metal and all of it’s genres.
Motorhead, Misfits, W.A.S.P. and Slayer… my top four.
Lynyrd Skynyrd and their 2009 album – God & Guns
Cheap Trick and ELO
Anthony Bourdain and No Reservations
Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures
World Champion New York Yankees and the New York Giants
Planet Earth… the best and only planet we can all live on. If only we all could get along…
I’m very thankful for being introduced to this album by The Everly Brothers, (Don and Phil Everly), as a child. My mother had this album and it was my first introduction to the amazing world of Rock and Roll. This 1958 album was a true enjoyment and will forever be an unreal lifetime memory.
I’m extra thankful for being alive to be thankful for all of the above.
