To the editor,


I am thankful for: Goldfish, whereI can extract gold


A heap of Halloween candy


Trains that stay on track


Cartoons that I understand


That I know more than just one and two-letter words when playing Scrabble


The movie, “Mama Mia,” about a missing father


That in Algebra, you can make “knowns” from “unknowns”


That “pew” doesn’t mean “smells bad” in church


Freebies, even if you don’t even need them


Short lines


That “Gone with the Wind” stayed around


Strong kite strings


Rabbits that are “hare today and hare tomorrow”


That Cheerwine is not alcoholic


That the Grand Canyon is not just a final place for grand pianos


That Washington, D.C. was not named Georgeville


That you can play Chinese checkers only knowing English


That Lake Erie is not really spooky


That it doesn’t bother the French to call it the English Channel


Happy Thanksgiving,


George Wollin
