Happy Thanksgiving!

As I close in on the first anniversary of Crossroads, I want to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.  This year I will be the token gringo at a Mexican Thanksgiving feast I like to call Occupy the Ortegas, although I will not be alone for long.  No word yet on whether Sheriff Joe Arpaio will join us.  Then it’s on to Black Friday, which commemorates the nighttime seizure of Lookout Mountain some 148 years ago by Union soldiers seeking doorbuster deals.  Rumor is that news that new items had arrived the next morning inspired George Thomas’s men to swarm over Missionary Ridge in an unstoppable wave in search of bargains.
