Pic Of The Day #1681

Bill Ryan took this photo the other day from Compo Beach, looking across at Saugatuck Harbor. He was intrigued by the dramatic cloud.

But when he looked closer, he thought: It’s not a cloud at all. It’s a huge turkey, hightailing it out of town until Thanksgiving is over.

Happy Turkey Day to all!

Thanks A Lot!

The “Comments” page of “06880″ has been filled with wild stuff the past year.  Crazy drivers, crazy weather, crazy crap going down at The Farm  — if I’ve written about it, you’ve commented on it.

Today, let’s play nice.

We’ll devote this post’s “Comments” to a simple topic:  whatever we have to be thankful for.

I’ll start it off.  I’m thankful that I live in such a beautiful, creative, compassionate, involved and supportive town.

I’m thankful for the thousands of readers who make “06880″ such an interesting labor of love.

And I’m thankful that despite all the craziness that sometimes threatens to drown us, we somehow manage to keep our heads above water, shake ourselves dry, and find our way back to firm, familiar land.

Oh, yeah.  I’m also thankful for electricity.  It’s on, most of the time.

Now it’s your turn.  What are you thankful for?  Just click the “Comments” link.

Thank you!
