Oh my dear Toads what a week it has been. I am sitting in my RV in Campland in San Diego on Mission Bay right now thinking about what I should post for my Friday. Should it be Thanksgiving...no, someone else probably has that covered. Should I post a prompt about San Diego? Nahhhh....not everyone has been there. Then I thought....Herotomost, you are a damn fool (I finally see what you all have seen since I've been here). You just gave your daughter away on Monday and were a wreck beyond wrecks for the entire day before and for the entire event. Toads let me tell you, and many of you probably know already, I had no idea how I should be feeling about the auspicious event. I mean, the 18 months of planning by my daughter was insufferable. The price tag hard for a man of my meager means to support. But onward and upward and soon enough it was time for the wedding. Up until that point it seemed like something happening to someone else. Then all of the sudden, it was upon me and I had know idea how to feel about it. I was numb, I was sad, I was happy for her, for me, for her groom David. I was bitchy, I was emotional and I was all around a bit of a mess. I was a mess until she said I do, until I gave the speech, until we had father-daughter dance. At that point I was just grateful that she was happy, and that the wedding was everything she had hoped.

I want to wish each and everyone of you the Happiest of Thanksgivings. Eat, drink and be merry, and if this prompt is not in the cards on this holiday weekend then so be it, just have fun whatever you do.
