Gratitude, sadly, was a learned emotion for me. But through some long hard years I came to know that I have more to be thankful for than any man deserves. Today is Thanksgiving, and I am far from home, and I've never missed my wife and my friends and my family and my kitties more than I do right now. I love you all. Thank you for being there for me, even when I am not there for you.
And now it's time for me to go play some rock and roll!
