Like so many of us, I am traveling home to be with my family for Thanksgiving.I am traveling smoke free and thankful for so much in my life.
I was thinking about the lyrics to this song, Little Pink Houses, and how Mellencamp was talking about so many of us.Also, thinking about the mess this country is in and the hope that the recent election has brought.
America isn’t perfect, but for everywhere I've been, for all I've got . . . for all I've ever wanted . . . I've still got my "little pink house", and someone who loves me.It may suck at times - but aw, then ain’t we got it so good? Now, ain’t that America?
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

You know I never went ANYWHERE until I was in my 30's. Now I have been to so many of those places. I am truly thankful that I have had the change to enjoy so much of this country. And there is still soooo much to see. Thanks for posting this. I really enjoyed it. coach
Everyone says you have to quit for yourself but you don't have to quit by yourself.
