Manny P. here…

   With Thanksgiving around the corner, I wanted to wish my friends to this blog and family a safe and wonderful “Happy Holiday.” Frances_Brundage_Thanksgiving

   I allude to this fine tradition in my book Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History. It was the Pilgrims that landed at Plymouth Rock who celebrated their success in establishing a community in the New World with the Natives indigenous to the area. It was and is considered a harvest festival.

   Abraham Lincoln officially made Thanksgiving a US holiday during his first term as President. Thanksgiving_1900

   Remember that football and food make for a great way to spend the holiday, but that family is still the main reason we give thanks and praise for the lives we live the rest of the year.

   So, thank you to my wife Laurie; my dad Manny; my mom Gloria; my sister Virginia; my brothers-in-law Roland, Mark, Maxime, and Eric; my sister-in-law Heather; my nephew Matthew; and the rest of my extended family for being there for me. I am there for you.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
