The HELL with thanks giving, it's only for people who have, because I don't. Death is the only thing coming for me anyways.

Thank you - I couldn't figure out where it was from just reading the article either.
:(

Sounds like it was a great event. The warmth and generosity of people in this area is tremendous!

The food was delicious, the volunteers many, and the feeling afterward was peaceable and sociable. I especially enjoyed the white, cloth table cloths. Surprisingly elegant. And the pies were fabulous!

On the downside, there was no salt or pepper, butter for the dinner rolls, or COFFEE!!

Thanks to Steven Pleich, Friends of Thanksgiving, and Pastor Dennis Adams for their hard work in organizing this annual Thanksgiving dinner.

its just a plain fact that for many unfortunate souls this particular meal and event is a very very much appreciated deal.

its also a plain fact to other less deserving freeloaders this is just another handout.

I prefer to focus on the former :):):):):)

So BJ.... you couldn't just say thank you and leave it at that? You attend and partake in a free dinner and then have the brass to comment on Topix about lack of salt, pepper, etc. You're uncouth, ill-mannered, rude, discourteous, and ungracious.

No thanks to Larry Pearson and Pacific Cookie Co.? What's up with that, BECKY? Why are you being selective with your praise?

Or any of the 300+ volunteers and people who donated items to the event. Yet another example of BJ being ungracious and impolite.

No butter, or coffee! I'll bet she didn't leave a tip to show her displeasure.

That goes without saying. But let he who does not step on glass scales throw the first pie. Or something like that.
