There is so much that I could write about today. Charles Manson, serial killer, cult leader of the mostly all female Helter Skelter Family, musician and psychopath died on November 19, 2017. President Robert Mugabe of the nation of Zimbabwe resigned following a military overthrow and forcefully replaced by Emmerson Mnangagwa. However, according to Wikipedia, Robert Mugabe is still in control over Zimbabwe. And even if there was a successful military revolt in Zimbabwe, it's doubtful that the overall government of Zimbabwe changed since the office of President of that nation is chosen instead of being elected. Oh yeah, Thanksgiving Day is this coming Thursday. I can't wait for Thanksgiving Day to arrive y'all.

It appears as if I misread the calendar. I thought that Thanksgiving Day was on November 27, 2017. It turns out that Thanksgiving Day was actually on November 23, 2017. Which means that Thanksgiving Day was several days earlier than I expected. Which means that if I start preparing a Thanksgiving Day meal on November 27, then I would be several days later than everybody else. So with knowledge of the actual day of Thanksgiving Day, I'm able to plan and schedule the days events properly. Hey, it's good that I find out about the actual day of Thanksgiving now instead of finding out about the actual day of Thanksgiving several days beyond the actual holiday. Now I can begin with the preparation for Thanksgiving Day.

It's hard to believe how close to Thanksgiving Day we all are. Thanksgiving Day is on November 27, 2017 and it's November 18, 2017. That's only nine days away (Not including today). It's going to be fun to see what happens when Thanksgiving Day actually does arrive. Thanksgiving Day has always been a good day for feasting. Though the lessons of the Caucasian-European Settlers living in harmony with Native American Indians was lost in all these nineteenth century Indian Wars, stolen land and broken treaties, we still celebrate Thanksgiving Day anyway regardless. And just think, Christmas 2017 is just around the corner.

Today is the continuation of Autumn as we move closer towards Thanksgiving Day. It's cold and raining outside. I only stepped outside to walk the pet dogs Elaina Baina and Calliope. And after lunch consisting of hot dogs with barbecue sauce (I'm not a fan of ketchup and mustard) and a tall glass of milk. And after lunch, I'm surfing the Internet. It's still raining outside and I could see raindrops on the bedroom window. With this much rain clouds above me, it's necessary to have the lights on despite it being both daytime in general and afternoon in particular. Normally, if it's a clear blue sunny day the need to have the interior lights on wouldn't be necessary. Still, it's nice to see it rain. There are cities in California who are praying for this type of rain (Minus the mudslides naturally).

I guess I'll try out the new version of the Internet blog post editor.  Though I do prefer the old version of the Internet blog post editior.  I'm glad that the old version of the Internet blog post editor is still available.  It's been a long day and I'm tired.  Today is done and tomorrow is only minutes away.  Almost nearly done is the year 2017.  Thanksgiving Day seems so far away, But I said the same thing about Halloween 2017 and it arrived sooner than I expected.  Anyway, Thanksigivng Day 2017 should be fun.  Bring on the curkey, the cornbread stuffing, the cranberry sauce and the rest of the Thanksgiving Day trimmings.

Today is Veterans Day (Which is also called Armistice Day). Memorial Day started around the United States Civil War and pays tribute to United States Armed Forces Soldiers who died in the service of their country. Veterans Day was started around World War I and pays tribute to everybody who served in the United States Armed Forces. There's also the Fourth of July which is both the birthday of the United States which also pays tribute to those who served in the United States Armed Forces which began with the United States War of Independence in 1776. And there's Patriots Day which pays tribute to those who died in the World Trade Center destruction on September 11, 2001. Anyway, today is Veterans Day and I was busing tables at Bob Evans Restaurant before washing dishes later. And now with the day ending and a new day beginning, I'm writing about it all on my Internet blog.

There is a clear blue sky above me in the Suburbs of Columbus, Ohio. It's freezing cold outside as if to prepare for Winter. But it's not the type of Winter as seen on the television show Game of Thrones which lasts for decades and filled with scary ice zombies and even scarier ice zombie dragons, but it's the type which only lasts for three months maximum. I've given up trying to predict what happens next on Game of Thrones. Anyway, it's Autumn and it's starting to feel more like Winter. I miss the grassy field which used to exist behind the house. Don't get me wrong, it's nice that those folks living in the road extensions behind the house have homes to live in. But I miss the grassy field and the small hill that once lay upon the grassy field. Alas, some things is out of my hands and the only thing I can do is to bear witness to it happening. So it's time to bundle up before venturing outside because it's only going to get colder. Coming soon: Thanksgiving.

I'm exhausted, tired and I'm freezing cold. It's not yet eleven o'clock. It's getting closer to midnight. It's a good time as any to get some rest. I need some sleep badly and I'll be getting some after I type out a few more sentences. With Winter coming, the outside temperature will be getting colder. And it's colder when it's dark outside while it's warmer wen it's light outside. And with the clock moving closer towards 11:00 P.M., the freezing cold can be felt. It's easier to appreciate Summer after going through Winter. And Winter can be challenging, but it's a challenge that I can handle. Perhaps I should listen to some music first. However, I'm so tired that I might end up sleeping through it. Perhaps it's better to wait until I'm better rested before listening to music. After all, I got plenty of time at my disposal.

So daylight savings time is on Sunday. I thought daylight savings time was on Saturday. It's true that I never understood daylight savings time. Yeah, I know it made sense when the United States was a mostly agriculture based economy and there's still some elements of agriculture going on. However, corporate factories and warehouses seem to occupy the business sector for the United States. In some places, warehouses are built with no way to provide proper transportation for the type of folks needed to occupy the payroll for such warehouses. But that's another blog entry issue for another day. I know that It's pointless to crusade against daylight savings time and daylight savings time is mostly harmless (Provided that you're able to get plenty of sleep before, during and after). At any rate, daylight savings time will soon be here so I better get ready for it.

Today is the third and final day of Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead). Dia de Muertos is the Mexican version of Halloween. It's less about dressing up like Evil Spirits to avoid being captured by them and more about helping deceased Friends and Family reach the afterlife. And on the third and final day of Dia de Muertos, I celebrated by mowing the lawn. Mowing the lawn really isn't keeping in the spirit of Dia de Muertos, but I couldn't avoid mowing the lawn any further. I normally try to avoid mowing wet grass, but I really didn't have any better time before the grass grows so long as to make mowing difficult. And the wet grass really wasn't that hard to mow. Besides, I can always properly celebrate the third and final day of Dia de Muertos after I mowed the lawn.
