Happy Thanksgiving

I remember the first year The Cosby Show premiered.  It was 1984, and America got a glimpse of a modern black family.  I loved the Huxtable’s, and like many of you, I often reflect fondly on my favorite episodes.  I love the Gordon Gartrell shirt fiasco.  Of course the anniversary shows, where the Huxtable clan performed for the grandparents, are favorites of mine.  I still laugh when I watch Clair go off on Vanessa for sneaking off to see The Wretched, and Theo singing “Justine Justine” is priceless.  I could go on and on, but I will leave you all with this…..

The first time we saw the Huxtable’s celebrate Thanksgiving was on November 22, 1984.  On that day my family “bit” off of our favorite sitcom family and decided to go around the table to say one thing that we were thankful for.  Ever since then, whenever we were all together for Thanksgiving we would continue in that tradition.  Many of you won’t read this blog until after you’ve had your fill of turkey and all the trimmings.  I’m sure you will have memories of Thanksgiving 2007, but if you haven’t already stop and take an extra moment to say one thing that you are thankful for in 2007!
