Happy Thanksgiving!!...

According to official reports, there could be as many as 38 million people living below the poverty level in the United States of America alone! According to the official report, I am one of them! Bummer!

It's not too bad, though, I guess. The average African family sometimes has a car and a milk goat or two and maybe a couple of cows and a few chickens and a dog. And that's the average income folks. The below the poverty line Africans have even less.
All Donna and I have are a 1360 square foot mobile home with central heat and air conditioning, a car, a pickup, four TV's, three computers, a stereo, refrigerator, gas range with oven, two inside toilets, two guitars, two amplifiers, a PA set that has a power head and two 12 inch speakers, microphones, recorder console, two pantries filled with canned goods and other kinds of food, three telephones, social security and Medicare and...we are below the income poverty level.
Thank You, God, for allowing us the blessing of being a below the poverty level American instead of an average income African!

Here is a picture of some African women who are coming back from the store with beer for their husbands who are getting ready to listen to the football game on a crystal radio they built from plans they got from a grandfather who fought in WWII.

Thank God for all our blessings and, to all of our family and friends, "Have a Happy Thanksgiving!"

Amen to that, CA! We are very blessed indeed. Troll and I have lived at poverty level in America for years and we have everything that we need and more.

Don't forget the running hot and cold water!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
