Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

A Few J.C. Leyendecker's to celebrate the holiday...

I included this one because of the unfinished areas. I love seeing a work in progress from my favorite painters.

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a few traditions. Some people watch the parade, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, Football, and of course, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. I remember for a while, when I was a kid getting mad, really mad, at Charlie Brown for trying to kick the damn football every year, and never learning. I thought, it's insane, he falls for it every time. Bugs Bunny would never do that. I have been saying for years that part of getting through life is trying to be more like Bugs Bunny, and less like Charlie Brown. Just a few years ago I realized how true the football story really is. We all have a football we are trying to kick, and too often someone pulls it away from us. Although now I realize how important it is to never give up trying to kick that football, I still wonder if Charlie Brown ever has to fight the urge of kicking Lucy instead...and I think, What would Bugs Bunny do?

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Mr. Hobart! It's one thing to always try to kick the "football" life puts or pulls away from you, quite another to keep getting fooled by the same person. ; )

      Happy Thanksgiving to you too Mr. Pardo!
