Last year a reader suggested a what are we thankful for post and I liked the idea. I’m thankful for a wonderful family, friends and our online community that has become PoPville. You can drive me nuts from time to time but I genuinely like, respect and appreciate (most of) you more than ever.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the Police Departments, Fire Department, other emergency responders and all those who are working over this Thanksgiving holiday.
To MPD in particular, I often post horrific crimes (and banal ones too) but rarely post about your accomplishments. Just this evening I read a report of a robbery that was thwarted as a result of MPD officers and 2 handguns were recovered in the first police district (700 block of 11th Street SE). Your successes are not unnoticed and I want to thank you for your service. While I and others don’t often say it, I appreciate your efforts in making our neighborhoods a safer place to live.
For those traveling – wishing you and yours a safe and speedy journey.
If anyone cooks a particularly good looking Turkey or has a good thanksgiving scene be sure to upload to the PoPville flickr pool or send in an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com.
So, what are you thankful for this year?
