A Thanksgiving Prayer

I'm feeling particularly cynical tonight and with Thanksgiving just a week away, what better time to post a link to William S. Burroughs' "A Thanksgiving Prayer"?

Now that that's out of my system...

The last photo (taken about 2:30 this morning on 18th Street in Richmond, VA--don't ask) reminds me of the interestingly-translated instructions on a can of Honda motorcycle touch-up paint I saw way back in the early 70s: "Be stirred, be thinned with lacquer." Sound advice for young and old.

What is that muffler dog doing to that muffler parent's leg?????

Be really refreshed!

Muffling away, apparently!

Be stirred, be thinned with lacquer!
