Marsha Blackburn Report: Giving Thanks

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – In November 1621, after the pilgrims’ first successful corn harvest, a celebratory meal was held in Plymouth, Massachusetts. It wasn’t for over two hundred years that the meal now known as Thanksgiving was held on a consistent date across the nation.

Just days after delivering the Gettysburg address in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving to be the final Thursday of November. In 2019, it is customary to reflect on the many things we are grateful for.

Dodging the Roadkill: Losing My Mojo

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I had my accident last year, it took me several weeks to recover from my leg injury, and it took several more weeks after that to get back on my motorcycle. 

For the first couple of weeks I was back in the “saddle” I was tentative and apprehensive.  I was a different biker for a while, until I could get my “mojo” back.

If we’re honest,  I would venture a guess that this has happened to all of you at one time or another.  Maybe when you dropped your bike, or you had an accident, or maybe you had a “close call” and you lived to tell the tale.  Whatever it was, it’s not a real good feeling and you start second guessing yourself.

Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts’ Thanksgiving Day Message

 

City of Clarksville

Clarksville, TN – Thanksgiving is a time to reflect, a time to be grateful for all that we have been given. My favorite Thanksgiving Day memories growing up involve doing yard work and raking leaves with my dad. I’m sure this was designed to get us outside and out of my mother’s hair while she prepared dinner.  We then pivoted to kitchen cleanup duty after the meal.
