Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Screen Shot 2013-11-27 at 4.04.44 PMThanksgiving is upon us again, and while I’ve been doing a better and better job practicing gratitude on a daily basis… And even though I don’t tend to go back home and surround myself with family… Thanksgiving still remains my favorite of all holidays, even though corporate America and super-sale seekers continue to infringe upon it with what used to be known as a single day, “Black Friday.”


Thank you. Thank you to all that have hired me. Thank you for all the casting offices that have brought me in. Thank you for the ONE MILLION plus views on YouTube. Thank you for the nearly 50,000 views on this blog… Thank you for all the likes on Facebook. On all the pages. Thank you for telling your friends. For yelling… “I know that guy!” when you’ve spotted me on TV.  Thank you for all your support. For all your help. For all your forwards. For all your referrals. For all of you that have introduced me to people. That have encouraged me. That have challenged me. Thank you to those that have spurred me on, insulted, turned me down, or even backhandedly slapped me with supposed compliments… Thank you for your motivation. Thank you to those that have taught me. Loved me. Liked me. Left me. Laughed with me. Thank you to those who have read my books. Heard me sing. Thank you to those who have come to live shows. Listened to Crazy Uncle Tommy stories. Thank you to those that have worked along side me. Those who showed up. Invited me. Those who believe in me. Who inspire me. Those who have told me I’ve inspired or taught them… Those who have written. Those who check in. Those who wished me a happy birthday. Who have subscribed to this blog. Thank you to all of you who appreciate life… Thank you to those who sparkle and make the world a better place. Thank you to all of you that breathe before honking… To those who lend helping hands when one is needed… To those that volunteer… Thank you for your hard work. Your humor. Sharing your talents. That smile of yours. The warm hello you once gave me. Thank you for looking out for others. For your selflessness. For that much needed hug. For the welcome. To those of you who have rescued dogs and cats. Yes… For all the good in the world I know and the world I have yet to meet… Thank you.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

And to those of you, like me, who want to keep Thanksgiving simply Thanksgiving, and not a day of shopping for sales with crazy lines and frenzied ridiculousness… Stay at home. Stay at your friends’ home. Have an extra slice of pie… A song at a piano… Or a game of cards… Keep it a day about friends, family, food and simply giving thanks.

  1. Even though it’s just Marcus and I at home most of the time now, we still yell “Tommy!!” when we see you on tv. We love the Navy Federal Credit Union commercial. We’ve been members for almost 30 years. They treat us well. I hope they paid well. Continue doing what you do best; being you. I just can’t believe Hollywood hasn’t seen you and said “Why didn’t we find this guy sooner. Sign him up!” Many blessings to you. Much love and admiration.
