Since this is Thanksgiving month, my daughter-in-law and grandchildren decided to post something every day for which they are thankful. A couple of days ago my grandson, Hudson, was thankful for "trash bags."  Kerstin asked him why and he said, "If we didn't have trash bags the trash would go in the corner and stink."
