A musical Happy Thanksgiving to our WYMA readers

We are thankful to all of you for indulging our little hobby here.
For our international readers, today is Thanksgiving Day in the US, a family oriented holiday where we cook all day, gather in large groups to eat bland American food, watch football and a big parade in New York City on TV, and are thankful for the many good people and blessings in our lives.
In my house, we also listen to American music.

Some songs of various givings of thanks from some WYMA artists.

We are thankful for vintage Cadillacs too:

And, saving the best for last, we give thanks for the existence of a higher power, Mr. Bob Dylan:
