I was pointed to this by Court. A great thing to play for the family on "Dead Turkey Day".

Follow the link and click on the long play of the song,

I'm thankful to not be a turkey today. Thanks for the memories today Court.

My cousin's favorite song. RIP.

Thanks!

Blasting it in the office right now. (to odd stares)

Happy Thanksgiving! What you thankful for?

I'm sitting in my own home with a good motorcycle in the garage. I have family members who love me and who I love. I have some amazing friends. I've done a lot of traveling in the past couple of years and I'm hoping and planning bigger and more challenging adventures for the not too distant future. I have a truly wonderful life and I realize and appreciate it.

I'll also play Alice's Restaurant on Thursday morning, like I do most years.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

PS, did you know that it is doubtful that the pilgrims had turkey as one of the meats on the original Thanksgiving?

I'm thankful for my neighborhood . . . for my neighbors (you know my next door neighbor) and for all the music in my life . . . real, spiritual and emotional.

This time of year I see the homeless people and realize that there but for the grace of god go I.
I have so much to be grateful for and sometimes I think it's just dumb luck that I'm still around, ha, ha.

This is the day that our Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.

I've had sisters, half sisters, step sisters, foster sisters, Step brothers, half brothers, and foster brothers. From stay at home mom's home schooling my nieces and nephews while raising and growing their own food to highly successful executives to homeless people. Some have died, but most are still alive. The one that makes me think the most is the one I was closest to. We even shared a house after I got out of the Air Force. We met when I was 3 or 4 and he was 4 or 5. He has been an addict since I was 8 or 9. He is 58 now. I looked up to him till I was in my 30s. He lives in a trailer in the woods. The floor is soft and he uses an electric heater. I don't think it has hot water. The porch steps are broke and the door doesn't latch. He does odd jobs like cleaning gutters for money. The trailer owner hasn't charged him rent in a long time. He checks on him often. I visited a couple of weeks ago and took him some vodka. $8 for 4 half pints. That freed up enough of his money from gutter cleaning to put minutes on his burner phone. He drinks the cheapest stuff. I didn't take him to the bar, but I never did. I know I can't help him till he helps himself. The part of him that is left is the George Carlin impersonator only more insane. His older brother died homeless. His Mom died of cancer when he was a teen. His father passed away never really having a relationship with him. His surviving sister doesn't even know where he is and doesn't care. I searched for ten + years to find him in the woods where he has been living for 15 years. He was never on the web. He tells me he wants to be institutionalized. I send him a letter with a self addressed stamped envelope in it and a blank piece of paper so he can contact me. There is a mailbox on the gravel road in the woods. I think, there but for the grace of God go I. I ache for him.

RD, firstly, thanks for starting this thread. You've made me begin the day thinking of the right things.

I've got my sweet woman, who's somehow tolerated my idiocy for over 15 years now. A house, yard, shed with my junk and my beloved old Beemer. Two great, weird, silly dogs that we love to spoil. And although I never see my dear Sister or my step-dad more than a couple of times a year, I love them no less. All my BW buddies, and a good handful of "brothers from other mothers" nearby.

Got a job that gets me by, with a whole crew of great co-workers. Managers and chefs that are great... only my GM can be a bit of a loose cannon. Love the guy anyhoo.

Here lately I've been kinda obsessing about the things I need to do, loose ends, finances, honeydos/gottados, how in heck I'll get ahead next year. Gotta work a double tomorrow, that'll whoop me real good. (Management understands to give me the next day off after a day like that, thank God.) Despite all the worries and funk in my head, I need to focus clearly on the good, and the good people I can claim.

To all of my good friends here, thanks. Thanks be to God and his/her grace in my life, and all of your lives as well.
Have a great tomorrow, and a great/safe holiday season, all.

I am thankful I am still above grade, after a heart attack last month.

Damn, Chris; sorry to hear that. Hope you're doing OK. Go to cardiac rehab and do what they tell you- religiously.

I'm thankful that I'm still doing well 16 years after my own heart episode (no attack, but close, and a big scar on my chest to show for it). I'm thankful I was able to retire at a fairly early age (I'm coming up on one year of retirement) and that I was able to fix up the home I grew up in and move back into it and enjoy what's still a pleasant tiny town. I'm thankful I was able to buy an EBR this year while they're still available. I'm thankful for my wife, son, daughter, and 2 granddaughters (#3 on the way), and 3 dogs.

Life is pretty good.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! I had a stress echo test last week and they said I have no blockage which is good to hear. I do have a mild to medium leaky heart valve but it's not bad enough to do anything. The symptoms for this explain a lot of what I feel like sometimes so I'm thankful I finally know what's causing my issues and know it's ok and something I can live with. I'm also thankful for this forum full of lunatics! It's a helpful and entertaining group of great folks!

A little sappy, but here goes:

I am thankful for...

The love of my life who proposed to me on our first date (now married 28 years). Love at first sight truly does exist.

My adoptive parents, who took me in when I was 14. I would probably be rotting in a jail cell if not for their compassion.

My in-laws who have treated me better than any of my birth family ever have.

My Friends. I have very few, close friends who make me smile every time I see them, even in bad times.

Those folks in the NAVY that drove me hard and helped me find the best of my soul.

Those are the top items.

I;m thankful for a Colorado Thanksgiving at 71 degrees.
I'll be riding the Uly and the Westwind.
Might even roll the RS Carbon out.

I am truly thankful for a wife that said yes 23 years ago. For the friends I've been blessed with along the way. Even the crazy one in Cincinnati that has me thinking about putting together a tourer and riding to Alaska in a couple of years. Thankful for the family that will share a meal with us tomorrow.

I'm thankful that I awoke from this turkey coma. For awhile there it could have gone either way.

I'm thankful for still getting invited to motorcycle thanksgivings. I've never seen a more genuinely jovial and perpetually interesting group of people.

While I am saddened to have to put the old man on cigarette welfare, I am very thankful to have another holiday season with the old man.
