Happy Thanksgiving!

I want to wish the best to all my Oregon, Washington, and Idaho friends. (actually there might be a couple Californians also) Today is the day we give thanks for all the blessings we have. I'm hosting 11 today and am looking forward to seeing them all. God bless you all, and have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Nice! I love the clean look of new fallen snow.
And the opportunity to snuggle inside a warm and friendly homestead.

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all !

Not trying to be an asshole, but man snow gives me anxiety attacks these days. It got up to 60 today and feels like winter wearing long sleeves and a coat.

That scene conjures up a Warren Beatty movie and his crack head girlfriend

That's a bummer man! I love the snow! Peaceful and quiet...

I'm really interested as to what movie you're referring to though...

Oh I agree on the tranquility of a snowfall. But man just hate being around cold weather as I get older. Plus I wouldn't know what to do up there if the power went off. Here I can throw on a few more blankets and put a fire in the stove just in case. AC goes out though during the summer, it won't kill me

As far as the movie, let's see if TBD gets the reference. It's not too bad.

I've been on a jobsite this week that didn't have any power to our job shack...temps averaged around 30 degrees...but the rain and wind chill made it pretty phugging unpleasant. So I can feel what your talking about..

Happy belated Thanksgiving to all!
Cooked up a ham and trimmings. Was yummy. Spent the day all by myself which rarely happens. Was nice to have a full day to myself.

Happy Thanksgiving, guys! We had a great one, and saw some family we didn't expect. It was great.

Natalie stayed in Utah and ate with my brother Paul and his family. Evelyn is in Mexico and has parasites "new roommates". Ha. She's a brave kid. Docs in Mexico "diagnosed" GI parasites via a stethoscope held up to her belly. Yes. They did.

So we're hoping she'll be fine. They did give meds, so whatever that means. April has already sent different meds + probiotics. We are thankful for the courier service, among other things.

I'm grateful we all enjoy living in this free land of bounty and opportunity.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving, Everyone!

I worked on the holiday, as I do almost all holidays.

Brunop, I hope your daughter has a quick and full recovery.
