Default Happy Thanksgiving

Even in a world of deadly terrorists, corrupt governments and leaders, I think we still have much to be thankful for on this day for giving thanks. I bet no one on this forum will go hungry today unless they want to.

Tucking into a grand angus at Maccas almost home on my night ride, detoured through Byron bay to avoid roadworks and liven up the freeway trip.

Thanksgiving is an interesting time....we stop for a day to give thanks for what we have and bust out early the next day to buy more. I'm doing more of the former and none of the latter. How about you?

Christmas, as far as gift buying goes, is pretty much a non issue for me. No kids. I treat it as another day these days. I'm actually glad when the holidays are over with and the bombardment of sales and ads subside except for the after holiday sales of course.

I have be toying with the idea of getting a PS4 or XBox and trying my hand at gaming to while away some time occasionally. I just don't know if I would find it entertaining or challenging enough to hold my interest.

If it were me, I'd be looking at things I could volunteer for. We have a country full of kids that don't know how to use tools and can not fix things cuz their dads (who should have taught them) were too busy playing video games. There's got to be venues where a guy like you can go to show kids which end of the screwdriver is the handle and how it works.

Volunteering ones time is an excellent way to spend time. If I were to volunteer for anything; it would be at a no-kill pet shelter.

I agree kids are not learning much from their dad's sometimes. I certainly didn't and that was long before video games. Sometimes I actually wonder if my dad is my dad because we are so different. Here in Kingman I think both parents are much more involved in their kids lives than what the norm in the cities is. I doubt there is much I could teach the local kids. Heck; they could probably teach me about a few things, including horses. I couldn't fill a thimble with what I know about horses but I still think they are magnificent and beautiful animals.

I'm going skiing on black friday.....no stores for me - yuck! Now if Vic parts were on 30% off for the day I may spend some time looking
But other than that our kids get new PJs, slippers and some other comfy stuff and a check for a few hundred. They are 21 and 24 and money for bills etc is what they need/want now and it is way easier than trying to find stuff they would use!

Love Thanksgiving but Christmas has become so much about consuming with sales, sales and more sales bombardment.

I'm not religious, but if that guy who Christmas is all about should return, as some think he might, he is going to be mighty pissed off at what his birthday has been turned into.

What a fantabulous Thanksgiving! All family members are doing well. I had my 83 yr old dad with us. We pigged out and watched tv. Wife and I bought ourselves an early Christmas present. A 55 inch 4k smart curved Samsung. Watched ole miss whip miss state tonight.

I'm sitting outside now with Sam the schnauzer listening to trans Siberian Christmas music eating peanuts and drinking blue moon. Fire is purty!ImageUploadedByMO Free1448771502.744655.jpg
