Happy Thanksgiving to all.

My Thanksgiving has gotten much easier in the last few years.  All my blood family is 5000 miles away in Hawaii.  Kelly's sister always hosts Thanksgiving and Christmas at the River house.  My BIL has the frying of turkeys down to a T.  We make a casserole or two and show up.  I take water toys and play the eccentric uncle (actually just play myself).  A day or two with a sober, Christian, nice family.  That's what I'm thankful for.  I engage my teacher brain (no cussing, dark cynicism, or dirty innuendos) and watch a Norman Rockwell holiday happen.

I am blessed.

Mine, too. :thumbsup:    One thing I have to bear in mind at our extended family's Thanksgiving gathering is to avoid political discussions of ANY kind! :rolleyes:

Well that's a little touching.  Really.  I brought fellow sailors home for holidays sometimes.  They were always thankful (despite my non functional nuclear nuthouse family.) and it eased some's homesickness and other's loneliness.  Good on your buddy!

You too Nuke.

We are loners on holidays these days.  All my family (except our son) is either dead, missing, or alienated and my wife's side of the tree is pretty much the same.  She has three siblings left and hasn't talked to two of them for several years and the one who did call her about a year ago was just complaining how their mother treated them when they were growing up.  She is writing a journal so she can cope with the trauma.  One of her other sisters called her and during the conversation got another call and said "I have to take this one.  I will call you back."  That was seven years ago and she is still waiting for the call back.

We are having turkey and the rest of the stuff and then I am going out to lay on the concrete pad in the corral to fix the stock water tank in time to have it freeze and break in the coming blizzard.  Life is good. 

This sounds like someone I don't know wrote it.

You did good Michael, kept your mouth shut and a woman happy.  A tough skill to learn but it pays dividends.
