Yes we will go out to my oldest sons house in Brighton, his younger brother will show up and we will eat a big Turkey then sit around and play guitar,drums and sax, I will play bass some and let my oldest guy play guitar. All the while the Detroit Lions will be on the tube in the background bumming us all out!

Ever since I was a child, it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without watching Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. :thu:

 

Also, before feasting, we would join hands and each of us would say what we are thankful to God for. It was "cute & innocent" when it was the children's turn- speaking of my nieces & nephews. The family is so large nowadays, it would literally take over an hour to carry on that tradition. But I will continue it with my own family. That said, I am thankful for all of my friendships here. We may not always agree with everything, but we all respect one another's differences and remain friends nonetheless. :)

 

It's just nice to be home this year. If you remember, I was deployed last year over the Holidays. For that I am thankful.

 

Happy Thanksgiving & God bless you & your families. May God watch over you & them in your travels.

Well Trucks, here's the deal. :D

 

You jump on a plane, and come on over here. Than, you get to sit with all of my relatives (in-laws....getting the picture here?), who undoubtedly will drive you CRAZY as well. Just when you think you are going to CHOKE SOMEBODY, they serve more food than you've ever seen before....at least since last Thanksgiving. You eat like a pigdog, until you feel physically ill. Then, you do some drinking, hoping that the intoxication will help you tolerate the remainder of the day without actually doing bodily harm to yourself or others.

 

Can you feel the love?? :eek:

Yeah, sort of like Americans with "Guy Fox Day"! :D

At least you don't do like I did. While in Japan I went to an English speaking church service. It was around Thanksgiving so without thinking I asked the Canadians I met what they usually ate for Thanksgiving. DUH :confused:

 

(I understand they have their own Thanksgiving, though.)

Whatever I have accrued in the last year materially I sell to the local pawn shop. Then I spend all of the money and go on a crack binge for like 3 days. I wake up in a stupor in a jail cell dressed up like a turkey--EVERYTIME.

 

Just kiddin, I do the normal thing. Go to my Mom's and eat turkey. She is a great cook so I am lucky. One time I ate at my friend's parents. His Mom couldn't cook at all. The turkey tasted like old fish or something. Anyways, I am thankful my Mom is an excellent cook and our turkeys are always juicy. The fixins are great.

 

I am sure Lee or anyone else in Detroit has entertained the idea that David Hall from Rock Financial might show up for dinner. I mean you really can't escape that guy in Detroit. He is EVERYWHERE!!! I swear you will hear a commercial with David Hall and switch the station and he is on the other one too. You turn on the TV there he is. David--STOP THE MADNESS but happy tgiving.

We have a fairly new annual Thanksgiving Tradition here....This is the second year in a row that I got lucky, and was able to provide one of these for our Thanksgiving table....

They are not easy to catch up with. So, I don't know how long I can keep this tradition going. We'll see!

LMAO...

 

I like hearing...."GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE.....BANG!!" :eek::D

 

Actually my two favorite animal sounds are an Elk's buggle, and a Gobbler's gobble!! Really cool, almost prehistoric sounding vocalizations.

My thanks giving tradition. Wake up - Shower - dress - Go to the relitives - Have a jam session - Tell thousands of dirty jokes someone my age REALLY shouldn't know - eat - PASS OUT - go home, And pass out all over again. ( And I love the elk, But I'll kill a deer over a turkey anyday. )
Never trouble trouble till' trouble troubles you.
