Been trying to do the math, but I think it is the 8th Thanksgiving together for many of us - wow.
I'm proud to be somehow in your homes with the forum and with the friends you've made here. On the one day of the year families in the US spend together the most out of any other holiday, I'm so glad that many of you even take a minute on this special day to stop in to the forums to check out what's happening - sure has family and friends written all over it.
Enjoy your time with family, feast and be merry and although it is unlikely they are reading this, I give thanks to the men and women around the Globe who dive so much to keep us safer in a crazy world. God Bless everyone and just think by this time tomorrow, your neighbors will have blowup snow-globes, reindeer and lights strung all over their house and yard. For some reason, every holiday seems to start the days AFTER the previous one ends.
Tracey and I are having a Christmas Tree for the first time in many many years. I miss the days when blinking lights reflected off the walls and the cats sniffed at smells we can only imagine. It won't be until early December though, even though it is a nice artificial tree, I see no need to go from Black Friday to January 1st - someone else can do that :)
Again, thank you all for being part of the Beemaster Family. Since I have no living relatives, I think of you all as family and maybe that's why I get a little protective when we get ying-yangs in here? But I'll swear to it and pass any polygraph if asked if I think our forum is the friendliest one around - because in my heart, I believe that you all get that we aim the bar a little higher than most and the results speak for themselves.
To many more years together, Happy Thanksgiving to you all
