Wishing all my Canadian friends a Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s shaping up to be a beautiful day here – perfect for one of those scenic fall rides. After the turkey is in the oven, of course.

Hope you have a great day wherever you are, and however you celebrate!

  1. Dear Canajun:

    Thanksgiving? Already?

    Do you guys celebrate the day the first Irish immigrants arrived, bringing the country a sense of humor?

    Just askin'.

    Have a great holiday with your family and friends.

  2. Jack - Thanks.

    There are a few theories about the celebration and that's one of them. Another is that it's the day the last tourist hitched up his team to the Winne-wagon and headed back home 'cause it's "too damned cold up here" and central heating had yet to be invented.

    But most likely it's because mid-October is the first time of the year one can be outside and not be eaten alive by mosquitoes/no-see-ums/black flies/deer flies/horse flies and other bloodsucking insects.

  3. Best wishes from New Zealand!

    Thanksgiving when the tourists leave is a great idea. Now that the weather is warming up, it's noticeable that those darned vans are starting to clog the roads down here.

    Rubbernecking tourists in the south-west of England are called "Grockles". A good word to use as an insult without them knowing...

  4. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday ... of course, here in the states, we will have to wait until next month. Enjoy!
