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.

    Fondest rgards,

  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. Geoff - Grockles. I love it!

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

  6. Thanks Ken. It was a great weekend!
