    Default Thanksgiving!!!!

    I hope all you KLOWNS have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
    This KLOWN will!!!

    My favorite holiday.
    I remember growing up, going to my Grmapa's farm and getting him, his 3 sons (my Uncles) my cousin and my Dad all hunting quail together.
    We used English Setters.
    That is where my love for the dogs and birds was born.

    Then my Grand Ma making the most spectacular dinners using a harvested wild turkey or two with all pies, cakes, bread etc being made on that farm from stuff they grew.
    Traditionally we would go racoon hunting the next night.
    Gramps also had coon hounds (blue ticks and black and tans).

    Life was pretty terrific then for a youngster in awe of all that.

    They are all gone now, I am the Grampa of the family.

    I will do my best to uphold the mystique and traditions those who held the position before me brought to the day.

    I hope each of you have much to be thankful for as I do!!

    And be grateful for what you have, worry not for what you don't have!!

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!

    I'll enjoy it. Not the grandpa yet, but those days seem to be approaching faster than I'd like. Hope I'm worthy.

    The worst part of Thanksgiving for this guy who was born and raised in Detroit is watching my beloved and sad sack Lions get hammered by the Patriots.

    Happy Thanksgiving RK! I miss mine too, and it is hunting season when I remember them the most.

    My dad died when I was 27. He and I were as close as you can get. He was an avid deer hunter and back then they didn't have all the things they do now to hide scent, so he would put a little skunk scent on a Q-tip and stick in his hat as he walk to his deer stand. That smell was always around during hunting season, so now some 20+ years later, when I smell a skunk I think happy thoughts of my dad.

    And Texas A&M will be in Austin beating the Hell out of tu!

    Maybe they'll surprise you and stay within a few touchdowns. Happy Thanksgiving All. Enjoy the time with your families. I know I will.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all, may you be with those you love and are loved by, if only in your hearts when separated by the miles.
    The following was sent to me by a good dog friend of mine

    May your stuffing be tasty
    May your turkey plump,
    May your potatoes and gravy
    Have never a lump.
    May your yams be delicious
    And your pies take the prize,
    And may your Thanksgiving dinner
    Stay off your thighs!
