Happy Thanksgiving to the Forum!!!

Just wanted to wish everyone a very happy and safe Thanksgiving..........

Of course, to you folks who are ER'd, I suppose EVERY DAY is like Thanksgiving............

Happy T Day to the forum.


Unfortunately, some numb-nuts rear-ended my wife this morning as she drove the van with two kids and two dogs to come get me at the office, so I will be here for a while and probably get stuck in unbelievable traffic. Everyone seems to be OK (as you would expect with a modest hit in a 4500 pound minivan), so it s just likely to amount to a lot of insurance company PITA.

Thanks, OH.

Its funny: 10 years ago this would have been a financial calamity. Now all I care about is that everyone was OK because I could afford to write off the entire car without a second thought.

May this be the best Thanksgiving ever to all on this Forum.

I think I'll have some of that "Wild" Turkey tomorrow.

By the way, it's only going to be in the lower 70's here tomorrow. Can you believe such a frigid temperature?

Sorry to hear it happened, Brewer, but it must be a relief that everyone's OK. I guess there really are a lot of turkeys around this time of year!

Same here. You're talking about the low temperature, right?

Same here to all and especially to Brewer for his good investment ideas. BTW, bought a little more ISM yesterday at $22.02. Good timing or what?

Two, actually. But its one thing when it is just me in the car. Its another when it is DW, both kids, both dogs and all our luggage/crap.

Not the end of the world, but aggravating all the same. I am very glad they were in the monster van.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. This forum (thanks, Dory), the exchange of ideas, and the spirit of community is one of the things I'm thankful for. A special thanks to the moderators who keep things civil.

Brewer,
Glad to hear everyone is okay. I recall you were not entirely pleased with the monster van--maybe there will be a silver lining to the crunch-em-up.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving to the Forum!!!

You've probably seen this one before, but...

A retiree in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says, "I hate
to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are
divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough."

"Pop, what are you talking about," the son screams.

"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the dad says.
"We're sick and tired of each other, and I'm sick of talking about
this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her." And he hangs up.

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone.

"Like Heck they're getting a divorce, she shouts. "I'll take care of this."

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her dad, "You are NOT
getting divorced! Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my
brother back and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then don't do a
thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" And she hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone, smiles and turns to his wife.

"They're coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way."
---------


Happy Thanksgiving!

Isn't that the best part of getting some distance between you and the wolf? Glad everyone is OK.

Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone!!!

Happy Thanksgiving all!

I am thankful that I am sitting here on the computer, peace and quiet around me, while Greg is in the kitchen hard at work.

Family hits us at about 1:00pm.

Greg is putting the stuffing in the cupcake tins that someone (Astromeria?) suggested. He made florescent blue jello with cream cheese and maraschino cherries for my brother. Sweet.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Brew, you sure have a family history of rear end accidents (I am sure someone will make a joke out of that comment). Glad to hear all is well and I am sure the beer will taste even better once you are at home and eating some turkey.

And...the wildcats suck again this year :P
