Happy Thanksgiving

Hello Friends and Happy Thanksgiving.

For many, Thanksgiving will be spent like this...

And I think that is great.  I also think the little girl has much wisdom.  But not all traditions look like this.  Want to see me and MOM's tradition?  

We go to a place where people are waiting outside, some with their pups, to get a Thanksgiving meal.

Inside the hungry are fed and they are thankful.

Can you guess what we do next?  I have given you several hints in this photo.

That's right, hiking, camping and hopefully fishing.  Although we will not have this much snow this time (in fact it is raining right now, I hope it stops cuz you know I am not a fan of being in the rain).  Anyway it is still a great tradition, one I have enjoyed for many years and I am thankful for a MOM who takes me on such grand adventures.  But truth be told if we just plant our butts on the couch, have some chicken wings and watch football that would be perfect too.  

To you my friends I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving and I hope you are surrounded by the ones you love.  MOM and I are thankful for each and everyone of you, you have enriched our lives.


  1. Goose, I wish you and your Mom, Michelle, a very Happy Thanksgiving.
