Happy Thanksgiving

Whether it's Goose, Turky, Moose, Salmon, Conch, Bear, Beef or Barley, have a good Thanksgiving. It's my favorite holiday, a real family gathering. My daughters are down here with their whole crew and we're going to take the Searider out and snorkle Buck Island tomorrow followed by a feast. Possibly with a little luck we might add a couple of Bugs to the menu (local for spiney lobster).

I'm hoping to sneak out to to the yard to work on my Searider for an hour or so on Thanksgiving! I'd rather be going ribbing like you, but will have plenty of time on the water next week, coaching a regatta in St. Pete, FL.

Wife's family will be here, including the brother that's feuding with her. Should be a good one

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Thanks, Tomas;

Hope you have a pleasant Thanksgiving as well.

I believe I'm stuck on the hard; problems with the tow vehicle.

Other than that, it's a chance to get some maintenance stuff done on the boat, eat too much, see some relatives who have conspicuously absent, and probably drink too much as well.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone;

jky

To quote an old favorite t-shirt of mine given by a female friend: "MY BOAT: IT MAY TAKE ALL MY MONEY BUT AT LEAST IT DOESN'T BITCH"

Same to you - funny how Thanksgiving is almost ignored by us Brits and yet we started it prob thousands of years ago.

Maybe we should reinstate it - any excuse for a good party!!!
