And right back to you George all the way from Alaska where throughout the year a turkey is just a bad cast.

If I were to try saying something meaningful I'd say something like; Being thankful is one of the most relative things I know of, it isn't about how much you have it's about being thankful for every thing whether great or miniscule.

A friend just sent this to me. Speaks volumes!

My Soul Has A Hat - Mario de Andrade

I counted my years and realized that I have less time to live by, than I have lived so far.

I feel like a child who won a pack of candies: at first, he ate them with pleasure but when he realized that there was little left, he began to taste them intensely.

I have no time for endless meetings where the statutes, rules, procedures and internal regulations are discussed, knowing that nothing will be done.

I no longer have the patience to stand absurd people who, despite their chronological age, have not grown up.

My time is too short: I want the essence; my spirit is in a hurry. I do not have much candy in the package anymore.

I want to live next to humans, very realistic people who know how to laugh at their mistakes and who are not inflated by their own triumphs and who take responsibility for their actions. In this way, human dignity is defended and we live in truth and honesty.

It is the essentials that make life useful.

I want to surround myself with people who know how to touch the hearts of those whom hard strokes of life have learned to grow with sweet touches of the soul.

Yes, I'm in a hurry. I'm in a hurry to live with the intensity that only maturity can give.

I do not intend to waste any of the remaining desserts. I am sure they will be exquisite, much more than those eaten so far.

My goal is to reach the end satisfied and at peace with my loved ones and my conscience.

We have two lives and the second begins when you realize you only have one.



Still trying to figure out where the hat fits in, but no matter. I'm very thankful for my Speypages friends, near and far!

I always take everyday as it comes. Example...I haven't fished all season, haven't had a golf club in hand all year, haven't driven a car in 6 months+ due to a serious back/spine issue. Surgery delayed for several months is finally scheduled for December 10 and if all goes as it is supposed to, I'll be back in the saddle in no time. If not...it is what it is. I have much to be thankful for in this life so no complaints.

Petri Heil,
George

Happy thanksgiving as well everyone

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
