Just got back from my sister in-laws: 40 people, LOTS of food, lots of drink, all in all a very good day.

One of my favorite traditions is trying to get in the car by 12:00 so we can hear the annual playing of Alice's Restaurant. Ahhhh, tradition.

Happy Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving story

    A few years back at this time of year (and some of you may remember)I had a terrible accident at work. Long story short I snapped both my left leg bones just above the ankle and dislocated what was left of the ankle. It was a disaster to say the least. Here I was going into winter as a heating man unable to move, nevermind think of working. With a family to support and no chance to do so, things obviously weren't going my way. Worry set in almost immediately. The doc said at the time I would miss AT LEAST six months and that was if everything went smoothly. SIX MONTHS with no income and a family. Nice huh? When I finally came down off of all the drugs I was on and able to move with the aid of the crutches, I stumbled over to the computer. When I arrived here at HH.com I found a thread started by Dan on my behalf. It was a thread of well wishes and prayers and donations. The depression immediately slipped away and was replaced by motivation. The accident happened on November 21st, I began therapy on Feb 8 and was back to work in early April. Way less than the six months which was predicted if things went smoothly. To this day the doctor says my recovery was a miracle of sorts in that it took so little time. I'll attribute that to Dan and ALL OF YOU who came to my aid when I was down and out for the count(or so I thought). So, when Thanksgiving rolls around every year this is the memory I have of Thanksgiving past. Its a great feeling to know that Dan, Firedragon, and especially my friend Alan over at OTT, were so very instrumental in my recovery. My email box was filled every day with well wishes from this entire HH community. So as I sit at my table once again with my family, I'll be thinking of all of you guys, my extended family, and wishing you all the best as you all have done for me. I will NEVER be able level the playing field. Thats what Thanksgiving means to me. Thank you all!!! And by the way, the ankle is considered 100%. Thank you Dan and TLM. You both have changed my life.

    You guys are a tonic

    for what ails me. I've been forgetting how blessed I am. Thanks for sharing. Tommy, God bless you. I remember your ordeal and how you came through it. Thank you Dan for this site. The generosity of spirit on this site is a reflection of what's right in the world. Now, if only the Redskins could get back to winning, all would be perfect. :) Happy Thanksgiving Everybody. WW

    Tragedy strikes our Thanksgiving

    Through a confluence of circumstances, the dog was left alone with the pumpkin pie out on the picnic table. In the short time of this situation the pie was irretrievable, and after years of faithful service, our dog was determined to be a "bad dog." He acts remorseful but I'm pretty sure I see a doggy smirk of satisfaction whenever he thinks no one is watching. The pumpkin pie is survivied only by the whipped cream. :( WW

    My deepest condolences on the loss of your pie. It just helps to show the rest of us how thankful we should be for what we do have.

    Word of warning. What went in a pumpkin pie on one end will probably come out looking similar on the other end. Please don't reuse.

    This too shall come to pass...

    and when it does, make DARNED sure the beast is outside, lest you really wanted to clean the carpets sooner than later...

    Been there, seen that, NOT a sight I'd care to repeat.

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    But the last laugh...

    is evidenced by the orange stain 'round the dog's jowls.
