Yep! Mostly the same, except our harvest is earlier. 

I am at my daughters, visiting her two grandgirls.  There will be three grandparents, two parents, and two grandgirls, and an uncle and an aunt with B/F.  And then there will be "Waggie-Maggie", Nana's labradoodle.  A pretty good thanksgiving table, I think.

    TWAS THE NIGHT OF THANKSGIVING,

    I TRIED COUNTING SHEEP.
    []
    THE LEFTOVERS BECKONED -
    THE DARK MEAT AND WHITE,
    BUT I FOUGHT THE TEMPTATION
    WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT.
    []
    TOSSING AND TURNING WITH ANTICIPATION,

    GOBBLED UP TURKEY AND BUTTERED POTATOES,
    PICKLES AND CARROTS, BEANS AND TOMATOES.

    I FELT MYSELF SWELLING SO PLUMP AND SO ROUND,
    'TIL ALL OF A SUDDEN, I ROSE OFF THE GROUND.
    I CRASHED THROUGH THE CEILING, FLOATING INTO THE SKY,
    WITH A MOUTHFUL OF PUDDING AND A HANDFUL OF PIE.
    BUT, I MANAGED TO YELL AS I SOARED PAST THE TREES....
    HAPPY EATING TO ALL - PASS THE CRANBERRIES, PLEASE.
     
     
     
    MAY YOUR STUFFING BE TASTY,
    MAY YOUR TURKEY BE PLUMP.
    MAY YOUR POTATOES 'N GRAVY HAVE NARY A LUMP.
    MAY YOUR YAMS BE DELICIOUS.
    MAY YOUR PIES TAKE THE PRIZE,
    MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS!!

Yeah, a Happy T'Giving to all Canucks! Despite some political glitches, we have much to celebrate and be grateful for.

I believe that we invented the holiday, did we not? I much prefer the Oct. date to the Nov. date of our US pals. Too close to Xmas. One can only eat so much turkey.

We had our big dinner Friday to accomodate friends and we're already into 'turkey surprise' and turkey soup.

We celebrate it on the Sunday, had the entire family (14) at our place.  Turkey, dressing, mashed potatos with gravy, salad, yams, carrots and the obligatory pumpkin pie washed down with a glass or two of Shiraz.  Smiley

Same back at 'cha Sir Charles!  I and a nice crowd of PG shooters attended a black powder rendezvous at Cache Creek this weekend.  Potluck dinner on Saturday evening featured two turkeys, and all of the other stuff.  It was a great time.

Yep, {belch ....}, "feasting" is the operative word .....

Got together with some friends "from the creek" Saturday. Dinner was an organically grown bird with organic veggies as well. Best part is the good conversation with people who appreciate the quality of life we have in this community.

It was my honour and pleasure to say grace. They played the game that the last person with a finger in the air got the job. I said - "What?" and was nominated. Damned hearing aids, any way .... ;>)

The day before my wife and I walked part of the Poker Ride trail as our contribution for the Gymkhana club's annual ride, and yesterday I walked one of my favourite haunts in glorious October sunshine looking for a deer, Sharps 50-70 carbine in hand. Bambi didn't show, but there was a LOT of scat from a very active bear.

I get daily shows of moose feeding in the lake and the geese are staring to show up. Life is good, indeed ......

My Dear PJ -
I am happy for your enjoyment!

Much as I appreciate the honor and opportunity to offer grateful thanks to our Maker, the corporeal participants of our feasts have learned to ask someone else to handle the prayer. I have a tendency to be as verbose "in the flesh" as I am on these web pages here....

The last time I become so engrossed in the effort that the food was becoming cold and the gravy had solidified....

Well, my glorious Thanksgiving Day threw a shoe ...., or at least the utility trailer did.

My wife and I took the dogs for a walk (rifle in hand, of course) that included a stop at the local gravel dump. We shovelled in a LOT of gravel, had lunch and walked the dogs.

On the way home (a distance of some 25 kms or so), a tire blew on the trailer, just 2 kms shy of home. Did I have a spare? Get serious ..... ;>)
My wife opted to walk 3 kms to the closest neighbour's for help. In the interval, only ONE of several vehicles that went by bothered to stop and ask if I required assistance. She was the wife of a local rancher/hunting guide, the one who recently gifted us with a bear carcass.

My wife returned with the other friends and I shovelled off half of the gravel into their trailer (my old utility trailer I sold to them) so we could jack up mine to remove the blown tire. That done, we dropped off the shovelled gravel at my place and I drove 70 kms to town to buy a new wheel and tire.

That was quickly installed and we returned to a welcome supper of turkey left overs from the feast we attended yesterday. It was a great day, a mini adventure and once again we found out who are our real friends.

Am I grateful? Was it a good day? Yadambetcha!

Well, 2016 sees us all well. I hope my fellow Canucks, their families and favorite pets are also doing well. My family has been joined by my Grand dog 'Fredo, a very cute but wilful Lagotto Romagnolo

To you all fellow travellers on the way of life I hope you can join us in giving thanks, as we will do for you next month. Meanwhile; - Have a great Columbus Day weekend.

For the past several years, I have spent my thanksgiving dinner with black powder shooters and our families at the South Cariboo Sportsmen's Assoc. "Desert Shoot."  It is a black powder event at Cache Creek British Columbia where we shoot Saturday and Sunday rifle trail, pistol trail, knife and tomajhawk trail, Primitive archery trail, trap, and long range cartridge and muzzle loading rifle.  there's a lot to get in in two days, and this year, it poured with rain and snow all of Saturday.  Sunday was nice and the dinner extraordinary, as was the camaraderie.
So blessings to all my fellow Canucks, and our American buddies.

HAPPY THANKSGING 2017!  I was so enjoying myself in the company of family and friends that I almost forgot my Pards here in the Great White North and all symathizers elsewhere. yesterday evening I ate so much despite my effort to hold back a little that i couldn't eat dessert until breakfast time! Wink

For all those to our South, have a great Columbus Day, at least until it is abolished as an unwelcome symbol of colonialism. We will wish, in advance, that all's well for your own Thanksgiving Day.

Happy Thanksgiving My Dear Sir C!
And A Happy Day of Thanks to all you Northern types.

Yep! Mostly the same, except our harvest is earlier. 

probably a wise thing, since you are so far north you run out of daylight much sooner than those of us near the Mexican Border!
