Hello All, and Happy Thanksgiving!

I've been sawing up a sawdust storm this long Thanksgiving weekend, even booked off an extra day so I can finish the bathroom cabinets that have been dragging on far too long. Yet another thing to be thankful for …my incredible and patient wife.

Working in the shop sure has giving me time to think and realize, again, just how much I have to be grateful for.

Well got to get back to the bed time routine (I am thankful for the wonderful children I have been blessed with), good night all!

Well Matt,
We are not very traditional here since we've moved to Brandon, we're just sort of starting new ones. Maple Glazed salmon, Ceasar salad, roast potatoes and of course pumpkin pie was the menu today. I had to apologize as I was cooking the salmon as sawdust kept falling from my clothes; but hey it was maple sawdust so it kind of fit in LOL! Jenn is a great cook but this is the one meal that my kids prefer I cook and its a tradition I do not mind at all :)

Does "Thanksgiving" in Manitoba have a specific historical background like the Pilgrims & Indians story in the US? Or is it more a "Hallmark" holiday designed to give thanks (and also sell greeting cards?) Just curious.

I'd never really thought about the tradition behind it, I'd always assumed it was a 'post-harvest being grateful for enough food to get through the winter' thing. I'll have to find out more about it now that you've peaked my curiosity.

You are a bit late. Thanksgiving in England is on July 4th.
