Happy Thanksgiving to All Our American Buddies

Hey All,
Happy Thanksgiving to All !! And despite the recent monetary woes,
there is still plenty to be thankful for...in fact. at 68 I'm thrilled
every day my feet hit the floor; but this Thursday is a day set aside
to be thinking of family and friends, so make it a happy day.
Take care.

Hey Brian,
Thank you for your glad tidings.
Once in a while, I like to think about how truly good life has been to me (and by extension, to all of the rest of the groupers here).
Our experience is so unlike that of the rest of the planet's people!
Happy Holidays!

Right, Happy Birdday to everyone.
Um, has someone already warned turkeys like Cliffy and Parakeet to duck tomorrow? Oh, good!

Thanks Brian;
Looking to the east, everyday is a new chance, I'm a very happy riser and peaceful sleeper (Snorer?).
If I make a BAD golf shot, at least I'm on the right side of the grass....

Thanks Brian. Thanksgiving Day came a bit early for me this year. Tuesday was our annual shop Fair/Open House at school and a bunch of last Junes grad showed up. Every one of them working iin the trade and continuing to learn. One fellow did a small comversational program on the TRAK mill. Beep, beep in rapid succession and he had it running. Last year it was beep............beep and son on. Great to see him so confident. Another showed me a cell phone picture of a drill bit he is working on, 7000 lbs and tons of complex CNC milling on it.
Another former student is in his second year at University of Connecticut school of engineering, on full scholarship to boot. He continues to work at Whitcraft Tool a local top level shop. They love hime there and his future is unlimited.
Really made my day and makes up for the chuckle heads that come through the shop.

Thank you, Brian. We feel the same way. Everyone is together, the pumpkin pie just came out of the oven and the turkey just went in. No rain, no wind, and the ancient furnace is still putting out heat. Loose shoes, etc...let the economy go to hell, I'll take this any day.
