Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

Have a great one, eat lots and remember to give thanks for all the good things we have. There are many people who look at the U.S.A with envy, who don't even have a shelter or know where their next meal is coming from, or when!

Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. You are correct. We have much to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm going to do some bow work in the wood shop today. Tomorrow I'm headed for Tulsa (2 1/2 hr drive) to watch my youngest daughter race in the BMX Grand Nationals (bicycle motocross). Three years ago she won the #1 plate in her age group in the Race of Champions. Hoping for a repeat.

Then Saturday will be Thanksgiving dinner with my oldest daughter and granddaughter. Busy two days ahead.

Heather had been away from racing for two years because of her job requiring her to work on Saturdays and some Sundays. Her schedule changed and she got back into it this year winning 1st place in the Kansas and Missouri state finals in her class.
The Race of Champions at the Grand Nationals is a different ball game all together. The moto she drew was against one ex-pro rider and three National Age Group riders who are stupid fast on a bicycle. She wound up with a 5th place finish in Cruiser Class.

It was a very long day and the mains didn't start until about 7pm. Over 570 motos were run that day. That's first moto, second moto, 1/8's, 1/4's, semi finals, and main event--570+ times in one day. During the races if someone hasn't crashed on the track there is one moto finishing, one halfway, and one starting. The gate drops just about every twelve seconds.

I left my house at 5am Friday morning and got home at 1:30am Saturday morning. A long day but I got to watch Heather and a lot of other people I know race and talk to a lot of friends during the day. On the way home I dodged a big buck sauntering across the road just two miles from my house. I don't need another front end rebuild. I haven't painted the car from the last one yet. :roll:
