Happy Thanksgiving to all. It's picture perfect day in NYC, the turkey is in the oven, and the upper west side has been festive and swarming with kids since yesterday. Thanks to our soldiers and to our founding fathers for this great country that will endure and prevail over forces of evil.

Good Morning!

Just awoke in the In-Law's house in Snoqualmie, Washington. Nice view of Mount Si out the bedroom window, with a bit of snow on top. Overcast but quite pretty. Uncle Jim is glad to just be back from work in Dzerzhinsk, Russia, which according to the Guinness Book of World Records "is the most chemically polluted city on Earth."

Fascinating tales about that. Hope everybody has a great Thanskgiving. Uncle Jim could not be happier to be home:)

Bye.

I like many of you, remember those Holiday meals in some distance lands while serving this great Nation. Nothing will ever equal the "chow" lines at Thanksgiving or Christmas..Nothing..

Here is wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving from Gillette, WY. This morning awoke to a white covering of the brown earth..frosting on the cake..

Bless everyone!

geezer, that is a hard act to follow..

Well daddy, how can a city, named after the head of the Cheka, formerly Rastyapino, be anything but vile,

Well it is now that very special part of Thanksgiving Day when the Diva decides it is time to make her beloved pies and pulls Red and her dad in as helpers.

I think I will open some champagne and get back to reading.

Oh by the way, narciso. Finished Moses book. Not only Soros funding specifically called out as the most generous patron but he and family spent time working for Nyerere. Dept of Ed there. Really cannot make this stuff up.

The turkey and all the trimmings were great for us and lots of our family.
Hope it was the same for all JOMers.

"Nothing will ever equal the "chow" lines at Thanksgiving or Christmas"

I don't know if they still allow it but if you can don't miss the Thanksgiving dinner at military chow halls if you're a retiree.
We used to go with friends to Ft Jackson S.C. It gives you hope for the future of America to see the young recruits preparing to safeguard our nation.

May God bless those to guard our nation today and all who have done so in the past.

Danube of Thought on IPad

CNS News, via Druge:

"Forget all that turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, today should be a day of fasting and atonement for American 'sin.' That’s according to Robert Jensen, a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Jensen, known for his hard-left politics, also calls Thanksgiving a 'white-supremacist holiday.'

"Jensen’s opinion piece 'No Thanks for Thanksgiving,' appeared on the far-left, Soros-connected website Alternet on Thanksgiving eve. In it, he wrote how Native Americans suffered because of the 'European invasion of the Americas.' He went on to compare the Founding Fathers to Nazi Germany.'“How does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis?' he asked."

Janet

Amen, pagar!
and a blessed Thanksgiving for the geezer family. I love the handle 'geezer'...My handle for family competitions is 'the Texas smokin' geezer'. hah!

Jack is Back

Well, it seems Detroit is up for the Thanksgiving Day special. Up 7 on the Texans at home. Hmmmm! Jaguar 3 OT hangover?

pagar, When I was single living in DC I did many a Thanksgiving Day at Bolling and/or Andrews. Best dinner ever, plus you were expected to go back for seconds or even thirds.

JiB, If it is still possible, I believe your son would enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner with the troops.

Saw this pic on Twitter and thought or our Janet. IIRC she is from the same area of Texas.

Yummy!

Captain Ed reminds us of one of Thanksgivings great moments;
"As God as my witness I thought turkeys could fly."

"certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis?' "

Thomas Collins

Incredibly stupid NFL rule. Take the timeout away for the coach throwing the challenge flag, but still review the touchdown. Texans get luky.

Danube of Thought on IPad

The rule is indefensible.

Thomas Collins

At least it's a good game, DOT. I don't recall the Lions playing this well on Thanksgiving Day in awhile.

Did you hear Esiason on Suh on the halftime show? Esiason went out of his way to call out Suh as a dirty player. Esiason didn't think that the Suh groin kick could have been unintentional.

Jack is Back

So, the replacements get redemption with that play?

You're right DoT a stupid rule not based on equity which all rules should be based on. If the Lions lose this one then they can commiserate with their cheesehead brethren regarding NFL larceny.

pagar

On the last thread, JiB mentioned the mess in Denmark.

You can add France.

DoT,

I think the Texans want to win it more than the Lions (with the help of the stupid NFL rules). I thought he hooked it and I would have to modify or delete this comment.

Now to the Skins and "hail victory".

Janet

Denmark, France,....and Britain. Muslim Gang Rape Whitewashed in Britain

The article reminds us of this quote - "Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, Australia’s senior Muslim cleric, to state what has since become painfully obvious to those who truly understand the sheer horror of Muslim attitudes toward non-Muslim women:

“If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it … whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat? The uncovered meat is the problem….if she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred.”"

Well, at least we'll have a lot of diversity. Diversity is important, right? BTW, who exactly told us how great diversity is? Is there any culture that isn't so great? How bout cannibals? Do we have to understand, appreciate, & accommodate THEM?

jimmyk

Lions got ripped off--two huge calls going against them. But they still had a chance to win it and didn't, getting too cautious and leaving Hansen with a long one.

Thanks again for your blog, TM.

Hope you (and all JOMers) have had a wonderful day.

Happy Thanksgiving to Tom Maguire and all of the JOM family.

Last July a mother turkey brought out her brood to show off to the neighborhood. The birds have been around all Summer and Fall. I've been putting some snacks out for them and it's just a hoot to see them show up every so often.
Thought I'd share a picture of them. They move out rapidly and most of the pics were of their tail ends. This side shot was the best I could do.

CH,

For the 1st time in a long time they can only get better.

And you know, the only games for us that count are the Boys games. But its still early and we have never won in Dallas on Thanksgiving day. I am still in shock from 74 and Clint Longley's bomb to Drew Pearson.

It was brutal, narc. It was supposed to be a great day as Mrs H and I announced our engagement. Let me put it this way: My future inlaws certainly figured out what team my family and I were in the tank for.

narciso,

One of the reasons it is unworkable. Too many work-arounds and they are ones that will piss off a lot of people especially those who think ObamaCare is perfect for them. Well, guess what sucker - its not and now you must deal with the consequence of the election.

Yes, that was a brilliant maneuver worthy of Captain Tupolev, but like they said in that Python sketch, at least they got the hat;

Boys are coming back. FG to make it 28 to 6. Every point is important in Jerryland.

narciso

Well there does seem to be eras like the 49ers in the 80s, the Cowboys in the 90s, et al, although the turnover seems higher,

Captain Hate

The turnover is higher, narc. There aren't any head coaches doing groundbreaking things. And the league push for parity is paying off.

narciso

Yes, what is the point of that, it's supposed to be a competition

Jack is Back

London Fletcher, old man, makes it more likely that the Skins get to 5 and 6.

Jack is Back

Oh, oh. Dallas scores quickly. I don't like the looks of this.

Danube of Thought on IPad

Salary cap and free agency have made it very hard to establish a dynasty.

When the Skins scored their third TD my first thought was "let's see Jerry non-stop."

My hope is that, even though no penalty was called, the league will review that Suh play and sit the son of a bitch down for a few weeks.

Like I said at 7:07, not good. Bad vibes about this game.

Dinner consisting of:
* Turkey
* Mashed potatoes
* Butternut squash
* Cornbread and wild rice dressing (made with bacon grease) (which I made myself)
* Cranberry-orange relish (with brandy)
* A pleasant California red
is aboard.

Cake with wife's homemade chocolate icing is awaiting.

Detroit got screwed in game 1. Unfortunate.
Cowboys were stinking up the joint in game 2 but I'm getting nervous about it.
Game 3 coming if turkey coma doesn't come first.

Despite the world's troubles, life in this corner of the world is all good.

Hope it is in your corner too.

narciso, has Schaub's voice returned to normal from the soprano yet?

Breathing again. Whew.

Why do I do this to myself?

narciso,

Its an enigma - Suh is a very intelligent young man who is articulate enough to impress Biden, I guess, but has this mean, dirty streak in him when he doesn't need to have it. Strange.

He's half Jamaican and Cameroonian, as it turns out, a talent but as you say, a violent streak

A fine, fine day. My favorite Sister in Law seems to have a clean bill of health from her recent cancer bout and her hair has grown back.

Great news, daddy,

I'm not doing too badly, narciso. I trust things are well with you too.

This morning I presented an insufficiently jovial and festive mien to the TSA agent. Consequently, he felt called upon draw upon his vast repertoire and treat me to the wittiest material to be found therein, revolving around contraband and illegal weaponry. Any passenger making similar attempts at humor would have found himself considerably delayed. An embittering experience that rates at about 150 times better than what was encountered in Spain.

Finally, a note for fellow perusers of the venerable Daily Mail: I found, against all expectation, that it is possible to spend 6 hours in the Miami airport and not spot a Kardashian.
