Default Happy Thanksgiving, you MOrons!

I'm going incommunicado, at least as far as the 'Net is concerned, through the Holiday weekend.

Even with the economy, politics in general, global warming (or not) and occasional KP messages, we are still living in a wonderful time.

So, I wish you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

I'm with you, PR. We do have a lot to be thankful for, indeed.

Well, I'm having a great time. I get to enjoy a bit of Holiday Cheer. My kids are grown up and have never been arrested. I'm still riding bikes. I can buy any bike I want any time I want. No one is popping mortar rounds at me. I'm not living in Kalifornia any more. Life is good. The Holidays are great. Gonna have the family duty for Thanksgiving so I'm hosting about a dozen people and the second fridge is full of beer. I've survived a heck of a lot of shyt in my life so it's all gravy now. All you guys who hate the Holidays can KMA. I'm gonna have a great time, like always. You're all invited.

I'm with you, Seruzawa. I like the holidays, and have been to one party already, complete with ham and turkey. I'll have 8 people here on Thanksgiving, and although we won't be shooting guns this year, it will still be fun, with lots of food and wine, beer and laughter. Everyone will eat too much, drink a bit, have lots of fun and be happy.

And while I can't buy any bike I want, I have the bikes I love, and can afford to restore them and ride them, so life is great! My son is grown and other than traffic tickets, hasn't run afoul of the law, so again, I am grateful. My Granddaughters are beautiful, smart and healthy, so I am properly grateful for that. My main ride is reliable and the sidecar is cool....again, I'm grateful.

The weather, on the other hand, sucks, but then, I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and it occasionally rains a bit here......

And I have all the wood in for the winter. Can't ask for more than that!

I agree. The holidays are about goodwill, and if they don't like that they can screw themselves!

You might end up shooting guns after all!

Things Klazy Ken is Thanks-Full For:

In spite of my best efforts to kill myself in my 20's, 30's, and even early 40's, I'm still here and intact enough to enjoy riding my motorcycle.

My son still thinks his Dad is cool and likes hanging out with me.

Mom is cooking another giant feast tomorrow at the family homestead in Cocoa Beach.

We just finished moving out of "The Complex" and into a suburbian dream home complete with Captialist Lackey Schwimming Pool and Two Car Garage.

I have great pals I've never met at MO!

Sales Up! Profits UP! KLAZY KEN SAY YOU TAKE MY SEMINAR, YOU MAKE MILLION DOLLA OVA HORRIDAY!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. I'm grateful for the simple things: I can take a hot shower every morning, and I can go into the supermarket and buy all types of fruits and veggies, no matter which season it is.

And while I am always drooling (figuratively speaking) over motorcycles I don't have, I am grateful for the two in my garage that are just waiting for me to get on and go.
