Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving fellow citizens!  I love Thanksgiving.  It is honestly my favorite holiday of the year for a couple of good reasons.  Thanksgiving is an American original.  No one else celebrates this day except Americans.  We are unique.  For me it brings back memories of sitting around the dining room table with my dad, brothers and sisters and mom hustling around trying to get all the food on the table while it was still hot.

More often than not, there would also be aunts, uncles, cousins and a few single friends there also.  That's the way it was and that's the way it should be.  Sharing with family and friends.  So, Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends here at Windknots & Tangled Lines.  Please pass the pumpkin pie!

While I'm busy thanking people, it seems like a good time to do a shout out to some new friends.  I've really enjoyed reading Casting Across.  Matthew does an excellent job of recognizing other blogs and posting some really thoughtful stories.

I believe I've talked about Between Two Banks before but if you haven't checked them out, you should. Jillian is an absolutely amazing photograher, fly fisherwoman and fly rod sock maker.  Jacob is a bamboo rod maker and fly fisherman.  These two have something for everyone who loves fly fishing as much as they do.

Kevin Fricke is the guy behind Tenkara Rising.  A Colorado guy that is also a simply amazing photographer. You don't have to fish Tenkara to appreciate Kevin's work.  Besides, he fishes a lot of the same waters I do so I can appreciate seeing what I'm missing out on.

Whiskey in a Snipe Glass is the blog written by my friend Al R.  I've had a feeling that perhaps Al and I were somehow separated at birth and have now found each other.  Great thoughtful writing and some great stories.

It seems like the blogging world is getting smaller and smaller and it's our job to keep it going.  Visit, Comment and Share is the word from this old turkey on Thanksgiving.
