It’s Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. I think it’s a big shopping day in the US. Some of my Facebook friends are getting up at about 4AM to go shopping.
I have an amp to repair today, Hopefully I can fix it. Should be simple enough, one speaker doesn’t work. Parts availability is the question. Hopefully I’ll find a broken wire and won’t need parts.
Dinner last night was pretty good. I rekkon there were a hundred people there. It was outdoors at some condos on Seven Mile Beach. I came home pretty full, and went to bed about 9:30, woke up at midnight till 2 and then back to sleep till 6 or so.
Now I’m getting coffeed up.
Have a good weekend.
Today is American Thanksgiving. From a big feast the Indians and Pilgrims had. In the USA. Tonight my friend, who is also American, is having a big Thanksgiving dinner and that’s where we’ll be.
In Canada Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October. Canadians give thanks for a successful harvest. The origins and reasons for American Thanksgiving are disputed, but I remember in grade school, learning that the Pilgrims didn’t bring any plows, shovels or building or farming equipment, and the Indians helped them and taught them how to survive. That being said, I always wondered why Thanksgiving wasn’t in the spring, after you’ve survived the winter, instead of November, when the worst weather is yet to come.
Other countries that celebrate Thanksgiving are:
Norfolk Island (Australian Territory)
It’s a good idea for me to be Thankful, and pick out the good things in my life. I have a really good life, but I tend to focus on the problems, not on what is good. I believe life is about continuous problem solving, but one should never focus entirely on the problems or forget the good things.
We rented this DVD and I watched it twice. (The Wife watched parts of it twice). It is a great movie about a bunch of retired spies who get put on a hit list so they have to fight back.
RED stands for Retired, Extremely Dangerous. It is a good mix of action and comedy, with a decent plot. I recommend it for you to watch.
We’re up early, we’re going diving at East End.
We haven’t been in a long time. Like two months.
I haven’t had my rebreather in the water since May. We’re diving open circuit again today.
I haven’t been out in my Kayak in forever either.
Actually my Wife set up the trip with a friend of hers from Costa Rica. I’m not sure I feel like going. I am in a VILE mood.
