Just a few thoughts on Thanksgiving 2009.

First off I can’t believe that it is almost 2010. Pretty soon we can start talking like old timers on a front porch, “I ‘member back in aught nine when….” Anyway I think times are a changin’ and that we need to enjoy the simple things.

This year I am thankful for my family. I’m thankful that my Grandma lives in Wyoming so I am able to take a mini vacation. I’m also thankful for my food and all the other typical things of the year that we always spout off year after year. This year I would like to share some of the little things I have enjoyed today.

I’m thankful for shooting guns, and having another good time with my cousin Eric. I’m thankful that the Wal-Mart was open today so we could buy some cheap coconuts, cabbage, canned yams, and cantaloupes to use as targets.

I’m thankful for the entertainment of watching a cabbage explode like bomb when I shot my 44 mag with my personal protection rounds. I’m thankful that Eric is amazing with a shotgun and that he can shoot a cantaloupe out of the air and watching it explode like an erupting volcano.

I’m thankful for shooting a shotgun just a few feet a way from a coconut and watching it practically disintegrate into a million pieces.

I’m thankful for my Grandma for letting us use her .22 that is older than both Eric and I put together, and shooting shotgun shells from 50 yards. Yes, we are that good of shots.

I’m thankful for Eric having a First-Aid Kit in his truck, so when I smashed my nail up I didn’t bleed all over the place.

I’m thankful for wining world domination at Risk. And I’m thankful for Heidi for being my personal weapon that helped me become the world dictator.

And I’m Thankful for my Grandmas great culinary skill’s that induced a quick and much needed turkey coma.

What about all of you? What are some of the little simple things, other than the normal stuff, that you all thankful for?
