From my home office window, it’s not uncommon to see an impressive buck strut out from our now leafless woods. Geese are still headed south, and every so often, a half dozen wild turkeys make an appearance in the neighbor’s yard. I just bought the first pickup truckload of pellets for my shop heater last Saturday. Yep, no question about it…it’s late Fall, with all the changes November brings. And come Thursday, many of us will be enjoying that bountiful annual meal with family and friends, giving thanks. I know I will! Which brings me to this simple wish for you all: In whatever way you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope it’s peaceful and full of joy. Maybe by the end of the day, you’ll be eagerly anticipating getting into the shop on Friday to work on those holiday gifts — more power to you!
Happy Thanksgiving, all.
