Happy Thanksgiving

"My restaurants are never opened on Thanksgiving; I want my staff to spend time with their family if they can. My feeling is, if I can't figure out how to make money the rest of the year so that my workers can enjoy the holidays, then I don't deserve to be an owner."
- Michael Symon

"It's like being at the kids' table at Thanksgiving - you can put your elbows on it, you don't have to talk politics... no matter how old I get, there's always a part of me that's sitting there. "
- John Hughes

EUROPEAN PLASTIC BAGS with a SENSE OF HUMOR

line

PARAPROSDOKIANS...

(Winston Churchill loved them) are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected; frequently humorous.

1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.

2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until
you hear them speak.

4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

5. We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

6. War does not determine who is right - only who is left..

7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a
fruit salad.

8. They begin the evening news with 'Good Evening,' then proceed to tell
you why it isn't.

9. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is
research.

10. Buses stop in bus stations. Trains stop in train stations. On my desk
is a work station.

11. I thought I wanted a career. Turns out I just wanted paychecks.

12. In filling out an application, where it says, 'In case of emergency,
notify:' I put 'DOCTOR.'

13. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

14. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street
with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

15. Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a
successful man is usually another woman.

16. A clear conscience is the sign of a fuzzy memory.

17. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to
skydive twice.

18. Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.

19. There's a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so they
can't get away.

20. I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

21. You're never too old to learn something stupid.

22. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you
hit the target.

23. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

24. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

25. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in
a garage makes you a car.

26. Where there's a will, there are relatives.

And mine is.........

I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for
me to find one now.

We see corporate logos every day…BUT have you ever looked closely at them?


Do you see the arrow between the “E” and “x” ?? I had never noticed this before.


2nd and 3rd “t’s” are two people sharing a tortilla over a bowl of salsa


Probably the world’s most famous bike race. The “R” in “Tour” is a cyclist and the yellow circle the front wheel of a cycle. The O is the rear wheel, n'est pas?


Arrow probably means Amazon has everything from A to Z ??


There is a sideways chocolate kiss between “K” and “I”


There is a bear if you look closely at image of Matterhorn . Toblerone
chocolate bars originated in Berne , Switzerland whose symbol is the bear.


See “31” embedded in the “ B R” ?? Thirty one-derful flavors !!!


Northwest Airlines. Circle is a compass. Guess which direction the arrow in upper
left corner (or beginning of “W”) is pointing ??? (north west)


See the gorilla and lioness ??


Smiley face is also a “g” like in “goodwill”


Used to be the emblem for the Milwaukee Brewers. Baseball glove forms an “M” and a “B”. Logo was designed by a college art student.

A DEER STORY FROM ALASKA

A Heart Warming and Amazing Rescue , in Sitka Alaska

Amazing story...a miracle of sorts, really!
The Best Day Of Fishing Ever!

I've heard of salmon jumping into boats, but never anything quite like this...
Tom Satre told the Sitka Gazette that he was out with a charter group on his 62-foot fishing vessel when four juvenile black-tailed deer swam directly toward his boat.

"Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking directly at us. We could tell right away that the young bucks were distressed.

I opened up my back gate and we helped the typically skittish and absolutely wild animals onto the boat. In all my years fishing, I've never seen anything quite like it!

Once onboard, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering."

"This is a picture I took of the rescued bucks on the back of
my boat, the Alaska Quest. We headed forTaku Harbor .

Once we reached the dock, the first buck that we had pulled from the water hopped onto the dock, looked back as if to say 'thank you' and disappeared into the forest.

After a bit of prodding and assistance, two more followed, but the smallest deer needed a little more help.

This is me carrying the little guy.

My daughter, Anna, and son, Tim, helped the last buck to its feet.
We didn't know how long they had been in the icy waters or
if there had been others who did not survive. My daughter later told me that the experience was something that she would never forget,

and I suspect the deer felt the same way as well!"
