Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day! I hope that you celebrated with your family and friends.

I was invited to John and Mimi's home for the Thanksgiving meal. John sent me an email invitation to come early. "We will play simulated golf!", he told me. I lost our golf match by 5 strokes.

Mimi loves to cook, and she spent several hours preparing everything except the turkey. John prepared the turkey in his large outdoor smoker. Smoked turkey is wonderful to eat. The turkey had a great smoked flavor.

A lot to be thankful for!
I have a lot for which to be thankful this Thanksgiving. The auto accident that I had in March, 2014, resulted in my doctors finding that I had a bad aortic valve in my heart. A couple days later I had open-heart surgery.

Now I am doing wonderful. I am able to play a full round of golf. I bike all over the City of La Mesa. I feel great!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving - and indeed a lot to be thankful for

  2. So nice to hear you are doing so well. Happy belated Thanksgiving. Time to practice more golf? Enjoy it!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving Mr. Vagabond Supreme!!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving George, you're still an inspiration to all of us.

  5. And a belated Thanksgiving wish to you too. We had a turkey dinner here in San Carlos - but can't wait to get to Mazatlan to go to Fat Fish for ribs!
    So glad you are doing well and are happy.

  6. Happy day after Thanksgiving, George ~ great to hear from you and that you're happy ... ;)

  7. Your life has taken some twists and turns, some good, some not-so-good, but in the end you appreciate most of what has happened. That's a good thing, you have such a good attitude. I'm glad you had such a nice Thanksgiving with your friends. :)

  8. Glad all is well and your THANKSGIVING was great !!!
