Turkey Day

Thanksgiving has to be my favorite holiday. I have so much to be thankful for. An amazing daughter who is everything to me, a fabulous wife, great family and great friends. After that everything is secondary and as they say icing on the cake. I love spending time with all the family, eating a ton of great food and my watching the Lions play every Thanksgiving (although lately not very well)

Today I got out for a nice easy spin in the morning to burn off a few calories before I began to pack them in. While I was out riding I noticed something out of the corner of my eye. It so happened to be a deer. I slowed and thought of getting my phone to snap a photo, but figured it would scamper before I could. But he didn't seem to be in much of a hurry, and neither was I so I figured I'd try. I quickly snapped a pic from far away, but then wondered how much closer I could get. Well I got so close I think I could have brought some venison to the Thanksgiving feast.

The football game was good until the whole incident with Suh happened and it was all downhill from there. Another disappointing Thanksgiving day loss.

I ate a good lunch and wasn't stuffed at all. I felt great. Then about an hour before we left I started to have a lit bit of this and a little bit of that and here I sit now barely being able to see over my protruding gut.

My wife is currently getting ready to head out for a mad evening of shopping. She is completely nuts, but if she finds great deals for things we need to get I'll be very happy she did. I just don't have the will power or mind to find crowds and wait in long lines. Not my style.

Gravel Grovel in two days. Still haven't registered. Hmmmm....

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone
Breeze On
