Happy Thanksgiving


The tradition of the Pilgrims’ first Thanksgiving is steeped in myth and legend. Few people realize that the Pilgrims did not celebrate Thanksgiving the next year, or any year thereafter, though some of their descendants later made a “Forefather’s Day” that usually occurred on December 21 or 22. Several Presidents, including George Washington, made one-time Thanksgiving holidays. In 1827, Mrs. Sarah Josepha Hale began lobbying several Presidents for the creation of Thanksgiving as a national holiday, but her lobbying was unsuccessful until 1863 when Abraham Lincoln finally made it a national holiday.

Fairy Godmother:

But the world is full of zanies and fools

Who don’t believe in sensible rules

And won’t believe what sensible people say

And because these daft and dewey-eyed dopes

Keep building up impossible hopes


Things are happening everyday

Cinderella (1997) (TV)

Weekly Photo Challenge – Victory – Biffle won at MIS (Michigan International Speedway) a few years ago.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Victory.”

Last year was the best Father’s Day ever, 1,000th win for Ford and to have my daughter there for her first victory lane. I’m not sure how to top that, but hopefully something spectacular will happen. Michigan is one of my favorite tracks; it’s a big fast place and has lots of room to race. There is always a lot of strategy going on. Fuel mileage and pit stops are very important.
