Happy Thanksgiving

I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving today. I hope you had many, many things to be thankful for. I know that I have so many things to be thankful for and the guys that work for us are at the top of that list today. For the past 20 some years we celebrate Thanksgiving with our crew in the barn. I always fix them "the works." Today there was 38 of us. I know it wasn't decorated "Martha Style" but it is always fun. We had 5 turkeys (we only ate 3 and a half). So that means turkey leftovers tomorrow!!!! They only worked till noon and then they came into the shop to eat. The boys got a fire going earlier so it was nice and toasty. The girls and my sister, Donna set up the tables, started the coffee and helped haul in all the food. A couple of the guys brought their families to eat with us. My brother and his wife and kids came. My sister and her husband and daughter came. My kids and their kids were here. Cody, my nephew was here. It was a BIG bunch of people I love. Gaspar even brought his guitar and sang for us. Boy, can he sing. After getting warm and their bellies full they were so tired. Today it has been twenty seven days straight of work. I am so thankful to have the best guys working for me. No matter what I ask them, the answer is always yes. They work so hard and always with a smile on their face. Some times they are singing while they are working. I'm glad we can call it a day early today, they deserve some rest. Tomorrow we will be back at it. It is our last day for the helicopter. I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel.
