    Thanksgiving is my fav holiday. You have food, family, and football, who can beat that? (oh yeah, my wifes and mine anniversary as well)

    But who is going to go out and work?

    I sure as heck won't be working, but I will continue my time-honored tradition of going bowling with my uncle on Thanksgiving. He has yet to beat me in 15 years. I figure bowling's no worse than football, right?

    Well happy anniversary :drinkup: ....... No work for me unless we get an early snow storm...... Last year I plowed both Christmas day and New Years day, made some money but would rather have the day off.....

    Now I can see why you want to get out of the plowing. My wife would be none too pleased either. Back when I did plowing at my old job, my greatest fear was plowing during the Super Bowl. You know somewhere in this country someone's stuck plowing during the Super Bowl, and he ain't happy...

    The only work I will be doing on Thanksgiving is pushing myself away from the table.

    LOL! I hear that. No work on holidays, might not work on Friday either. Usually after the push from the table, I end up on the couch. ZZZzzz... :sleeping:

    Helllllls no.
    I also may take friday off, it'll be optional, however landscapers are allowed to put leaves in the street here until Dec. 1st so I always say the more the merrier. It's a good end of the month motivator, when motivations are starting to fall off as winter draws near.
