Happy Thanksgiving to All & Your Families! Sorry, I've missed a couple of days on the Blog, been out getting acquainted with my Arizona desert surroundings. I've taken a couple of Hummer adventure tours the two days; Yesterday was the Wilderness Trail, where we saw at old fort constructed by the Perry Mesa Original Indians and went though some rough territory on the Aqua Fria River, and on Tuesday, I went on the Orizaba Gold Mine Tour where we saw an old gold mine, some real live cowboys rounding up their herd in the free range country and saw some Arizona wildlife, Gambill Quail, roadrunner, javelina and a couple of bunnies - cottontail and jack rabbit. It was both fun and educational, if you're out in Arizona and want to go on a fun Hummer Tour, then check out
Thanksgiving, the holiday that began in 1621 with the settling Pilgrims from Plymouth Rock, MA (before there was a Red Sox nation) and the Native Indians of that area. Stories have it, that they all sat down together on a long picnic bench and shared their food which made for a huge feast. That was a peaceful time for giving thanks for our many blessings and sharing with others. May we continue to do this all the year long and may GOD Bless all those less fortunate and also our troops wherever they might lay their heads tonight.
Let us not forgot the true meaning of Thanksgiving, even though the retailers and television producers regard it as entry way to Christmas selling and promotion. Then again, Christmas has lost it's true meaning as well. Bah Humbug!! We'll save that for another Blog Day!
N is the word today and since Nike is so huge in the sports world, let's go with The Nike Brand in Beaverton, Oregon. I like Nike and I love the State of Oregon and the Portland metropolis area; but, I do not agree with Nike climbing back on board with Michael Vick, past torturer of animals. Yes, he paid his debt to society, he has been given another chance by the NFL (National Football League) but for Nike to again start a sponsorship with this guy, No Way! If this happens, guess what I won't be buying anything with that little or big N insigna on it and I'll go to another brand of tennis shoe. Most shoes are created equal today, Nike doesn't hold a secret ingredient for rubber compound or laces that don't come untied, making shoes is not rocket science, perhaps making a tire out of rubber is - ask Michelin, Bridgestone, Goodyear or Yokohama and they will swear it is a science,and I agree as an ex tire man, but not sneakers. So, hello Michael Vick, so long Uncle Rico; I don't think my decision is going to hurt them, but all your decisions may determine what they do in the future.
Cabo Wabo is the Tequila of the Day for Thanksgiving, especially since I'm heading over to Ricky D.'s house for Thanksgiving dinner and a round of golf beforehand. Ricky D. always has a great supply of Cabo Wabo on hand in the blue, gallon plus jug that is as heavy as it is fun to drink from. Cabo Wabo, made famous by Sammy Hagar, the Red Rocker and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - Happy Thanksgiving, Sammy & Chickenfoot!
While we giving thanks, I'd like to thank my Amigos - Sam Rainwater and Mark Mulligan for donating their proceeds from CD sales and performances to the Castaway Kids in the San Carlos, Mexico area. Also, wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to all our Amigos and Neighbors at Bahia Delfin in San Carlos, have fun eating bird on the sea.
