Wednesday Potpourri and an Award

I wish all my friends a Happy Thanksgiving Day in the USA. One of my friends Carolyn has written an outstanding post on a gift given for Thanksgiving. Take the time to read through this one.

Here are some varied photos from the year:
This is a shot at the golf course from the day when my 13 year old grand son beat me golfing. This shot was to 10 foot from the pin. It was over a lake that came up next to the green. I put it at 12 feet and was able to win this hole with the putt. He had me eight down with eight holes to play and I was able to cut it to four down by the end of the round but I was easily defeated. Oh, the agony of defeat with a smile on your face. How can you be disappointed when they play well.
How do you like the form he is showing on this swing. This is his 10 year old cousin, number three grandson, who is learning the game. We road together on the cart and had a good time. He showed me the Cicada in the tree that did a neat job for the camera.
This is Soccer Boy as he cleaned off the deck last week. We had 12" of snow last week.

He works hard and even worked on the railing.

He moved down to the boat and climbed on top and worked on the snow.

That kick cleared a lot of snow. He enjoys fishing and also this fun stuff.

I got an award last week that I'm posting.

Ms. Hays has given my site the "Hot Blog Award" - I thank her so much for visiting my site, and for passing this award to me. I enjoy her site and so the award is an added bonus. She has joined several of the Meme's in which I am contributing.

I pass it along to the following Hot Blogs.

1. Carolyn for her neat bird blog and interesting posts.
2. Betsy for her neat stories of life.
3. Thomas for his neat photographic site from India- a must see to believe.
4. Amila for photogray of the animal life from Sri Lanka - check out this site.
5. Becky for her neat stories.

Fishing Guy,
On this Thanksgiving Day I want to say thank you for being such a faithful blogger friend. It always brightens my day to read your thoughtful comments on my blog.

Enjoyable post you have here, you have much to be thankful for as do I.

We have only received flurries here so far as we are a little too far southeast for lake effect snows to do much else.

Fishing Guy,

Thank you so much for this award. Given the feedback I got when I passed on awards the last time around, I would not be passing this on to any other bloggers. Having said that I will recognize this on my blog. Pl. check out my next post during the weekend for the details.

Thank you once again and happy thanksgiving to you, your family and friends...Thomas

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. :-) I can't get over all that snow, seeing how I only see any if I travel up into the mountains. Can't imagine being that kid having to shovel all that snow. That's a chore I would hate. :-D Snow usually looks like fun. That just looked freezing.
