Happy Thanksgiving!

As we near the end of the year, I need to stop and thank my family, friends and clients who have made this year, and every other year I have been a Realtor, so memorable.  As you know, I am very passionate about my work as a Realtor and all of you have allowed me to continue that passion.

 

For me, I will be smoking two turkeys which will probably require me getting up long before dawn and firing up my smoker.  For those of you that know me, back yard smoking is something I very much enjoy and my smoker will be chugging away all day!  Smoked turkey is the way to go, in my opinion and if done well will win a taste test against anything your aunt or grandma can bring to the table.

BUT, how about a little history of Thanksgiving here in the good ol' US of A? And what better place to look than the History Channel that has this page dedicated to Thanksgiving:

And, of course for many of us, FOOTBALL rules at least some of the day on Thanksgiving.  Traditionally, the Dallas Cowboys and the Detroit Lions will take on apponents.  This year you can watch 3 games that look like they will be perfect!  The Cowboys will hand the Carolina Panthers their first loss, the  Philly Eagles will be at the Detroit Lions and a great matchup this year will be The Bears vs Green Bay Packers.  Should be great games!  Here is a bit of football Thanksgiving history:

Hope you have a great day and enjoy it with the best people on earth!
