I'm thankful for......

Well, what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving. Here some of my thoughts
Tom – for the inspirational story, positive attitude, and being a moderator for this herd
Jaxqtr & Squirrell – reminding me that you can eat too few calories
Mr. Beanz – for his ride reports with photos, and experienced view and straight forward responces
Bautieri & txvintage – for some great quotes that make me chuckle
MissBumble – for hosting the biggest loser thread and posting her ride report, we started riding about the same time and I’m impressed with enthusiasm and progress.
The Historian – for making me dream about my own tour
Chipcom – for most disturbing avatar
vbclown - for book recommedation "Where did the fat go"

I’m sure I am missing a few, but it is a start

Thankful somebody used my name in a positive manner!

Thankful for the chance to enjoy the forums with some good people. Even the guys I fight with, you're ok too! Believe it or not, I've met several forum people. Always much different and better in person so I figure there is plenty more! Thankful for the level headed guys that can help steer a bad situation into a good one like Mr. Stormcrowe. For the guys that share their ride experiences and yes, pictures! Thankful for strength, good health and a dern good woman that shares my hobby with me!

Now if I could just get her to smile on camera!

I'm thankful for, among other people and things, the Clyde/Athena Forum and its posters. Who else would offer to take a call from me to walk me through fixing a derailer, or send me a rear wheel when I was nearly stranded in Confluence on my August tour?

Thank you dbikingman for you kind words. I am thankful for
(1) bikeforums.net for rproviding this wonderful forum
(2) Our section of the forum - truly a friendly group. Everyone's posts and stories....My mom was asking me if I would ever meet anyone from the forum. I said Yes. I think in time...some of us shall meet up!! I mean can you see it?? A group ride for us or a fun weekend? I have met BigScott - we arranged to go for a Training ride (Training for me....he was being kind..and I got up one of the steepest hills in our little area with a helping hand from him!) I also met someone else by accident...so it's a great group- and I love all the support!
(3) Grateful for all of the people out there fighting for the freedom I enjoy
(4) Willingness to lose weight this year
(5) Family - All healthy!!
(6) Pumpin amd Sweetpea (The girls - Cats)
(7) Have a good job....
