Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving to all. Remember, it is God whom we have to thank for all our blessings (including our nice foldies).

Indeed. Happy Thanksgiving from a US expat living overseas. The one US holiday I really miss.

Shame it's tainted by the whole association with genocide and all. Just remember to pause a moment and give a thought to all that's been lost in pursuit for all that we have to be thankful for.

Double edged sword.

Yes, we all do ride folding/separating bikes here on this particular forum. I guess that what makes us a family of sorts. I wish we could all dine and really talk in real time together for Thanksgiving. I think this year we have so much to be thankful for-like staying safe for 10 years since the 9/11/01 attacks. Although what a huge table that would be to dine upon!

Why miss out on the celebration? My sister was overseas for some Thanksgivings when she was younger. She told me that many stores and shops stock the traditional food for a Thanksgiving dinner. And yes, she did her Thanksgiving too-by stopping in at a McDonalds one year, or some other crazy thing like that.

I don't dwell on individual's wrongdoings-in this case, harming the Native American population. I only give pause and heartfelt thanks for the opportunities that this country has given my family for around 100 years.

And no, I don't watch football on Thanksgiving. I am too busy running the kitchen to get everything ready.

Easy drive 'over the rivers and through the woods' to the Central WA coast, but it will be rain and high winds for Thanksgiving day - no bike riding here.

Gives me some time to work on the interior of the new shed out back, which has gotten the Pocket 8's out of the bathroom.

Have a great Holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for all of the contributors to this forum, who make folding bikes both intelligible and fascinating at the same time.

However, I am especially thankful for the friendship and bicycle mentorship of Bruce Metras, who introduced me to the magic of Moulton and has saved me from self-induced mechanical calamity more times in the past year than I can count.

I raise a glass of tinto to all of you.
