I think every day is Thanksgiving Day, because every day I give thanks to the world for dealing me such a good hand. I give thanks for my siblings, my nephews, my in-laws, my friends. As a father and grandfather, I am so thankful for my beautiful daughters and for my handsome young grandson Henry, aka DinoBoy.
As an angler I am thankful that I knew the old Upper Dam, and thankful for my cozy camp there.
I am thankful that trout like this still swim in Maine waters, in places of great beauty.
I give thanks for my fishing buddies, the Bro and Trout Boy.
As a citizen of the planet I am thankful that there are still places in the world that look like this, and that I have seen them.
On this Thanksgiving Day I will be giving thanks for family, friendship, the annual embarrassment of abundance on our table, and for all the people who in great and small ways try to make life on Earth better, not for themselves but for everyone. Wishing you a happy and thankful and thoughtful day.
