We'll spend Thanksgiving day at Mom's and then it's off to boondock in the Panamint Valley with a fridge full of leftovers.

We're taking Lucy to Jacksonville tomorrow. We'll be camped in Lucy in SuEllyn's Dad's back yard with full hook-ups. We'll head back to the Panhandle on Friday. Lucy will be staying at her private campground until we go back to Jax for Christmas.

I will be spending Thanksgiving in the AS with the cat in La Grande, OR. One member suggested I got out but Nah.

I have a couple of turkey breasts, some stuffing, Broccoli and a slice of pie. I can't wait to chack out my new grill (early christmas present to myself). It's stainless!

We're spending Thanksgiving in Bryan, TX. The DW is a picture definition of an Aggie, and we'll be going to the A&M-TU game on Friday. Thursday will be spent going on campus to visit the Bon Fire Memorial and the pet cemetary. Being a Texas Tech alum I just can't wait for Thursday.

For those of you who are unaware of Texas A&M traditions, I should explain:

For, I don't know how long, the A&M cadets & student body have held a bon fire before the team played Texas University. It was a big to do. The yell leaders would work the student body into a lather, and then theyd all recite a poem. This is gospel y'all, I couldn't make this up and I have a vivid imagination. The fire would burn for days because of how much wood they had used. Several years ago, while building it, the stack collapsed and several students were killed. The bon fire has been banned as a school sponsored activity, but there has been a private one each year since - except the year following the tragedy.

The school mascot has always been a female Collie and has always been named Revelie. Revelie attends each game to cheer on the team. As the dogs passed away they have been buried just past the end zone, and laid to rest so that they could see the score board. Then the school closed in the end zone for more seating, but the dogs of ages past could not see the score board. So, some alum throws some money at the school and voila, there is a small electronic score board now on the wall of the end zone so the dead dogs can continue to see the score. Each dog's grave is marked with a tombstone, and each game day has a corsage placed on it.

There are a ton more of them, but I'm sure you get the point.

My DW is a third generation Aggie, and was a member of the first graduating class with females. She returned to get her graduate degree. Through her I've seen that these silly traditions are in fact neat, because they instill a binding school spirit that can't be beat and lasts forever. The football team, on the other hand is a whole different story.

Y'all have a wonderful holiday, and give thanks.

We'll be at Gunter Hill COE campground. The plan now is to get one or two of the easy to fix turkey breasts along with the usual vegetables for Thursday and fix some dutch oven chicken over charcoal Friday. Leftovers for Saturday while we watch the Iron Bowl. War Eagle!

A&M BonFire Memorial

My daughter is going to Blinn at Bryan/College Station. We visited the memorial a couple of weeks ago and all I can say is its very moving. It has a pillar for each student killed and each pillar faces their hometown. There is a bronze photo and plaque where family and friends tell about each student. It really brings tears to your eyes. If your in the area, definately go visit it. I am not an Aggie but visiting that school is awesome and made me want to be one, everyone says "howdy" to, another tradition at the school.

It depends on how many family members show up at my house. Too many and I'll be camping in the driveway...

On the ROUTE 66...

... without our A/S, always in FRANCE, so we have decided , this greeting season to find each day, a KOA campground kabin to sleep. We start on dec, the 24th from Flagstaff, Az to Ocklaoma city, in january '08. Between that, We 'll see... May be some good advices for places to visit and to dream ( or to sleep for the better price ).
About cooking... we appreciate light meals as SUBWAY production does.We don't consider christmas and newyear evenings as important moments.

Bruno.

The one, if I have to pick, tradition that really moves me is Muster. Once a year, I can't remember the date, Aggies all over the world will get together. Each one will give the name and class of an Aggie who died during the previous year. I've seen pictures of Muster's being held during wartime. My Father in law, class of '41, has never missed a Muster, he attended one on Guadacanal. His son, class of '69, takes him to muster now. Both are retired Army.

If your daughter has a good GPA when she finnishes at Blinn she can transfer to A&M. It's a great school to have a degree from, and she can knock rings with some really great people.

Thumbs up Yep

I will be camping out at the wildlife refuge just north of Fort Sill. In fact, I have been out there since Friday. Hiking and photography. I will most likely smoke the thickest pork chop I can find, maybe bake some bread. Looks like a few more days of nice weather before it cools off and gets wet.

We will be spending Thanksgiving camping in Bisbee AZ at the Shady Dell. We are likely going to roast a chicken and have all of the trimmings. We are looking forward to the long weekend with the AS.
