We have so much to be thankful for, why do we only have one day in the year designated for being thankful? I try to be thankful every day, not just one!
Today I am thankful for a loving God, and his forgiveness of our sins, and for a country in which we are free to worship Him as we see fit. I am thankful for a loving family...
I am thankful for very nice weather, as it has given us time to get a lot of outside work finished up before Winter... (We have been spending the past couple of days working in the shop, as we are building a wall and insulating the front half so we can keep it heated in the winter...)
I am thankful that the car I have been working on is almost done, and seams to be working well! I will be taking it for a drive tomorrow... :-)
There are so many things to be thankful for, how can anybody be a grouch? Mom and Dad are currently watching "Pollyanna", one of our favorite movies, and also probably the most appropriate Thanksgiving movie we have...
For those of you who may be wondering what those pictures at the end of my last post were, here is another picture that should pretty well explain it:
Kind of a long story, but I will try to shorten it as much as possible: I was at the junkyard in Mandan the other day, getting some parts for my Dodge Intrepid, and saw this car sitting out front. I asked how much they wanted for it, but didn't really think about it too much as I had other things on my mind... The next day or two I just couldn't get it out of the back of my mind, so I decided to go up and take another look at it, and ended up bringing it back home with me...
It's an '08 Dodge Charger, that used to belong to the McHenry county sheriff's department, until one of the officers ran over some large obstacle while following a suspect in some less than desirable driving conditions... The car consequently needs a new engine, engine mounting frame, radiator, radiator mounting brackets, A/C condenser, and I'm not even sure what all else... I haven't really had time to tear into it too much, as I have spent all of my spare time fixing up the Intrepid. :-)
That's all for now -- Remember to be thankful!
