Message: Thanksgiving tradition for many years was watching the Hollywood Christmas parade on TV while mom prepared the turkey and other fixings the Wednesday before. On Thanksgiving morning the Macy's parade would be on in the background as we cleaned our bedrooms and helped mom and dad before all the relatives and friends would gather around for the feast. Later, it was a time for my HHS buddies to get together from college to play some full court Thursday morning 5 on 5 before heading back to our parents' homes for dinner. Greg Korshavn, Barry Lafferty, and Julio Zambrano were some of the regulars. Feliz Dia de los Pavos to everyone!!
A Happy Turkey Day to you Tom.

Message: HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little brother WADE. and to those Husker Brothers you get one year to boast enjoy! and to everyone have a Great turkey day, Question to ya-all what was your best Thanksgiving?
Hey Kirk, Most memorable Thanksgivings were spent at Dad's house when the kids were young. I remember Dad getting a new stove one year with a self-cleaning oven. He cranked it up to self-clean to get the temperature up, with the Turkey inside and didn't realize that the oven door would lock and the oven had an hour and a half cleaning cycle. There was panic at the Baker house for sure. He got out his tools and had to dismantle his brand new oven to retrieve the bird. My cousin Barbara finished the bird in the microwave. Not exactly the BEST Turkey we ever had but a fun memory nevertheless.

Message: My grandmother used to always remind us to walk down the middle of the aisle at the grocery store so we wouldn't be killed by falling canned goods (she had read in one of the tabloids that it had happened). And her "if you have to ask the price, you probably can't afford it" started to make sense as I got older. Happy Thanksgiving to all in Cougartown - enjoy the turkey, pigskin, and parades!
Thanks Sharon, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Message: John, I think Donna really meant GI, which is pronounced GUY. Like "gi, why can't I go to the beach with my friends". That was used instead of "god". I never did understand it, but I never did understand girls at that time either. And after all these years, I STILL don't understand girls. Any how, I just got back from a weekend with all the remaining members of Monty and the Crystals. Artie, Tom W. Tom O. Timmy A. Frank L. Chuck A. and myself We all brought our instruments and jammed just like old times. It was rough at first, but as the day progressed, we regained our old rhythm and sounded like we never missed a beat in the last 42 years. Thank Linda Wilson for putting it together.
