Thanksgiving 2014

Like everyone, I absolutely enjoy the time off that I have on holidays.  You can bet that I will spend some time in the field and on the water in the next few days.  Unfortunately, I believe it is easy for us to get caught up in the time off and not really think about the reason for it.  It also seems to me that in our pop culture we go right from the decorations and lights of Halloween directly …
