Thanksgiving dinner was awesome, I saw a turkey get deep fried, successfully, unlike all the attempts I have seen on YouTube.
Now you know why we're all so fat here. Glad you got a real taste of it before you head home. Pigs are one thing here, Turkeys, quite another.
Cheers mate.

dogtired get to one of the people's places on here that own a huge chunk of land with some old Farm Ponds if you want some quality Bass Fishing. Trolling with lures is too easy. Going out on an old Farm Pond is a much better challenge or going out on a big lake and working Jigs casting to the bank near old trees or rocks and tapping those ole Bass on the nose is so much more of a challenge. Glad you and your riding partner are enjoying your ride around the states.

Dog, you need to come back up for the first annual American-Australian Side Car Ice Racing Challenge! That pond across from my house should do nicely.

Tripps, will there be alcohol involved at some time of the proceedings?

Only for the 1st and 2nd place finishers.

I will need to find a passenger, Mrs Tripps has unexpectedly declined.

Let me know when the races are scheduled, maybe I can talk my sister into lending me her gravy boat rig and a kid to ride shotgun for the day.

A woman of exceptional intelligence and, I'm sure, great beauty.

Certainly, but I suppose we shall have to extend the whiskey to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place finishers.
