I wanted to create a thread where folks could express thanks for the Thanksgiving time of year.

I am very thankful to have each and every person on this forum who is interested to participate in all the subjects related to Las Vegas and gambling.

I would love to hear from others who are thankful and what they are thankful for.

I am thankful to the BJ gods for a much better year than last. Two really sub-par years in a row would have been demoralizing.

I am thankful for my life, the freedom of self employment and doing something I enjoy for a living (too many folks hate their jobs/careers), and most of all thankful for my family and friends that think enough of me to want to share in each others life.

I have been legally attached (married) for a little over a year and I am still not sick of my spouse/partner. :) He is my best friend and I feel so lucky to share life's experience with him.

My younger brother came back into my life several years ago and moved in with me two years ago and it has been really fun and enjoyable sharing life with him as well. My Mother divorced her husband this year and relocated to Las Vegas and lives nearby in a nice community and we have spent the last 6 months getting to know each other again and rebuilding our relationship after nearly 15 years estranged.

It's been a great year and I have a wonderful life and am most grateful to whoever up there is looking out for me.

Thanx for the thread Ahigh and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

I'm thankful the casino is open tomorrow
and I don't have to pretend it's another
holiday I could care less about. I think I
used to like them but now they're just a
pain in the ass. There are good prices at
the grocery store on certain things, though.

They had #3 bags of onions on sale, buy
10 bags for $10 get the 11th free, so I bought 33
bags and hung them in my basement which
is same conditions as a root seller. I love
onions and cook them every day.

Thanks to this website, I learned that in order to become a successful gambler first you have to become a successful divorce lawyer.

Really!?!? 33 bags of onions hanging in your basement is what you are most thankful for?

If one knew nothing else of EvenBob, hadn't read a single one of the other 18,848 posts, this is a perfect synopsis of what we all have come to know as EvenBob. :/

I am thankful you are a member of this site. You amuse me. Happy thanksgiving anyway. :)

And the 150 cans of green beans I got 3/$1.
A well stocked pantry is all you need.

Why are so many of your posts slams at Ace?
It's very annoying.

Or maybe just vodka. Being Armageddon, might as well just drink.
