My wife and I will be hitting Highway-52 tomorrow to travel up to the Cities to be with our family for Thanksgiving dinner. And, of course, we're not alone. The week of Thanksgiving is one of the busiest weeks when it comes to people travelling across the highways and byways of our great country to be with relatives they haven't seen in forever and get together for a big meal. But what if you don't really WANT to be with your relatives this Thanksgiving?
Ah, yes. Thanksgiving. The unofficial start to the Holiday Season. I used to work at a radio station back in Wisconsin that would start playing all-Christmas music the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Hearing all those Christmas songs usually did put me in the holiday spirit, but I often wondered why there weren't at least a couple of songs written specifically about Thanksgiving. Fortunately, Jimmy Kimmel noted the same thing-- and he did something about it.
I have three stinky brothers and an even stinkier father! Every year, as we gather around the table, you are guaranteed to lose your appetite at one point because of their uncontrollable gas... UNTIL NOW!!!
This weekend, there are a few things you have to put on your "must do" list. Get to the Booker mini 'Last Time Around' fundraiser on Friday night at the Mayo Civic Center, do the 'Gobble Wobble' 5K race on Thanksgiving morning for the Salvation Army AND make it to the 'Festival of Trees' at Mayo Civic Center's Exhibit hall
Tickets to Country Jam 2015 will make a great Christmas gift ... for yourself! OK, bring along a friend or significant other to experience one of the best music and camping festivals around. After all, you're going to need someone to take selfies with.
