THANKSGIVING DAY GRATITUDE!

Thanksgiving Day is around the corner. That Holiday has always been very special for me. It’s a good time for reflection, for appreciation for what you have and time to say THANK YOU for the things that you love. Here are a few things that I’m thankful for this Holiday Season:

THANK YOU FOR WINTER:

Without the cold Canadian winters, there would be no snow. Without snow there would have been no outdoor rinks. Without outdoor rinks, there would be no HOCKEY!

THANK YOU FOR WATER:

Without water, there would be no ICE. Without ice we couldn’t skate. If we can’t skate, there would be no HOCKEY!

THANK YOU FOR TREES:

Without trees, there would be NO WOOD. Without wood there would be no HOCKEY STICKS. (Titanium and composite didn’t exist in early 1900. Although they did have one piece sticks) Without sticks we couldn’t shoot the pucks. Therefore there would be no HOCKEY!

THANK YOU FOR RUBBER:

Without rubber there would be no PUCKS!  Without pucks we would have nothing to score with. Therefore there would be no HOCKEY! (Otherwise, we might be playing hockey with “cow turd”…)

THANK YOU FOR IRON ORE

Without iron, there would be no BLADES FOR SKATES. Without blades, we would have no skates. Therefore there would be no HOCKEY!

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING ELSE…

Of course I’m thankful for all the other things in my life like family, health, friends and all that stuff…

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

    THANK YOU FOR FEMALES.

    Without woman there would be NO GROUPIES. Without groupies the visiting team would stop traveling to far away cities. Therefore, there would be no HOCKEY.
