Well ... thank you for the Thanksgiving greeting ,, neighbors !!

An answer to Mark's question might bring on political comments ... so I won't go there!  But in other ways we are grateful for many things ... some of us actually like the snow ... when it comes.  (Last winter it waited until mid March to show up.)

But for the great weather we had here yesterday ... everyone would be thankful.  My wife and I went for a little drive and ended up at Oak Island and were thankful to find the interpretative center was still open.

If you follow the television series on History Channel, The Mystery of Oak Island, the next season will begin in mid-November.  There has been lots of activity this summer on the island.  One of the trailers for this season's programs shows that some gold has been found.

Here are a few of pictures from the foggy day in July that we went on the tour of the island.  The Old War Room, The New War room , the money pit area, and the coffer dam to beat all at Smith's Cove.

Thanksgiving or Thanksgiving Day is an annual Canadian holiday, occurring on the second Monday in October, which celebrates the harvest and other blessings of the past year.  Thanksgiving has been officially celebrated as an annual holiday in Canada since November 6, 1879.  While the date varied by year and was not fixed, it was commonly the third Monday in October.  On January 31, 1957, the Governor General of Canada Vincent Massey issued a proclamation stating: "A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed to be observed on the second Monday in October."

I'd guess their biggest harvests, owning to their more northern latitude, come earlier than those in the States, so their Thanksgiving coming before the States' makes sense.
