On a personal note, neither of my kids could come home for Thanksgiving due to work obligations, but both are attempting to recreate our traditional family dinner using my recipes for the first time. I will update you on how that goes. 

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Don't forget to make some Crumbobblious Cutlets and Gosky Patties to go with that Amblongus Pie.

Happy Thanksgiving Miss C!

Enjoy your thanksgiving. Nice that your kids are carrying on - or at least attempting :) First time on your own with these events can be an adventure.

Native Americas have served the country well, even though they were absolutely crapped on before they enlisted and after they mustered out.  My own locale can point with pride to Mitchell Red Cloud, Jr. of what was then called the Winnebago tribe (they have since set aside that designation in favor of the traditional Ho-Chunk).  Born in Jackson County near Black River Falls, WI, he served with honor as a USMC sergeant in WWII, then re-enlisted in the US Army during the Korean police action.  He was KIA in November 1950, and was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

There are several parks and other sites, both public and military, named in his honor, as well as the USNS Red Cloud, a Watson-class cargo vessel launched in 1999. There is also a memorial to him located on the Ho-Chunk reservation outside of Black River Falls...   in the parking lot of one of the band's casino properties.  Somehow, I think he deserves better than that, but I can't deny that more people probably see it as they make their way inside than they would if it were located on more traditional tribal lands.
