For many of us Thanksgiving has been a time for family and friends to enjoy each other’s company and give thanks for the many blessings we have received throughout the year. We are especially thankful for all of you. We are thankful for your interest and support.
Everyday we are focused on the exhaust side of performance. We look forward to Thanksgiving when we get to focus on the INTAKE. Yep, gorging our throttle body with heavyweight fuel. The mashed potatoes travel down the polished ports and meats with the stuffing in the combustion chamber. (pun intended) Well, we don’t have to get into what happens next.
During break this week we sat around and talked about our favorite and worse Thanksgiving memories. One of our team member’s and his sister spent Thanksgiving in the Emergency Waiting Room while their mom had an emergency colonectomy. The previous year she fell and broke her wrist, so let’s just say she get’s kinda sketchy around Thanksgiving.
Quickly changing the subject a bit, Vince is looking forward to this year’s Thanksgiving, they are cooking a prime rib, his favorite. Another teammate joins in as a traditionalist with a roasted turkey. Then there’s always that guy, who must drop their turkey in the deep fryer. It still sounds weird to me, but I have tried it and it was some of the best Turkey I have ever had.
Another one of our team members had a particularly weird Thanksgiving. His mother-in-law who was to bring the pumpkin pie brought an Avocado pie instead and his grandmother made a Kahlua pie instead of pecan. Thanksgiving turned into a Tiki Party for dessert.
Most likely your family is like mine and some are watching the TV oblivious to the others who are looking through sales papers or online for the best sales around and of course there are the cooks in the kitchen. Fortunately, in my family the cooks are working together instead of bickering.
With our bellies full we still have a few days to get things done. Some go get their tree on Friday at the local parking lot, others go out a bit and actually cut their tree down in a farm, and others crawl up in the dusty attic and drag it down the hatch and start putting it together.
All in all, we are sincerely thankful for our families, friends, and customers. Without all of you we wouldn’t be able to do what we love. Have a blessed holiday season.
We'd love to hear about your Holidays:
Have you had any accidents around the holidays? What is your favorite main course? What deserts do you have at Thanksgiving? What’s it like at your place? Where do you get your tree? What are you thankful for?
