Grateful for

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Grateful for

Postby balzaccom » Mon Nov 23, 2015 9:06 am

This week we celebrate Thanksgiving in the USA, and we thought we'd take just a minute to mention some of the things we are grateful for:

Top among those are our apparent good health, and the fact that we have each other and continue to be in love after 38 years of marriage. We wish all of you the same.

We're also enormously grateful for the fact that we live in a place and time that allows us to enjoy the beauty of nature when and where we would like, with wonderful national parks, forests, and wilderness areas. And we should mention the many people who have joined us in our celebration of the wilderness, from those on these backpacking message forums, to those we have taken along on a hike. We thank you all.

Besides the obvious, grateful for the wonderful community we have here at HST, and especially for the special friendships that some us have developed over the years with other fellow members. In this crazy word of ours, its great to know that their are people who have you back, willing to do anything for you, just as you would be willing for them. :nod:

After having been maried to "saint" Diane for 39 years (she died in 2012) I'm so fortunate to be married for more than a year to "saint" Marilin. One would have to be a "saint" to put up with me and that certainly appliies to Diane. Marilin adores me as I do her and she has to be a "saint" to do that. I am so thankful. No matter what I do my I pad turns the photos up side down.

I'm grateful for music!
