Thanksgiving on Saipan

I know that Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time to give thanks for everything you have, but I miss my family in Florida. This is my fourth straight Thanksgiving away from them. The last time we had Thanksgiving together was 2003.

Mom, Alex, Kevin, Catie, and Tiana, I miss you guys!

I have two Thanksgiving invitations. I'm going to try to hit up both of them. Brad, the other half of Guns n Roses, is having a shin dig at his place up in Marpi and then the Kaipats, my second family, are going to be chowing down in Kagman.

EJ is going to be my driver because I don't think my scooter can make it to the other side of the island.

The thing I'm most thankful for this year is that I can make a living doing what I love in a place where it makes a difference for the people that I care about.

Joined the scooter club? Activism or did your jeep never turn up? Go with the white scooter, the 125 (red ones)' are ok, but the bitch seat isn't as comfortable, as the 250, or so says the wife. Actually, she doesn't recognize bitch seat, we just called it "out back" One advantage of the scooter date is easy acsess to back rubs at stop lights.
