Happy Thanksgiving to My Boot Campers, Family and Friends

Happy Thanksgiving 
to My Boot Campers, Family and Friends!

This is the time of year to be thankful with awareness for all that we have and the people in our lives. On October 3, 1863 President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a legal holiday with the following words:

"The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of
fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly
enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have
been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to
penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever
watchful providence of Almighty God. ..."
