As probably everyone in this forum knows, no matter where they are in the world (if only due to all of the sales running this week), today is Thanksgiving Day in the US.
In between excessive meals and shopping for deals on watches and straps, I actually do attempt to take part in the reason for the holiday, and in reflecting on Watchuseek in general and f71 (where I've made most of my posts I suspect) specifically, I find I have many reasons to be thankful.
For the personal friends I've made here. Aside from family, there is nothing more important.
For the camaraderie we all share here in a world where normies don't even wear a watch anymore.
For the constant reminder that what's important in a good watch doesn't have to cost a fortune.
For the endless entertainment of a forum which sees more posts in a month than I'd have time in a lifetime to read.
For all that I've learned here, both things arcane and things mundane, and that there is always something new to learn here every day.
For this community constantly fueling my interest to learn about this shared fascination.
And I also give thanks to one and all for turning me on to so many great watches.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all. You have made this my favorite place on the Internet, and I love you all.
