november is my favorite month of the year. of course most ppl think of thanksgiving, and thats great and all but...... i dont really care what the settlers stole from the indians a couple a few hundred years ago. its nice to eat all that food though. what i like about november is veteran's day (11th) and even more importantly the united states marine corps birthday (10th). i wish i could still go to the balls we ued to have in vegas. a group of the guys i served with allways come down and visit for that weekend. we buy the absolute biggest most expensive cuts of beef we can find, as much beer as we can carry, and one bottle of jack daniel's single barrel sippin whiskey. our wives/gf's all know that it is our weekend. we mostly just sit around and tell dirty jokes, and occasionally lie to each other. but as far as holliday's go, it is my favorite. of course there are other good things about nov. too. like the opening of gun season (deer) down here in alabama. not to mention that blazin' heat is about gone by now. although i think it is close to 85 right now. plus college football is getting intense. rivalry week is right around the corner. the pro's are getting closer and closer to thier division show downs as well. (go dolphins you can do it.) this is the time of year that i will get off of work, go home, and rake leaves till dark. then i light a big ol fire in the back by the woods and watch her burn. i think beer has a different flavor in november? seems like it to me anyway. the only downside to nov. is that the fishin has seriously slowed by thanksgiving. but even that is good because it makes you anticipate spring a lil more. what are some of yalls favorite months and why? j.d.
