We’re in Barcelona and it’s Thanksgiving. Well, Thanksgiving in Canada as they don’t celebrate this here in Spain (what with all the conquering and genocide and what-not) and instead of going through the usual boring (but true) things that I’m thankful for – family and health and being able to go on this amazing adventure, having a swell bunch of kids look after my stores for me while I’m gone, my great friends on my hockey team who entrusted me with The Dangler to take around the world, my good peeps who are looking after my house and all of my friends and family who have been supportive of our endeavours – instead of saying all that, I’m going to give thanks for the following…

I’m thankful for being able to spend quality time with the family in various bars.
