We truly appreciate your referrals. They are the greatest compliment we can get. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It doesn’t have all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, but you still get to enjoy most of the benefits. Don’t get me wrong, seeing your kids on Christmas morning is tough to beat. But with all the hectic shopping in December, it’s nice to have a holiday about gratitude where you can kick back, eat some delicious food, watch some football, and enjoy the company of loved ones. The only work on Thanksgiving happens in the kitchen. In our case, we do two turkeys: one in the oven and one in the deep fryer. The latter is one of my favorite foods in the world, so I usually have a hand in preparing it. After the bird is thawed, we enrich its flavor with the best marinades and seasonings. I prefer to make it spicy, but others are more sensitive, so I keep it pretty mild. We inject it with juices, butter, and different seasonings, and then put a dry rub on the outside. When the prep is done, we slowly, carefully lower the turkey into the deep fryer. It’s a hazard for people who don’t know what they’re doing, but as long as you do your research and talk to people who have done it before, you shouldn’t have any trouble. We’ve never had a problem. Thirty or so minutes in the fryer (as opposed to hours in the oven) and out comes the most delicious meat you’ve ever tasted. It’s crisp on the outside with tender, juicy meat that falls off the bone on the inside. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. We complement the savory meal with the best desserts: pumpkin pies, pumpkin logs, and more. Besides the food, the holiday is made special by the people we spend it with and the beautiful location. Our family has a camp in Ohio we all go to, and just about everyone shows up. If the weather’s warm enough, we’ll have a little football game or skeet shoot in the morning. There’s also a pond nearby that’s nice for fishing. But if it’s too cold, we don’t complain much CAMP THANKSGIVING AT OUR CABIN IN OHIO, THE HOLIDAY IS ALL ABOUT FAMILY

because there are plenty of games to play inside. It always ends up being boys against girls, and we get pretty competitive. Of course, the turkey usually soothes our combative spirits. And the feast is often followed by napping. Thanksgiving highlights an important truth: Nothing is more important than family. With that, I’m grateful to have family who make getting together a priority. People have so much going on, and they have to travel from many different places, but they always make an effort to be there. They say 90 percent of life is showing up, and I’d say family is the same way. I’m also grateful this time of year for my kids and wife. I try to spend time with them throughout the year, but on holidays, we’re able to slow down and really enjoy each other’s company. Speaking of spending time together, I’m thankful to have an incredible staff at work. Co-workers spend as much time together as they do with anyone else in their lives. It means a lot to be with such positive, team- oriented people who provide such a nice atmosphere. Lastly, I’m grateful for our wonderful patients. I’m grateful that you trust us with your health and healing. Some of you have even referred us to your family, and I can think of no greater compliment than that.
