    Turkeys That Moo

    BEING THANKFUL
    Beef Is Beautiful
    a metaphorical turkey
    WALLPAPER:  ROAST BEAST
    -------
    .. We have had another light dusting of snow on the ground. It's almost enough to satisfy the folks in the ski camp: not quite. The sled heads just power through the gravel and speed up to the mountains.
    .. Catching down the canyon on the Gallatin River is still excellent. Small streamers, large nymphs and, in the evening something stripped wildly on the surface near the bank will all bend a rod.
    .. We are thankful for the local rivers: neighbors, friends, and the ability to reject turkey for a chunk of beef. Around here we call it a turkey and gobble it down.
    .. Soon there will be more snow and the opening day of Yellowstone National Park. Then thundering hoards of visitors will arrive - just in time for Christmas. For that we're thankful.
    .. Take five and remember this is the season for a bit of joy and some exceptional fishing.
    .. Now for the grub!
