I can't believe it is the last weekend of May, and I agree the nice weather and the start of summer is bringing out some more positive vibes. I almost feel as though I am coming out of hibernation!

I'm with you. I've seen "officials" say how they think kids should just do school from home from on now. I can't imagine not having had the school experience. It's sad. I hope once there is a vaccine (hopefully) that they will not question the need for kids in school.
The next state over will start class either online or in person August 31. The students usually start the week after Labor Day holiday. I wonder if this will be a new trend for a lot of schooling in my area and surrounding states. Change is not always bad.

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 179 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 154 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 93 DAYS


Happy Farewell to May! Oh yeah today is a MILESTONE for us as we bid farewell to May. And that means TOMORROW is another milestone because we welcome in June. Geez. This has been such an awesome month I hate to see it go but 3 things I don't hate to see are the following countdowns: 179 to Thanksgiving, 154 to November, and 93 to The Bers. That's 3 things I always love seeing on a daily basis. And those counts continue to drop as we say goodbye to this wonderful month of May. It really is a great month for Thanksgiving fans and all the great milestones we saw this month. Another beautiful day predicted with even a taste of Autumn tonight with temps dropping into the 40s. Wow. We won't see much of that over the next 3 months. Tomorrow folks we start that 3 month long summer stretch that takes us directly back to the Bers. That is what stands between us and being in The Bers. Take a deep breath and let's enjoy the summer ride. Have a great Farewell to May!​

May really is full of great milestones, and I am glad to know that I have 3 months to enjoy as the numbers continue to shrink. June and July always seem to fly by, and August is usually a blur and then our reward... back to the Bers!!!!

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 178 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 153 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 92 DAYS


Happy Welcome June! It's about as nice of a day as you can get for any day of the year. The next 3 months are the hot summer stretch. That's what this time of year is and sets up our eventual return "home" to the Bers. Happy Milestone Day as we reach the 7th month since November! Wow. Our counts this morning look like the following: 178 to Thanksgiving, 153 to November and 92 to The Bers. So what's our next milestone after today you ask? Well it's already in 3 days when we reach the 150 day marker to November. Halfway between 300 and 200 to the best month of the year? Is that possible? It is on Thursday and we'll celebrate it with a special poll as we do every other week. I love Thursdays. Don't you? But it's Monday. I like Mondays especially when it's this nice outside. Ok well this is it let's embark on the 3 month summer journey back to The Bers. It's been a strange spring that's for sure. Let's hope summer is great for all of us. Have a great Welcome June!​

Both yesterday and today here we had gorgeous fall-like weather. Tonight is the end of it. Upper 40's for the low, and i think we won't see weather like this again for 3 months, barring a weird cold day here and there. Makes me wish for Fall / Thanksgiving even more!

I'm starting my "climb" now towards the best part of the year, the bers! For me after July 4th i consider it downhill. I spent pretty much all of August getting so freaking exciting because by that point, most of your stores have Fall, Halloween, and even Christmas stuff out by that point. I remember last year in late August being so excited at Costco when i finally found "Holiday Blend" coffee again. Speaking of that, I am on my final case of it now, and anticipate running out sometime in late July. So i only have to go around a month or so without it, if my calculations are accurate!

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 177 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 152 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 91 DAYS


Happy Joining June! We have joined it since yesterday and today is day 2 of the 3-month summer stretch. I love it. And I love this even more. We have 177 days left until Thanksgiving. We have 152 days left until November. We have 91 days left until The Bers. Yep there's a lot of love for those 3 countdowns in this thread. On Thursday we will reach the 150 day marker to November. Celebration time here again as the markers keep happening. That will be huge. And we'll have a bi-weekly poll here to celebrate it as well. Anyone seeing any turkeys around or they hiding out for the summer now? I keep seeing a lot of other animals around but no turkeys lately. I keep watching up-to date news on sports to see where the NFL winds up for the fall. I always look forward to it. Everything feels like a movie we're living in and we're not sure where it's going to take us but one place I hope it takes us is to Thanksgiving Day :). Have a great Joining June!​

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 176 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 151 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 90 DAYS


Happy June Mid-Week! The sun is shining this morning and I'm glad about that. Just sitting here eating a couple of tangerines enjoying my cool room watching a cartoon. Sounds like the life of a kid. Well I am a kid. We all are. Anyone who loves the holidays as much as we do have the kid alive and well in us. And these counts bring it out in us even more: 176 days till Thanksgiving, 151 days till November, and 90 days till The Bers. Woohoo. Tomorrow people will be a milestone as we reach the 150 day marker to November. That's hugggggggge! I remember November like it was yesterday. And to celebrate I will throw in a good poll for you all about Thanksgiving. Keeping that going right through this countdown. Anyone hearing any good news? Because there's enough bad news out there these days. I am hearing good stuff about the possibility of a football season happening, and the corona virus cases/percentages significantly dropping. Hope those trends continue. Have a great June Mid-Week!​

If you like college football (I do!) then here's some good news.

Yahoo Sports reported last week that the NCAA Division I football oversight committee was leaning toward a six-week preseason camp, about two weeks longer than the normal beginning to the season. NCAA approval could come the middle of this month, according to Yahoo.

The COVID-19-forced cancellation of most spring football practices and on-campus workouts has forced significant adjustments in the schedule.

A few games are scheduled to start August 29th.

A month ago I was hearing how doubtful it will be to have college football this year. And I heard that about school too but now I'm starting to hear that kids may be going back in September (personally I feel they need to). Maybe our Bers/Autumn won't be too far from normal.

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 175 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 150 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 89 DAYS


Happy 1 Month till Independence Day! Well we don't count down to that here in this thread or we'd be in trouble being only 1 month away. Fortunately, we have more time than that for our counts. Let's look at them: 175 days till Thanksgiving, 150 days till November and 89 days till The Bers. WOW! We made it to another milestone today and it is the 150 day marker till November. Halfway between 200 and 100. And since it's Thursday let me give you the weekly count to Thanksgiving which stands at 25 weeks now. Less than halfway to go. And since it's Thursday and it's every "other" week time for a Thanksgiving poll. Please see below to celebrate the 150 day marker to November a special poll below:
As a whole, put the following Bers months in order of your favorite to least favorite.
A.) September
B.) October
C.) November
D.) December
I think that I may have made this too difficult today but I wanted to try a Thanksgiving related poll (with November involved). This is so hard for me. But here goes nothing. For me? OVERALL (taking everything into account) I would say my favorite to least favorite months are the following: B, C, D, A

The reason that I put October first is for 2 reasons. 1.) I'm a HUGE Halloween fan. 2.) Because while enjoying the month of October that I love so much I still have November/December ahead of me. It's very close though as any of the last 3 months I could easily put first, second or third. How about you? Have a great 1 Month till Independence Day!​

Well, that's a tough one....

My LEAST favorite is September. That one is easy....

Love each one for different things...but I guess I would have to go D,C,B,A. To be honest, there isn't a time of the year I like more than from the Saturday before Thanksgiving until the end of November more....It is just that kickoff to the best time of year.
