As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!

Well, Thanksgiving is just a week away. Every year about this time I remember one of the funniest episodes of any television show in history. Of course, I am referring to the WKRP in Cinncinati’s Turkey Drop and I still laugh every time I see it.

Turkey Drop

It’s a helicopter, and it’s coming this way. It’s flying something behind it, I can’t quite make it out, it’s a large banner and it says, uh – Happy… Thaaaaanksss… giving! … From … W … K … R… P!! No parachutes yet. Can’t be skydivers… I can’t tell just yet what they are, but – Oh my God, Johnny, they’re turkeys!! Johnny, can you get this? Oh, they’re plunging to the earth right in front of our eyes! One just went through the windshield of a parked car! Oh, the humanity! The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! Not since the Hindenburg tragedy has there been anything like this! – Les Nessman

Anyway, since this is primarily a professional blog, I thought I would list those things I am thankful for in regards to my career.

  • I’m thankful that I made the move to Dallas, and have found myself in a challenging work environment which motivated me to take my skills to a new level.
  • I’m thankful to certain folks at Made2Manage who made it possible for me to find this job, even though I have been hard on them at times over the past decade.
  • I’m thankful to Brent Ozar and Jeff Atwood for encouraging me to start my own blog.
  • I’m thankful that I work with El Jeffe and The Nuff, who are the best team members I have ever had.
  • I’m thankful for the hard working and helpful SQL experts at SQL Team and SQLServerPedia as they have made learning SQL so much easier.
  • I’m thankful that Made2Manage has not outsourced their support, and I hope they never do.

So, what are you thankful for?
