This weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving. I realize that is a hard concept for those south of the 49th parallel, but for those that embrace a more North American approach, you can have turkey in Oct and then again in late November if you plan your family gatherings properly!
We had a big dinner on the Friesen side of the family last night. Lots of laughs, ping-pong and of course Chris was never far from our thoughts.
During the latter part of dinner we Skyped Steve and Meggan in South Carolina. I know many families are doing this regularly, but I still love the concept of passing a wireless connected laptop (a Mac of course) around the table and for the next 45 minutes of the call it was if the miles were erased. They had a conversation with each of the 20 people present and it felt like the family was more complete!
With the passing of Steve Jobs this past week, I began to wonder last night if he would continue his amazing technology push on the other side of our human existence. Could we maybe Skype to heaven in the future? I know it sounds crazy, but I’m only half joking. If anyone can do it, it will be Steve Jobs…and when he does, I hope that Chris has signed up to be a beta tester.
Have a great week.

I love your sense of humour Randy, happy thanksgiving
With all the Apple product Chris had, I’m sure those two will have some sort of connection. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Elaine!
