This is the time of the year to give thanks for what we have. History says the Pilgrims started the idea by setting a day aside to give thanks for their safe arrival and beginning a new life in America. But what do you say that Thanksgiving is?
For some, it is a day to watch football or basketball. Others eat too much. Some visit family and friends. There is hunting and fishing on many folks agenda. And a few take time to give thanks.
The Journal hopes you do all of the above, especially take time to give thanks. We’re taking a day off to spend with family. The Journal will not publish on Friday. This Wednesday edition is being put together in Memphis where we are visiting our grandson.
Come Friday afternoon The Journal will be on the road to Ferriday where the Red River Bulldogs will play Ferriday in the next round of the football playoffs. Red River defeated Rosepine last Friday night with an impressive 38-24 come from behind win.
