I’ll use my first post on this site to honor my Grandfather James Ludeke who passed away last week, August 12th 2010, at the age of 86.
Every Thanksgiving my family would all come to my Grandparent’s ranch on 700 acres of land north of Burkburnett, Texas and south of the Red River. Each Thanksgiving typically would have close to two dozen family members at their house. All of the family members who come are from my dad’s side of the family. My dad is one of six kids so there is always lots of turkey and pecan pie for everyone.
Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I never have to worry about buying gifts for people and worry about them buying me worthless things I don’t need. Plus, there’s family, food, and Cowboys football. What more could a 7th generation Texan ask for?
Thanks to my brother, Charles Ludeke, for the photos above.
The photo below I took on the 18th, the day he passed away. Beautiful.
See you when I get there Gramps.
