Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Nov 22, 2011
With Thanksgiving coming up in a couple of days, I wanted to take the time to say what I am thankful for:
- My wife of 29 years, Patty Neiffer, for putting up with me for all of these years and for some reason still in love with me.
- My four sons, Garrett - 24, Grant -23, Gannon - 20 and Gage - 18 for thinking their dad is still fairly smart. Three of my sons plan on being CPAs like their old man and I look forward to discussing taxes with them (most likely on the golf course).
- My CPA career. I am voracious reader and this career has allowed me to enjoy keeping my mind active and involved. Many people ask me how can you enjoy doing taxes and I try to tell them it is like putting a puzzle together. If I can take the pieces of their income tax situation for the year and properly put it together in their favor, we create a nice finished product.
- Our readers on this blog. We started this blog almost three years ago and I am estimating that well over 100 of our readers have sent us emails with tax and other farm related questions and it has been a pleasure reading and replying to those questions. Also, many of the readers I have met over this time and I have really enjoyed this part of the blog. I especially enjoyed getting teased about "driving a combine".
Again, I want to wish everybody a very Happy Thanksgiving and we are looking forward to the holiday season.
