Happy Turkey Day

I am happy and thankful for a number of reasons on this day as I'm sure all of you are and more than likely for many of the same reasons.

We have more than what 90% of the world's population has and that includes many of the "poor" here as well.

Will enjoy another simple day of life with some friends and a bird. May your day be enjoyable and a mention of thankfulness to people met on the internets who have become friends. That is cool!

On another matter here take a look into this bird's eye. He's a meanie and some of these fellows are outta control and raising hell running in gangs and just generally stirring up trouble. They need to be on a plate probably.
Complaints to police about the aggressive and threatening nature of wild turkeys in Brookline, Massachusetts, have doubled over the last month. Residents of the town have had enough of being chased, harried and physically attacked by the birds, which can grow to 20 pounds and 4 feet tall.


  1. Yay...comments are back! That is one mean bird!!! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving, Costa Rica-style!

  3. The idea of bands of marauding turkeys makes me smile. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Thanks everyone! It's time to go see if the bird is in the oven. I do crave turkey at times and not just this time of year.


    Stick a fork in me, cause I am done.

  6. I had to laugh at the thought of people being chased by turkeys. I guess it is pay back. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  7. There is nothing worse than to be chased by a big, mean turkey. Been there done that...hope to never do it again!

    Glad Comments are BACK!
