    Much happiness to all of you, too.
    I shall not be eating at Alice's Restaurant tomorrow.
    But I will enjoy turkey elsewhere.
    I think we all should be thankful for what we have. No matter how little we have, there is always someone with less.

    Can't say I've heard that song but I'm not yet in my 40s. Happy Thanksgiving folks. I'll be riding to a couple houses tomorrow!

I had no idea what they were until getting up close. "Holy crap -- turkeys can fly!"

    Unfortunately, the neighborhood kids used to buzz them with their bikes and since they are territorial birds, a few kids got attacked. Serves the little delinquents right!

    A few weeks later, there were a bunch of uniformed people around (not local cops) wandering in MY backyard on a Sunday afternoon collecting the birds.

    "Where are you taking them?"
    "Plimoth Plantation."
    "Yeah right, you're full of (four letter word that rhymes with baloney)."

    Next day, I read they were taken someplace to a rural area in Walpole, MA. They've been gone since -- maybe ten years. I miss the little guys. I worked on the car in the backyard for an entire day and they came and went as they pleased, very close. We had an interesting conversation and they kinda liked Kathy Mattea on the CD player.
    When I used to circulate around in helos, flying over a turkey farm was not allowed as they were said to sort of "go crazy" from the noise above.Small minds operating under stress?
    The wild version lives all around me & yes they fly very well, often seen roosting high in the trees. Their eggs are on the ground where they eat & frolic about acting like roto-tillers in the leaves.

    To that I'll add a reminder not only to give thanks on this day for all your blessings, but to also remember that gratitude is one quality that enhances life throughout the year. Your blessings are the same on the other 364 days of the year, as they are today. Remember to say thank you often! I say it out loud as often as I can.
    Take care guys-n-gals.
    Be well, be safe.
    Give thanks.
    Tom

    PS:
    +1 on "toilets that flush". That was awesome! Guess the perspective is the same from young kids as it is from much later in life, eh? Ha ha.

    Most of us have a lot for which to be thankful.

    Best you and yours on this day of celebrating and reflecting.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.
