“Do you see what I see?” asked one of my friends.
“See what you see,” I replied, “Did you read the caption below?”
My friend froze in his tracks as he read, “Come in for your fresh killed turkeys.”
“Do you think that happened to Tom last year and he wound up on someone’s dinner table?”
“That would explain why we haven’t seen him,” I replied, “I thought he just moved.”
As we contemplated our fate a tall shadow appeared over us in the form of a mustachioed butcher with cleaver in hand.
“Run for it” I yelled, as we sprinted back to our home in the woods.
“I used to look forward to this time of year,” another of my friends said, as he tried to catch his breath, “but why do they call it Thanksgiving?”
I replied, “For our sake I hope it is because it is only one day out of the year!”
With this being a year we won’t soon forget, we hope this Thanksgiving will be a time to reflect on the things we can be thankful for and appreciate the friendships and family we have along with the blessings we oftentimes take for granted.
We send our wishes to you and your family for a very Happy Thanksgiving.
-Your Friend the Turkey, Gary and Gail
