Turkey Time is Almost Here!

The Bird
The turkey is still in the fridge thawing. He'll be coming out early in the morning. Then he and I will go at it. It's almost a wrestling match on the counter top. I grab him to get out the giblets inside, and he slides away. Finally, I get him with a half-nelson, and Grandmother makes the count to 10. I win again! I always get my turkey.

Before long he's in the oven. That's tomorrow!

Mandy, Alex, Sylvia will be arriving late this evening. Usually Kevin, Lesley, Kara, and Zachary will come by and we'll have our Thanksgiving Eve fun. We'll get a head start on those pound cakes I am sure!

A bird in the hand is not as good as a bird in the oven.

Quote of the Day

Joke of the Day
Have you ever wondered why foreigners have trouble with the English Language?

Let’s face it
English is a weird language.

There is no egg in the eggplant
No ham in the hamburger
And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple.
English muffins were not invented in England
French fries were not invented in France.

We sometimes take English for granted
But if we examine its paradoxes we find that
Quicksand takes you down slowly
Boxing rings are square
And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

If writers write, how come fingers don’t fing.
If the plural of tooth is teeth
Shouldn’t the plural of phone booth be phone beeth
If the teacher taught,
Why didn’t the preacher praught.

If a vegetarian eats vegetables
What the heck does a humanitarian eat!?
Why do people recite at a play
Yet play at a recital?
Park on driveways and
Drive on parkways

English was invented by people, not computers
And it reflects the creativity of the human race
(Which of course isn’t a race at all)

That is why
When the stars are out they are visible
But when the lights are out they are invisible
And why it is that when I wind up my watch
It starts
But when I wind up this observation,
It ends.
