turkeys, for example...

So I couldn't help but give you a taste of the depictions of turkeys available on the web. I guess I have too much time on my hands (no really I'm supposed to be cleaning out the baby's room--its a mess). I've just shared some classic depictions and the only question that pops into my head is where did we come up with the notion that turkeys have multiple colors of feathers (red, blue, green, yellow, orange, etc)?
Turkey #1= decent looking bird, but definitely not something I'd consider eating. See any brightly colored feathers?
Turkey #2=scrawny, looking bird I'd probably feed my Thanksgiving turkey to. Is that wrong? No brightly colored feathers here...
Turkey #3= fat and juicy and happy as can be--pilgrim hat and all. Riiiight!
Turkey #4= Much less fortunate. Hopefully that stuffing makes for a cozy resting place--forget the casket.
Turkey #5= The happy memories for my child craft idea. Oh wait does his sign say "Eat Cheese". Whoops, sorry guys he's on protest!! Happy Thanksgiving! If you consider this option maybe you should change the sign to say something a little more "politically correct".


  1. i love all of your turks. i just got an email from dolly!!! she is pregnant again!!! can't wait to talk to her:-)

  2. Good News! I ate some of the best turkey I've every had for thanksgiving this year!! Sorry poor turkeys, although you're still quite unattractive. It was perfect! I'll have to get the recipe and share it. It had tons of fresh herbs rubbed and stuffed in it with lemons, and something else. It was delightful! And we cut it in thicker slices so it wasn't stringy like I've always had it.

  3. CONGRATS on the boy! I am excited that we will have boys only a couple of months apart. I hope you are feeling well. Enjoy your freedom now!! :):)
