The turkeys have to come from somewhere, don’t they?  You betcha, and here are two turkey ranches.

We won’t even get into the plucking of the birds, however, someone has to roast them.  Mom.

Moms all over the North American Continent have and will have roasted our Thanksgiving turkeys.

Oops!  That’s a Dad basting the turkey in his Frigidaire wall oven!

    Neat old photos! Mmm, I love turkey!

    If you haven’t seen this site before of a past hotel with a turkey theme, check it out – it’s something else! http://www.lileks.com/institute/motel/ And don’t miss the dining room! http://www.lileks.com/institute/motel/roost/5.html

    Fun pics! Is that a boy or a girl in the hideous red and yellow outfit? Poor kid. Gotta learn me how to make a pie crust like that, sigh.

    Mmm…pumpkin pie…
    Last year I vowed to make pumpkin pies until I perfected it. I didn’t quite get it right, so I better start making pies now, huh?
