Give Us The Bird...Day Four...Thanksgiving Turkey

Hey Everyone!
Wow, it's finally Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and I'm celebrating it for the 4th day of
Give Us The Bird!

Without further come the Gobblers!

Why does the turkey cross the road?  
(Insert your own punchline here.)

Look!  It's a turkey explosion in my yard! 
They're right out front, across from Mom's Subaru.

Showing off that famous tail fan.
He's strutting in my side yard and looking for cute chicks!

Are you ready for your close up?

Well, sometimes a gobbler gets too close and Dad has to bash 'em!
Turkey season on my hill!

 And after Dad bashes one of them, they cook in a pot like this!
You can almost smell it through your Mr Dell!

And here's the result! Cooked, fresh, wild turkey.
Mom cooks it up in the crockpot and the result is delish.
Excellent for turkey noodle soup and
even better for turkey salad.
If you think chicken salad is good, you should try this!

Boy, I suppose this is a morbid way to end today's post, but that's sorta the theme to Thanksgiving.  At least for the turkey.   BWAR HAR HAR.  Here's a funny to lighten that mood...If your peeps are oven-roasting your turkey, be sure they remember to:

If your pack celebrates Thanksgiving, I'm wishing a very happy celebration to you all and I hope you get lots of table scraps...that's okay on a holiday, right?!?  Tune back in tomorrow for my Bobwhite and Big Birdie post.

BTW:  Don't forget about Ronnii, Ujio & Izzy's big upcoming party for new Blogvilleites!  You don't want to miss it.  Go to the Blogville Community Calendar for the details.  I sure hope I see all of you there!

Grr and Properly Stuffed Woof,
Sarge, COP

Wow Sarge, that was a morbid end. Mum always says if she had to kill what she eats she'd be vegetarian for sure. She'd make the world's worst farmer.

Hope you all enjoy the dish butt!

Tail Wuggles, Rubie

We thought those turkeys were a bit silly strutting around your yard!!!

We would have loved to chase them...guess THEY wouldn't let you out.

Enjoy your bird.
