Thanksgiving Day - November 26, 2009
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird of the United States. But it was Thomas Jefferson who opposed him. It is believed that Franklin then named the male turkey as 'tom' to spite Jefferson.
Here's a picture of the turkey that has taken over our yard since last April - and NO, we are not eating him today!
