Thanksgiving Dinner Comes to Call

My friend Laura snapped this photo of a wild turkey perched on her deck railing recently. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, this hen is taking quite a chance. Maybe she knows that Laura isn't into killing and plucking her own dinner.

I am reminded of  A Turkey for Thanksgiving, a children's book I used to read to my class.

Mr. and Mrs. Moose invite all their animal friends for Thanksgiving dinner and the only one missing is Turkey. When they set out to find him, Turkey is quaking with fear because he doesn't realize that his hosts want him at their table, not on it.
