Sunday Smiles


ODE TO THE THANKSGIVING TURKEY
The turkey shot out of the oven, And rocketed into the air. It knocked every plate off the table, And partly demolished a chair.
It ricocheted into a corner, And burst with a deafening boom. Then splattered all over the kitchen, Completely obscuring the room.
It stuck to the walls and the windows. It totally coated the floor. There was turkey attached to the ceiling, Where there'd never been turkey before.
It blanketed every appliance. It smeared every saucer and bowl. there wasn't a way I could stop it. That turkey was out of control!
I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure, And thought with chagrin as I mopped, That I'd never again stuff a turkey With popcorn that hadn't been popped.

Densie,

I am laughing my head off. I can see this happening. I am one of those blondes who baked my first turkey with the giblets still wrapped in paper and inside the neck of the turkey.

Wonderfully funny!! Love you my friend, Be blessed today.

I used to love a movie called, Money Pit. In it they had a scene of a flying turkey. I think it landed in a tub and then the little red button popped out. Tom Hanks was hilarious.
This was funny too. Turkeys! I don't think I will try this recipe. :)
