This year since we will not snowbird fly aka depart until January, I pulled out my small collection of ceramic and glass turkeys and other decor. I am still pondering whether or not to participate in the annual Thanksgiving day 5 K turkey trot run or walk across the river in La Crosse; I guess it will depend on the weather..it is an early AM event and 8:00AM can be chilly. The event's orange t shirts are quite cute and reward is a 5 inch pumpkin pie at the end; the last 5 k Jerry and I did was in 2007 in the hills of La Crescent during Applefest, this route is flat. We shall see.

And a few select turkeys beginning with the pair of salt and peppers that are the oldest, from Jerry's late Aunt Marie; faded, paint wearing demonstrating the long years of prior use including a chip on one side of one.
