Those Ancestors!Thanksgiving - happy turkey!

The Taylor's were proud of their family tradition. Their ancestors had travelled to America with the Pilgrim Fathers on the Mayflower. They had included Congressmen, successful entrepreneurs, famous sports people and television stars. 

They decided to research and write a family history, something for their children and grandchildren. They found a specialist genealogist and writer to help them.  Only one problem arose - how to handle Great Uncle Jefferson Taylor who was executed in the electric chair. 

The writer said she could handle the story tactfully. When the book appeared the section about Jefferson read:

Great Uncle Jefferson Taylor occupied a chair of applied electronics at an important government institution, he was attached to his position by the strongest of ties, and his death came as a great shock.Jokes for Tuesday

The Turkey - A most difficult bird to cook

Louise was away from home on Thanksgiving Day for the first time and she was missing her home and family desperately. Louise decided to cook a turkey herself, just like her Mum used to, so that she could feel closer to her family.

Louise returned home for the celebrations and recounted her experience to her Mum saying, 'Mum. it was so difficult to eat the turkey.'

'Why was that, dear' asked Mum in a concerned way, 'was it not cooked properly?'

'How would I know?' responded Louise, 'it wouldn't sit still.'

Abraham Lincoln Sets November Thanksgiving Day

Sarah Hale, a magazine editor, campaigned tirelessly for a national Thanksgiving day.  Hale wrote in Godey's Lady's Book, eventually Sarah's idea caught the president's eye and in 1863, President Lincoln proclaimed the idea of November Thanksgiving, to be precise, that last Thursday in November would be a national day of Thanksgiving.

In Canada they set Thanksgiving Day on the second Monday in October.  Here it was Martin Frobisher who in Newfoundland first gave thanks for surviving his explorations in 1578.  Other countries who celebrate Thanksgiving include Argentina and Brazil.  Japan has a national holiday on 23rd November to celebrate Labour / Thanksgiving day.

Turkey Shoot!Turkey slaughter at Thanksgiving

Apparently there are more turkeys in Missouri than in Texas.  As a Welshman, when I read that the state of Missouri allows hunters to bag two birds in the month of October,  I had no idea what was going on in these Missouri woods, so I did a little research. 

The first thing that struck me was that if a permit costs $13 then you better make sure that you hit a turkey.  Then I read about hunting gear, and realized that this was not about cost, or even about eating turkey, it was about good old fashioned hunting.

What impressed me most was a group who hunted turkey with bows and arrows - now that seemed like a fair contest!

The Turkey Trot

Five little turkeys standing at the door,
One waddled off, and then there were four.Turkey Trot

Four little turkeys sitting near a tree,
One waddled off , and then there were three.

Three little turkeys with nothing to do,
One waddled off, and then there were two.

Two little turkeys in the morning sun,
One waddled off, and then there was one.

One little turkey better run away,
For soon it will be Thanksgiving Day.

Amusing Thanksgiving Quotes

  • When I was a kid in Indiana, we thought it would be fun to get a turkey a year ahead of time and feed it and so on for the following Thanksgiving.  But by the time Thanksgiving came around, we sort of thought of the turkey as a pet, so we ate the dog.  Only kidding.  It was the cat!  David Letterman
