Thanksgivings can be quite eventful for families, to say the least. For Thomas Pryor's family, Thanksgiving 1961 was one for the ages, complete with a dropped turkey.
This was on TV every Thanksgiving when I was a kid. Each time, Mom saw the cartoon, she said, "We're were as poor as those kids." Each time, Dad heard Mom say that, he said,"Liar." Despite the commentary, I still enjoyed it and Rory and I sang along into the ears of our sleeping grandfather.
