Thanksgiving 1961

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Think of those without and do something about it when you can.

Did you hear about the suicidal turkey on York Avenue? Mr. Beller's did, and here's the scoop.
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.
