These Are Not The Turkeys You Are Looking For...

I know I started with a quote from Star Wars, but isn't ANY holiday made better by Star Wars?  "This Sleigh Is Not The Sleigh You Are Looking For?"  "This Easter Bunny Is Not The Easter Bunny You Are Looking For?"  See, ANY holiday.  


This post is about the President and Turkeys - Not The President Is A Turkey, because I don't get political on the blog.  I like to keep it good-natured and offensive to no one.  Sooo, what religion are you?  Just kidding.  President Obama did something this morning that all Presidents since Truman have done.  No, he did not drop an Atomic Bomb and he did not let a celebrity sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom.  What he did, was pardon 2 turkeys.  He saved them from the butcher's block.  Liberty and Peace are free to spend Turkey Day the way they want to, which I am pretty sure does not mean being roasted or fried.


A few years ago, President Bush sent his pardoned turkeys to Disneyland.  Which was great because the week after Thanksgiving we were at Disneyland and saw one of them.  And then I noticed the Turkey legs for sale at a few select dining places at Dland and wondered if that is where the other turkey went.  I guess you had to be there to find it funny...


But this year the 2 turkeys will be at Washington's Mount Vernon (why do the first couple of Presidents live in a home that is named?  Oh, and Elvis!).  They will be on hand for the Christmas celebration (open to the public) at Mount Vernon.  I sure hope that the celebration is fun and that the turkeys do not have to cross the Delaware!  BADA BUM BUM...That was a joke, but me explaining that it was a joke probably lessens the impact...


Happy Thanksgiving!!
