All this shooting your own bird talk is for people who like pellets in their turkey.   I like to chase the wild turkeys I have down in my neighborhood. Soon as I catch one I put it in a sleeper hold. When it wakes up I punch it straight in the face with some brass knuckles.  I never chop the head off.  Ahh there is nothing like having a turkey with two black eyes at the dinner table.  Now thats what the holidays are all about.

I Give Thanks to all who serve and have served our USA! With the faults we are all aware of in our country today. We are still the Greatest Nation since time began. Let us all be thankful for the sacrifices that have been given for our freedom today and tomorrow and the next. 
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

And if some illegal farm worker didn't take care for turkey, chicken nor plant, grow, pick, pack, and ship your bean sprouts and tofu to Whole Foods for you, you wouldn't be having your Thanksgiving Day dinner  tonight either.....so.....you got a point here?

We are having a different kind of Thanksgiving.. ALL the Meat and ALL the Veggie's have been either hunted for or grown in my garden, picked, washed and either canned or frozen.. This years meal includes, Deer roast, cooked on an open fire, Duck Breast, also cooked on an open fire, Turkey baked, All fresh Vegie's..Corn, turnip greens w / turnips, Sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, purple hull peas w/ snaps, green beans, okra, cornbread / bread stuffing, made from stone ground cornmeal & bread I baked, and a relish tray with zucchini pickles, bread and butter pickles, pickled beets... I want my family to KNOW how the LORD provides the bounty of our Harvest and to be truly thankful.. Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving.. remember those this year who have nothing, those who have lost loved ones and our Brave Military men and women, and their families, who are on foreign soil ... Whether you agree with the conflicts or not those men and women put their lives on the line to do what they are trained to do.. God Bless!!
