"What am I thankful for?," the little turtle asked himself.
Then he answered. "I'm thankful I'm not a turkey."
Speaking of turkeys, I recently found a really cute little one that was made in Mexico!
Imagine my surprise when I found some of these "Made in Mexico" animals right here in the good ol' USA.
It was in the Berkshire Mountain Country Store in a small town called Lenox in Western Massachusetts.
I bought the little turkey with the wobbly head, just in time for the holidays. It was hard to get a clear photo of him because his head kept bobbing. Isn't he cute?
He joined his cousin, shown below, on a shelf in the bathroom.
Once, in a magazine, there was a photograph of a hutch filled with shelf after shelf of turkeys. It was the home owner's collection.
Every kind of turkey imaginable was in there including big boys and little babes. There were cookie jar turkeys, soup tureen turkeys, and candles shaped like turkeys.
It was a great collection. (If I were to die and come back to earth in another life, that might be a good collection to begin. It would definitely be a collection to "gobble" about.)
