Today’s ThanksBlogging challenge at Arkansas Women Bloggers – share a Thanksgiving Memory…
The memory that always comes to mind…
In the 1970’s
home on the farm
gathered around the table
spread with amazing casseroles
and dressing and pies
just said grace
about to dig in
…and what to our wondering eyes should appear
in the center of the dining room window?
There were no turkeys on our farm—we had no poultry whatsoever!
Was that his friend on our table?
His stare made eating a bit unnerving… but we managed.
That was the first and last time we ever saw a turkey on our farm.

Hello! I'm Kate. says
I see this post was tagged “Mississippi County”– my mom was born in MS County & that’s where her dad was from. I’m loving meeting AR bloggers!
Talya Tate Boerner says
Hi Kate. What town was your mom born in? I’m sure my mother knows her – LOL.
haha…very cool!!! That ‘peeping tom turkey’ must have gotten the guest list mixed up with the menu list!=) As always, I love waking up and reading your awesome blog! It’s a great way to get my day started!
MJ Shellabarger says
That’s a great story!
Another good one!
A peeping Tom turkey at the BAT cave on Thanksgiving in Cottonwood Corner proves once again that truth is stranger than fiction. That is so bizarre!
True story; hard to believe, right? We never did know where that peeping Tom came from. theBAT

Fantastic! Excellent writing. I’m sure he probably knew that delicious bird sitting on your table. 😉
Oh my! Sooo bizarre! Beautiful turkey!
Kelsie Fannon says
That’s crazy!!! I’ve never even seen a turkey in real life!
I’m not sure I could have finished my turkey, ha!
Angi Cartwright says
Oh wow, I agree with Mark, very bizarre. Wonder what town Kate’s family is from.
