Til the ends of the earth: A Thanksgiving tale.

We followed that little bugger to the ends of the earth. At one point, we  lost sight of him, but he just couldn’t keep quiet.

I  spotted him in the thick brush, he was just standing there.

When we realized we couldn’t get a good shot, my son took after him on foot and chased him down the trail until there wasn’t a trail at all, just a steep cliff.

He tried to fly away, but everyone knows turkeys can’t fly. He landed below, on a soft pile of bushes.

We invited him to dinner. He was delicious.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American Blogger Friends.  This story is also my entry into this week’s Friday Fictioneers. Click on the froggy for more stories

  1. Funny story, Ted, but not for the turkey. I found it easier to just buy one. We used to live in North Carolina and they’re less expensive there as so many are raised. The tame ones probably have a different taste than the wild ones. I’ve heard the wild ones are a lot smarter. Well done, and I hope you and yours had a great Thanksgiving. 😀 — Suzanne

    1. As a Canadian, we celebrate our Thanksgiving in October, and yes, we had a great Thanksgiving Rabbit. Some eat Turkey, but nowadays Turkey is such a common meal that Rabbit is much better.Thanks for reading!
