Turkey Time…

We all consider a Turkey to be a large gallinaceous bird that is of wide range in North America. However –Turkey also is a country in western Asia and southeastern Europe. Turkey, as well is confused with the guinea fowl, supposed to be imported from Turkish territory in 1555. Turkey is also a theatrical expression to mean a theatrical production that has failed. It is three successive strikes in bowling, and is an expression used to indicate that a person is foolish, stupid or inept.

Turkey is used in terms such as turkey-cock (the gobbler or a person who is pompous), Turkey-red (red iron oxide used as a pigment), turkey shoot (a marksmanship contest using a moving target with a turkey offered as a prize), turkey trot (a ragtime danced with the feet well apart and with a characteristic rise on the ball of the foot followed by a drop upon the heel), and finally – turkey vulture, here in the southern US known as a turkey buzzard.

The American turkey has become domesticated in most parts of the world. I like to Image result for free pic of the first thanksgivingremember it as the gift the Indians (native to America), gave to the pilgrims along with a lot of other foods when the pilgrims – new to America –  were nearing starvation before the winter storms were to come upon them. It was a feast to be remembered as THANKSGIVING. God had answered the pilgrims prayers. Everyone gave thanks to God for the bounteous meal that was eagerly enjoyed by all.

One thought on “Turkey Time…”

  1. Ilse, HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU TOO! With my love always, your far away sister, Sonja.

    P.S. Hope you are spending Thanksgiving with Christi and all the grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Yesterday, I spent a half a day playing with my newest little Quinn at Katelyn’s new house while she and Ryan unpacked boxes and put plates, dishes, etc. in her beautiful new cabinets, I had the best time with the baby, she laughs, giggles, and really kicks her feet and wails her arms about, she likes looking at books and trying to reach her toys hanging above her. Her eyes are so big and adorable your heart just melts. she is so happy all the time when she is awake, and very observant watching everything around her. Of course after play time she was hungry and ready for a nap. Katelyn fed her and then I held her in my arms rocking her the rest of the time, until she woke up again. Oh I don’t know if I could make it through each day without these little great grandchildren. Suzette has really made her time on Saturdays so that she has her grandchildren on weekends. She has her whole basement filled with all kinds of toys and set=ups, such as kitchens, tables,chairs, a tent in the corner, etc. for them to play with, and sleep overs all the time with them. So I let her, after all she is their grandmother, However, Yesterday when Renlee and Aldan came to my house with Janette. Little Renlee came up to me and hugged me and gave me a kiss and said to me, “Grandma I still Love You!” and of course I responded back to her how much I loved her too, and was so glad I got to take care of her when she was a baby and her mommy went to work. I felt so uplifted by her little remarks and expressions of love. Little Aldan responds to me with love too, they both come into the house and the first thing they do is run to me for hugs and kisses, and loves. They are all so sweet and make my days lovely. I am so grateful for each one of them. Dallan and his wife last Saturday came and spent the afternoon with me, as they both had the day off from work. His wife, Liana is a physical therapist at the Pinecrest Rehab home where Burke went after his hip surgeries and pelvis break for therapy and recuperation off of Harrison, in Ogden. I am grateful for the blessings I do have, and, of course, as we all have, I still have trials, too, so everything isn’t rosy, but I am liking it here in Tooele, I have some good friends, and some opportunitis to go to the Temple from time to time. Not as often as you do, but, when I get there, it seems my weeks go better, so I do miss it, but am glad for the times I get to go. Love, Sonja
