    Happy Thanksgiving all!!! (early)

    In the event I am unable to get online, I thought I should tell everyone to have a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the joke I swiped from another site.

    A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The
    parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.

    Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious
    and laced with profanity. John tried and tried to
    change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only
    polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could
    think of to 'clean up' the bird's vocabulary.

    Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot.
    The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the
    parrot got angrier and even more rude. John, in desperation,
    threw up his hand, grabbed the bird and put him in the
    freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked
    and screamed.
    Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard
    for over a minute.

    Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened
    the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out
    onto John's outstretched arms and said "I believe I
    may have offended you with my rude language and
    actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my
    inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do
    everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

    John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.

    As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a
    dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke-up, very
    softly, "May I ask what the turkey did?"


    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Good one Jon.

    Got to get my Wild Turkey out to marinate this evening. And then back in the fridge.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
