Turkey

I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country; he is a bird of bad moral character...The turkey is, in comparison, a much more respectable bird, and wihtal a true original native of America...He is, though a little vain and silly, it is true, but not the worse emblem for that, a bird of courage, and would not hestitate to attack a grenadier of the British guards.

Benjamin Franklin, letter of January 26, 1784.

To my friends, family and strangers--far and near, I am thankful for all of you for being in my life. Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.
