If our national bird was a turkey, I wonder what we'd eat for Thanksgiving.

This was great, Carol!
I remember seeing that movie years ago and we all loved it!

And I remember reading many times that Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the symbol of America. He had some good arguments but I'm glad it's the eagle that won!

Cute post!
Have a great weekend!
Love,
Eileen

Dearest Carol, Thank you for your kind words about my story; it means a lot to me because I love to write, but of course, it is a life-time art of perfecting it and really being fluent with the words. It is fun, and that is what matters at this point! My goal is to touch the hearts of whoever needs a lift. Who knows...may Charli will get a poem of her own!!:) Anita
