Today is the big day. ThanksChanukah!! I am thankful for NOT being dinner tonight!
I hope that everyone is having a wonderful day with family and friends. And if it's your birthday today, too, I wish you a very Happy HanuBirthGivingDay.
Bring on the latkes!
I ventured out to the mailbox just now, and look what has been waiting for me! My pardon!
It's been sitting there since last week; I'd just been too frightened to leave my hiding place. You'd think that Mayor Thompson would have let me know so I wouldn't worry.
The mayor has not let me down. And now, I'm going to strut around the neighborhood, get some fresh air, and give Evy time to clean up the mess I made under the bed.
Thank you all for your support! And Happy ThanksChanukah!
I got this in my inbox today:
MENORNAMENTS would like to announce that Larry Turkey has been named Employee of the Month for November. He has worked tirelessly and at great risk to his own personal safety. This announcement comes a bit early, so that Larry can enjoy this honor, just in case he doesn't last past ThanksChanukah.
I have ambiguous feelings about this.
The mayor of Brunswick, GA has received my letter and is considering my request for a pardon. My relentless calls and emails are clearly paying off. When I called his cell phone last night at 11:30 pm, he immediately knew who I was and is clearly emotional about my plight.
You can help by sharing this and spreading the word to Save Larry Turkey. Please tweet and share on facebook, call your elected representatives, purchase an ornament of me to help fund my campaign - do whatever you can. My life is in your hands as I remain under the bed in an undisclosed location.
Here is a copy of the letter that I sent to Mayor Bryan Thompson of my hometown, Brunswick, GA:
Dear Mayor Bryan Thompson,
My name is Larry Turkey, and I am the official Spokesturkey for ThanksChanukah, the combined holiday of Thanksgiving and Chanukah.
I'm not writing to sell you on the awesomeness of the holiday; I'm here to ask for your help because I am a hunted turkey.
For the past two months, I have been urging Americans to Save a turkey and instead eat a latke when they sit down for their ThanksChanukah / Thanksgivukkah feast. I thought I was making progress, but it turns out that the only people who will not be eating turkey are the vegetarians. Now, I am in danger of being deep fried. Can you imagine?
A recent invitation for a "Spa and Sweat Lodge" day at Turkey Trot Farm has proved disastrous. I've now had to go into hiding and am unable to perform my duties as official Spokesturkey. I can't even trust other turkeys as it has become every turkey for himself.
You're my only hope, sir. I need a Mayoral pardon. Maybe you could even make me the official Spokesturkey for the city of Brunswick. Would that come with a stipend?
