Happy Thanksgiving from BooneDocksWilcox

Every once in a while with my camera, I'm in the right place at the right time.
Franklin and two of his girls, Sally and Franny


I love my pet turkeys so much, and yet I come inside and make some turkey rolls - stuffing inside, a slice of turkey, rolled in a slice of turkey/bacon.


Blissi and I went for a walk at the Old Cove Creek School.


Blissi checks out the Watauga River.


Have you ever heard of Doc Watson? He's a living legend 'round here.




Yeah, I heard from my public-sector boss, he emailed a note:
While the unauthorized picture taking was regrettable, you should have sent this email to John so he knew what your status was. I left the office on Monday in tears, sent him a detailed summary of what happened, what my doctor said and wrote, but sounds like he was puzzled like I may have hopped a cruise ship.
*****************************************
On a brighter note, good night my dear girls.

FRANKLIN!!!!!!!!!!!


But. Um. What do you mean "his girls Sally and Franny?"

He has girlfriends? Mistresses? Ladies of the evening?

{gasp}

Franklin! Say it isn't so!

You're mine! Mine, I say! All mine!

I LOVE that picture, it really would be a great Thanksgiving Day Postcard! Sorry to hear things are not going great at work, it can certainly be aggravating and frustrating when co-workers just don't get it.

You get such good pictures! The turkeys look like something from a magazine,they are gorgeous!

That old school has held up beautifully.Do they still use it?

Even your goatie girls seem to be posing for you to take their pictures.

It is a shame about your boss.If it had been his wife or daughter his attitude would probably be different.

It looks like you had a nice walk.It is truly beautiful where you live!

Ah, Franklin...does he know what a lucky turkey he is? Next thing I expect to see is a picture of him on a leash, walking by the river, lol!

I hope you keep up the emotional fortitude to be able to pursue the picture-taking issue to a satisfying conclusion. Looks like there are some hoops to be jumped through, though. Unfortunately, you'll probably have to follow all the appropriate steps just to cover your you-know-what!

Glad you're welcoming us back into your corner of the world--'cause it's such a beautiful corner!

wv: resest: combination of rest & reset--just what you need!!

Your Turkey Thanksgiving photo is adorable! I love it....but that turkey roll runs a close second! Yummo!

The trio of goats lined up reminds me of a drum set-up. hehe!
