Wordy Wednesday

I know it's really "Wordless Wednesday", where bloggers post a picture that needs no explanation, however, I think my photo needs a bit of background info.


About twice a month I visit this family run butcher shop, because the meats are wonderful and the prices are fantastic.  Well Saturday when I visited, this somewhat familiar fellow was strutting his stuff right at the front entrance. Doesn't he know that November, at least here in the US, is a bad month to be too visible for his kind?  Yep, my SIL even ordered a fresh turkey from this butcher shop last Thanksgiving (it could have been his family member)...how sad :(   As for me, I could never enjoy our Thanksgiving dinner if our bird was purchased from this shop.

Oh, yes, we will be having a bird, but not from the friendly neighborhood shop.

  4. yes, it is a bit sad...but if it was not for Thanksgiving, he would most likely never have been born and enjoyed walking out there.
    We all must face 'our time'...lol

  5. TOO FUNNY!! We have turkey as well...but I'm the one who prepares it and even though I like turkey, I cannot eat it after I have prepared it...isn't that silly??

  6. I agree with you, that would not be on my menu either.

  7. I saw 2 geese in a cage in a shop in Boston's China Town and to see them in all of their beauty awaiting their deaths horrified me! I thought it was the cruelest thing I've ever seen in my life. There they were probably thinking they were the shop pets and then soon they'd be someone's dinner w/o realizing it. I would be horrified to see that turkey in front of that butcher shop....I'd probably chase him away from there!

  9. Poor turkey!

    I've never been able to buy lobsters from the tank at the market, much less take them home and "steam" them.

  10. Oh my! We used to visit a market in France that had live chickens. Vance always wanted to buy one, but he didn't realize the farmer killed it for you once you did.

  14. Thanks for your comment on my blog! Rereading my post, I think I sounded too negative; I am enjoying Little Bee, just in need of a little cheeriness right now.

    Poor doomed turkey!

  15. That turkey needs to find another place to hang out for a while!

  16. Well, if you won't buy a Turkey from this shop then his evil plan worked! This may be his way of saving his neck.

  17. Poor turkey! I definitely prefer not to see my food's face. =/

  18. I enjoy meat, but when I see them - I FEEL so depressed and sad.

    I want to be vegetarian, but the temptation of a really well cooked meat dinner, has me forgetting the guilt all the time.

  20. I wouldn't want to see my turkey (or its relatives) alive either.

  21. Run little turkey run.

    I confess to eating turkey at Thanksgiving but I don't like to see them alive.
