Thanksgiving. After almost a full day dealing with virus software issues, things are almost where they should be. Everything got cleaned up, but the "super tech" who did the work left this mailbox working at roughly 20% of its original speed. When told about it his response was "take it to a computer repair shop." So I guess I'll be spending some time with "corporate" on Friday. Meanwhile, it is Thanksgiving, a time for reflection and the gathering together of family and friends for far too much food and perhaps football as well, or, as in our case, a quiet dinner out at a very nice restaurant. After a full day of two highly active grand daughters, we are more than ready for the day of quiet. :-D Now, as the magnificent turkey didn't make it as our national bird, instead being beaten out by a scavenger, much to Ben's disgust, I thought I "spruce up" the old Tom a bit for your viewing pleasure. Perhaps if the turkeys on the middle 1700s had looked like this, the turkey would be out national symbol after all. ISO 500; 1/250 sec @ f / 9. D300; 70 - 300 mm.
