Last Update: November 26, 2015

I remember watching this tv show when it first aired and I can't think of Thanksgiving and not think of this.

"As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!"

I'm glad to be able to hang out with you eagles.

Happy Thanksgiving

You are so right Phil. We are surrounded by turkeys. Our country is even being run by them. We need more eagles. like the members here at WA.

Hey, Ken, I don't know if the country is being run by turkeys as much as the middle-class is not a priority to them. It seems to me that a change happened in 1980. Up until that time the middle-class was doing pretty good. Ahhh the good old days.

WKRP used to be my favorite! Even went on to college to get a degree in journalism and worked in radio (in a past life). Degree went from journalism to business and DJ turned into Affiliate Marketer. It's more fun being an Affiliate Marketer! :-) Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Thanks, Cathy, I did, but I'm still digesting, I'm not use to eating like that.
Do you know what was another great newsroom/journalism based tv show, "The Mary Tyle Moore Show" how about...

So many turkeys, but you have to keep searching for the eagles!

Except at Thanksgiving when you're better off with the turkey. I don't think you can eat eagles.

The Eagle quote and obviously many a time from others over the years, always reminds me of being 15 or so though and knowing exactly where I wanted to be further down the tracks... Soaring!

Ahhhh, 15. At 15 years of age, I suffered from Non-Acrophobia, a deadly fear of not being high. I outgrew it though. ;^)

PJ, they say laughter is the best medicine. I say wash it down with some Bourbon and that will cure a lot of ills.

I don't know exactly what Americans have with turkeys, what would they be thankful for?
Reply
BrooklynPhil Premium
Loes, I'm not sure turkeys are thankful for anything. I've heard they're not that smart, certainly not smart enough to talk.
I have two African Gray parrots that are smart enough to talk. They just had turkey dinner with us. When I tell Jaco (my male) that if he's not quiet we're going to eat him next, he just throws back his head and laughs.

Nice quote...eagles are mighty and turkeys (hmm...)

Coney, if Ben Franklin had his way the turkey would be the National Bird of the US and not the Bald Eagle (who he considered a scavenger).

Hi Phil, how's it going? Reminds of the song from the animated movie Dumbo: "When I saw an Elephant fly" , watched it with my grandkids. Wishing you, and all US citizens a happy and peaceful thanksgiving.
