I was about to post the ASCII art turkey when I thought I'd better check to see when I posted it last—last year,
and back in 2008 and 2006.
A quick search for Thanksgiving ASCII art isn't showing much,
but I did find this one:

I've done the glazed ham for Thanksgiving.
I also noticed I used a variation of “Gobble gobble” as a title last year, 2008, 2004 and 2002.
nothing like blogging for twenty years to make fresh takes on Thanksgiving difficult.
I also don't think I can top last year's post about turkey drops,
so I think I'll just leave you with the wish to have a Happy Thanksgiving with those you love,
followed by a nice long nap as the tryptophan works through your system.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
