Paul,
You did the right thing!  I've had brined, smoked, otherwise done turkeys.  None can compare to my mother's.  She's been cooking turkeys for 55 years, in her old roaster, in the oven, basting it often.  As a chef, I have never eaten better.

Pigiron, that looks fantastic. Unfortunately we were preempted and had to have an alternative at hand but the next holiday is coming and I am going to do this. Good to know about the drippings.

Greg, it looks like you need a lesson in carving. 
 
Sorry to hear you were both sick.  Hope you're both feeling better.
 
My turkey bone soup is now simmering on the stove after a good roasting in the oven.

Carving a Turkey was never a strong suit of mine!

The way we do it is first separate the breast from the bird.  Then you slice it.

We had a rather "smallish" Turkey this year (13 lbs.) and this is what's left over...
Chances are 90% that most everything you see here will get tossed minus enough perhaps for a sandwich or two!?  
I refuse to eat dark meat so that part for sure will get tossed!
With both of us being sick as hell on that day our appetites werent the best! :-(

Thats look like the makings of some GREAT turkey noodle soup, turkey stock and turkey tetrazini.
