      Mayhaw Man has spent the last two days editing to protect the guilty, the dead, and the infirm. Also editing all references to Mrs. Mayhaw out of the story,as there is a certain amount of shame in being married to me when it involves stories like this. I will post it on this thread tonight, but I am warning you , it is long and rambling and reads alot like fiction, but the events contained in the story pretty much happened the way it is written, and the end of the story contains my method for turkey frying (which, as you will see, has improved greatly from my first, soon to be famous on a limited basis, attempt)

        Everything in my life seems to be long and rambling and MUCH like fiction anyway and your already famous around this house! I eagerly await your "Tales of the Turkey"!.............(no insult intended!)

            Will it be a tale of lust for power, international intrigue and a quest for world domination ???

                  There was a problem in the translation from word to this format.

                  Where is says lucky shirt, it should be in floral script and all letters should be large and capitalized and the r should be in lower case and very small.........you figure it out

                    Mayhaw, that was certainly worth waiting for, I laughed so hard I have tears in my eyes. You're quite the storyteller and I'm looking forward to Part Two! Were you drinking a Turbo Dog whilst writing this???

                        This pre dated Turbodog by about 6 or 7 years. I should know, it was my recipe (at least adapted by myself and the owner of Abita from a recipe of Peter Eggleston of New Hampshire). I was the vp/brewmaster at The Abita Brewing Co. (LLC) from 87-97. I am legally prohibited from saying anything else about Abita thanks to an agreement and thanks to good sense on my part.

                          Mayhaw Man. Great write and and a easy read. I sort of felt like I was there. I felt for the turkey and I was really hoping he would settle down and do the poo thing.

                          That was fun

                              WOW. A man that tells a hilarious true story, fries turkeys and was the vp/brewmaster for Abita Brewing Co???? Are you for real? If so, I'm in love.

                                You are quite the raconteur! I was a little worried when you said the **** hit the fan, because my brother recently had an incident involving a parrot and a ceiling exhaust fan, with the result being green and red feathers flying all over the warehouse.

                                  Oh Mayhaw! Too funny! If I'd a known all that was going on back in the 80's, I would have been there and bet on #5.

                                  Only in Louisiana I swan.

                                  Now, how can you be embarrased, we can't even see you!

                                  Your story was like one of those Saturday afternoon cliffhangers and we will all have to wait to see what fate awaits Tom.

                                  Thank you for your story.

                                      I will try to post it in the morning. Not quite done. Tommorrow sometime for sure. Two soccer games and elections. Kinda busy.

                                      But don't be on pins and needles. Tom does not go on to a long career on Saturday Serials

                                                You must be a turkey.

                                                I will finish up when I get home tonight. I was busy having a life outside of Roadfood this weekend. (it is possible, you know)

                                                  I prefer the honored nomenclature of Meleagris gallopavo but yes, indeed, I stand before you a turkey. Gobble, gobble.

                                                            No, an evil newspaper deadline kidnapped him. He has now been released and, after a delicious lunch of leftover shrimp cakes, bbq'd redfish, pecan/hazelnut risotto and some vietnamese style iced coffee, he should be refreshed enough to finish his delightful little tale of turkey torture, gluttony, and regret.

                                                            I will finish today.

                                                            Thanks,
