I was only home for a day after Madison, before heading to California to visit my mother, Dakota and Ariden, so I never got my Thanksgiving Turkey Joke posted. Here is is now....either a belated Tahnksgiving Joke, and early Christmas Joke. Take your pick. It's been around for several years, but IMHO, funy enough to re-visit.

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.

Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.

John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite, words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.

Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder.

John, in desperation, threw up his hands, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then, suddenly there was total quiet! Not a peep was heard for over a minute!

Fearing that he had hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer.

The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said..

"I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my unforgivable behavior."

John was stunned at the difference in his attitude and as he was about to ask what had made such a dramatic change when the bird continued..."May I ask what the Turkey did?"

Had a good visit in California. Adrien and I decided to dye our hair purple. Here is Adrien in the "during" stage

and me in the "after" stage.
