Turkey's In Texas and Turkey, Texas 79261


They're Everywhere! They're Everywhere!
Yep! Turkeys are Everywhere in Texas this time of the year!


Here's a couple of Turkeys
that have trotted into this
Girl Raised In Texas Collection.

Picked the Table Turkey up at a Thrift Shop.

PaperPieced
(that'd be a Quiltin Thingy)
the Wall Hanging outta the ScrapBox,
and
Trot both of them out to display in November.

Now these are some of the TamerTurkeys in Texas...


...Texas has Wild Turkeys, too. Like these that inhabit most parts of Texas even in this GRIT's yard.


...and this Wild Turkey that Texans keep in the Medicine Cabinet this time of the year.


...and this Wild Turkey scene by Norman Rockwall. Not so much with the Snow here in West Texas, but in the Texas Panhandle in TURKEY, TEXAS...


...they get Snow in the Winter.
Yep, That's right! There's a Turkey, Texas!
Population 494...2000 Census!

Turkey Day Football is BIG in Texas! Here's a Bit of Turkey Football Talk...
...The pro football team had just finished their daily practice session when a large turkey came strutting onto the field. While the players gazed in amazement, the turkey walked up to the head coach and demanded a tryout. Everyone stared in silence as the turkey caught pass after pass and ran right through the defensive line. When the turkey returned to the sidelines, the coach shouted, "You're terrific!!! Sign up for the season, and I'll see to it that you get a huge bonus." "Forget the bonus," the turkey said, "All I want to know is, does the season go past Thanksgiving Day?"

  1. Oh Sweetie!
    This is so cute!
    I love, love,love it. Love the turkey on the table. He is so festive and decorative. He would be beautiful in a basket also with ghourds and etc. I also LOVE that quilted tablecloth that he is standing on. It is breath taking.

    Thanks for sharing this beautiful day. Country hugs and love, Sherry

  6. I enjoyed all of your turkeys, especially that cute Texas football joke! I did know there was a Turkey, Texas, and I think I may have been through there once. I never hear Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys that I don't think of my momma and daddy. They used to dance to Bob Wills in our front living room. Have a terrific Friday and beautiful weekend. Vicki
