I’m a Little Turkey, bok a bok a bok….


Another day passes here at the old Tavern!    Welcome again to Oscar’s Tavern!

What can I get you?  Charlene has made us up some fried fish sandwiches add a side of chips… MMMmmm  “de-lish”.  And todays drink is ol’ number 7, Jack Daniels Whiskey. A little over ice.  MMMmmm Thats how I like it.

Well its a lot colder here today. in the 30’s.  Broke out the ol’ leather jacket. Funny how a day before its 72, then today its freezing. Whats with that?

Ok, So I’m in the grocery store the other day picking up some things and I come around the corner of the dairy aisle to get my yogurts and I see this atractive tall woman with these neat stockings. They were grey with white verticle lines. Very nice. So I’m checking her out. Then I am overwhelmed by her child in the cart seat. she was this cute little girl, probably around 4 or 5, sitting in the seat with her lil light blue jacket. She was singing her heart out, ” I’m a little turkey, I’m a little turkey, Bok a bok!  Bock a bok a bock, I’m a little turkey, I’m a little turkey, bok a bok a bok a bok!!!!!!”  Waving her arms like wings with a big smile on her face. She was so cute. I look at her mom and said, “she’s a happy girl“!   Her mom said, “yes, she is. and crowing about it!” LOL   I couldn’t walk away.  I was smiling and kinda laughing inside.  Boy don’t we all wish we were that happy, and life was so simple.  This went on for quite a while. I was in the paper goods aisle and could still hear between the bad piped in music, “bok a bok a bok”    Everyone was smiling.   No – Thats not her but you get the picture. Very similar.

Something interesting always happens in the grocery store. If it doesn’t, I make something happen.

In a fifth-grade class, a teacher asked students various science questions, of which the following were the funniest:

Teacher: “What is the definition of a protein?’
Student: “A protein is something that is made up of mean old acids.”

Teacher: “What kind of tails do opossums have?”
Student: “Reprehensible ones”

Teacher: “What is the spinal column?”
Student: “A long bunch of bones. The head sits on the top and you sit on the bottom.”

Teacher: “How long does it take the Earth to rotate about its axis?”
Student: “The Earth makes a resolution once every 24 hours.”
Teacher: “That’s wishful thinking.”


My cell phone ringtone currently is the sound of Pee Wee Herman laughing. I was with someone this weekend in an empty room and the phone rang. The woman looked at me like I was nuts.  Haa haa, haa haa. haa haaa. hih hih hih.

 I sent it to Jeannie. She loves it.  She told me to call her often so she can laugh.


Well let me get back to work.

  1. OMG. That little girl sounds ADORABLE.

    I cant believe how cold it is already. There were flurries of snow this morning. I think we are in for a brutal winter.
