Turkeys, Oi Gevalt! Retirement Yenta cannot stand such foul birds. While growing up in the Wilds of Connecticut, she lived near chicken farms, and that has forever turned her against the birds. During her teenage years, driving down the highway behind a truck full of cooped up chickens (or turkeys) was a hazard…feathers flying, the smell…you get the picture. Besides, dear Readers, the way these birds are treated is simply inhumane. Today, your dear Yenta suggests you boycott turkey and create a new holiday tradition: Chinese food, while gambling at your local casino. There is nothing like it when this little Yenta gets on a roll, and especially when she is on a roll with an egg roll in her mouth. YUM. Retirement Yenta says: Gambling and Chinese food make for a great day of thanks. While your rolling the dice, you can talk turkey (for only a little chicken feed).
