Who is My Neighbor?

I got a coupon for a free turkey from the Good Samaritan nursing home where I've worked for the past year.
The funny part happened when I went to the supermarket to pick it up. The cashier announced by way of the store-wide intercom:
"I need a Good Samaritan Turkey!"
I don't really know what I expected...

    That grocery fellow new a 'Good Samaritan' when he saw one! I'm glad they gave you one.
    My sister worked for Good Samaritan for quite a few years, in the office. In fact she retired from there. Theirs was in Fontenelle, Iowa, where they lived then.
    It was one of the best nursing homes I had ever seen. Dad stayed there for a year before my sister moved to Center Point.

    After one year you get a dead turkey. How many years do you have to work there to get the golden goose?

    Well, I wasn't there, so I know they weren't calling for me.

    Funny!!
    Do you ever feel you're surrounded by turkeys??

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your hubby and family. BTW, my hubby and I are not coffee drinkers either. As it was with your hubby, it would be BIG news if we drank it. It smells good, but tastes yucky.
