Gooble, Gooble

Whether you're eating some turkey or just happen to be acting like one, I pray that you and yours have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

That's me and the First Grade down at Holy Family School the other day.  Near Thanksgiving last year, I was invited to read the Kindergarden a book about the first Thanksgiving.  Needless to say, I arrived with the appropriate headgear.  Which meant that for the rest of the year, those kids called me "Fr. Turkey Head."  When they did so at their Kindergarden graduation last June, some of their parents and grandparents nearly popped a gasket at their apparent disrespect for the clergy...until they saw the slideshow of the year and discovered what all the fuss was really about.

Somehow, the name still seems to stick...
