“Gobble Gobble,” said The Llama!

 

Did you know that the average height of a turkey is 48 inches? That’s pretty short, relative to humans…

 

So in honor / memory of turkeys, this post will also be short. (But I wanted to have SOMETHING for those of you desperately looking for something to do this weekend!)

 

Happy Thanksgiving!
