Is for this hideous creature to be out of our home.

But I’ve put that on my list the last 2 years and Santa didn’t deliver. Bah humbug.

    Solution: Get a kitten, which will inevitably shred it. Or alternatively, a puppy which will probably knaw it to death. Bonus: kittens and puppies are far cuter than… that.

    That is one fine looking mounted turkey. Some people hunt their whole life and never harvest something that nice.

    I think I know your readers, baby, and I bet they would love to see more pictures of this amazing mount. Perhaps you should consider making it your background.

    Where does one display a turkey in one’s house?

    To Mrs. How Sweet – I feel your pain! We have a deer head over the fireplace that stares ahead blankly. I considered putting a red nose on it for the holidays but I didn’t want my neices and nephews to think we had killed Rudolph!

    I’m sorry Mr. How Sweet. That thing is really creepy.

    Mr. How Sweet said: “Some people hunt their whole life and never harvest something that nice.”

    Methinks Mrs. How Sweet is the ultimate ‘prey’. And with her, you’ve outdone yourself.

    Now, do you know where the nearest dumpster is? ;)

    Oh my goodness! I’ve waded through the comments and laughed. Thanks for the laughter everyone!

    As for that thing, I agree. It’s a decorating disaster. Only someone with a hunter’s lover soul would want that thing. I feel for you.

    And, if I was a guest, I chuck the thing out the hall and close the door. I would have nightmares with that thing in the same room with me. J/K about chucking it out into the hall. Sorta. Not sure. Maybe, I’d secretly hide it in the closet for the night. J/K. Sorta.
