Turkey reprieve in 3...2...

I've never met the legendary Regina Schrambling, but she seems to have an uncanny knack for making me not feel alone. I can't directly link to the particular entry on her site, but suffice to say that once, a few years ago, she recounted an incident that brought me great solace at a time when it was very much needed.

Just in time for Thanksgiving, she's done it again. Cheers, Ms. Schrambling, and happy Thanksgiving.
