My Creativitis

The Rantings of a Crazed Woman with Chronic Creativitis

The Thanksgiving Holiday Bird is, of course the turkey.  Everyone knows that.  We don’t even need to discuss it.  But I do want to mention that this was the bird that started it all for me, as far as the whole Holiday Bird thing goes.  When I made this little bird he inspired me, and the rest is history, as they say.  I got a little bit bird-brained, and went a little crazy.  But for me, that’s quite normal.  So, here is my turkey:

Thanksgiving Turkey

He’s a bit uptight, as you can tell.  But I can’t say that I blame him, under the circumstances, even though we’ve had some serious heart-to-heart talks and I’ve told him that I couldn’t possibly eat him!

I think he’s trying to be friendly, but it’s not coming across so well.

Insulted Turkey

Oops.  I think I’ve insulted him.  So let me tell you about his particulars: He is 1 and 1/4 inch from tail feathers to tip of beak, and 7/8 of an inch tall.  So, let me wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you enjoy your……stuffing.   And Pie.  :)

Choosing a bird to represent our war veterans was a bit of a challenge, but after pondering different options I hit upon what I felt was a great choice – the falcon.  Then I did a bit of research (not too much, of course.  Mustn’t over do it), and I felt even better about my wise decision.   For one thing, the falcon is the fastest bird in the world, and is a fierce predator.  I mean, look at that face!

But, in addition, the falcon just happens to be the mascot of the Air Force Academy, and I’m sure they didn’t make that choice lightly either.  I found this out AFTER I picked this fine specimen to represent our veterans.  Isn’t that cool?   Well, I suppose I might have had that knowledge stored away somewhere in my brain at one time or another, which could help explain why the falcon made such perfect sense to me.  But if so, I’d forgotten it, so I don’t know if it counts or not.

Falcon Face-off

This particular falcon is 1 and 3/4 inches from beak to tail, and 1 and 1/4 inches tall.  Don’t mess with him!  He’s a veteran of the skies!
