Out on the prairie my Husband and me.
Are stuck in a our cabin with a very urgent plea.
We have no place to go ânot family at least.
To sit and enjoy a good turkey feast.
Now truth be told weâre really quite quirky.
So you shant put it past us that weâd eat something other than turkey.
Pizza Dave makes a frozen pepperoni to boast.
And itâs not beyond me to just eat some garlic toast.
My burly husband deserves something much more inviting.
We wish a church was serving food-it would be well worth the tithing.
Those church ladies can cook this is for certain.

Throughout the years, professional wrestling has seen its share of face paint, whether on icons such as Sting, the Ultimate Warrior, or even the legendary Legion of Doom tag team.
But nobody in the business has taken it to the level that former WWE World Heavyweight and current Total Nonstop Action World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy has.
Every night before he gets in the TNA ring, Hardy, 35, uses his face to create his latest artistic creation, giving each audience a look to remember him by.
For the first 20 minutes of the Valley City State University women's basketball team's game with St. Cloud State Wednesday at W.E. Osmon Field house, the Vikings struggled at times against a tough Huskie defense, but never let the game get out of hand, even mounting a story run to keep it close at halftime in the 70-45 loss.
But in the second half of the exhibition for the Vikings, which has no effect on the team's win-loss record, the pressure finally got to them.
