Turkey for you; turkey for me

Work of Art, Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017

Call a person a turkey, and you might be using fighting words. But I can make an exception and even construe the moniker as a compliment.

Let me explain:

My mother, Marie, served two two-year terms as San Miguel County Treasurer back in the early ‘60s. It was customary (maybe it still is) for bankers to gift elected officials on Thanksgiving for their services. Mom died early this century and is therefore unable to explain things in detail.
