2008 will be marked forever as the year the Book Elves went green. No, not
"green" the way they "went green" last St. Patrick's Day with that vat of
permanent industrial dye, "green" as in ecologically-minded (as in using
300 feet of extension cord to tap into the neighbor's solar panels). For
Thanksgiving they decided to go with a "free-range" turkey this year, a
decision you would not normally expect to be a recipe for trouble, broken
crockery, and numerous minor injuries...

Unfortunately the Book Elves neglected to fully grasp the huge difference
between "free-range" and "feral", and proceeded to round up a flock of 20
wild turkeys and herded them onto the screen porch. Wild turkeys, unlike
the domesticated variety, can fly, like to kick, have a  bad attitude, and
(rather like wolves) will attack, in packs, when they are angry.

But before a hungry pack of 20 wild turkeys ravaged the dining room, ate
all the cranberry sauce, and locked the Book Elves in the pantry, and just
before the fine folks from the Massachusetts Department of Fish & Wildlife
showed up with a packet of summonses, the Book Elves finished our latest
catalog-

"Catalog #315: 'To Furnish a Fine House' -Books on Furniture,
Cabinetmakers, Metalwares, Textiles, and other Americana"
