Scott on the Disneyland tram. (12/03/06)
The reason you don't see much of him in the blog is that at the time we started it in early 2005, Scott and Erin had just moved to Ohio for a well-paying position. Well, as things turned out, Scott is single again and now living back in California. And since he also renewed his Disneyland annual pass, we figured it would be a good opportunity to have some dinner and catch up. It was nice seeing him again.

I was excited because I would also be able to see Flyer, the 2006 National Turkey. This is the turkey that the day before Thanksgiving received a "pardon" by President Bush. The annual pardoning of the National Turkey has been a tradition since the days of Harry S. Truman.

Starting last year, the turkeys have been flown directly from the White House to Disneyland where they would serve as honorary grand marshal of the Disneyland Thanksgiving Day Parade, after which they can be viewed at Santa's Reindeer Round-Up, a special holiday-themed area of the park.
After serving as the honorary grand marshal of the Disneyland Thanksgiving Day Parade, Flyer was put on display in the Santa's Reindeer Roundup part of Disneyland. Joining him was Fryer, the back-up turkey that they keep on hand in the event the main National Turkey isn't behaving.

You may remember that I wrote in the blog last year that I really wanted to go see Marshmallow, last year's National Turkey. However, since we had just let our Disneyland annual passes lapse for one full year, I wasn't able to see Marshallow at the 2005 Disneyland Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Finally, in 2006, I had my chance. Thanks Scott for coming along!
