t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Mr. Turkey

Here is a fun poem for Thanksgiving to memorize with your children.

Mr. Turkey

"Good Morning, Mr. Turkey, I've come to talk to you.
But you're so big and gobbly, you kind of scare me too.
I have something to tell you that I think you ought to hear.
It's just like this Mr. Turkey, Thanksgiving's awfully near.

It surely comes tomorrow, that's what my mama said.
And if you're here tomorrow, Mr. Turkey, you'll be dead.
It makes me feel real sorry, what I heard my mama say
So I came right out to tell you: Mr. Turkey, run away!!!"
