Utterly unapologetic, Eddie stands fuming outside in the bitter cold while his son, wife, and in-laws sit silently at the dinner table, surrounding a cold turkey. But how did such woeful events come to pass on Thanksgiving Day?
To discover that answer, read “Cold Turkey,” my November short story found in both the Peoria and Bloomington editions of the free periodical, News and Views for the Young at Heart.

The Peoria edition is also in most doctors’ offices and pharmacies in Pekin, Morton, Chillicothe, Lacon, Farmington, Canton, East Peoria, and Eureka.
The title “Cold Turkey” has a triple meaning. If you think you’ve figured out all three, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
