Turkey vs Vegas

If I was debating the price points of two purchases I made today, the turkey would have won. I stopped by the Victor Valley Market this afternoon and ordered a fresh organic free-range turkey to be delivered next week. The 12 pound bird runs 4.59 a pound ($55).

Earlier in the day I was browsing hotel rates in Las Vegas for the heck of it and ran across room rates of $18.50 a night at the Riviera. I’m traveling south next week so I just had to buy two of them and plus tax it came to $41.

Steph’s boss laughed when he heard what I paid for a turkey. He said I should have just bought a tag, driven to Swan Valley and shot one. Well yea, that would have been the manly thing to do I suppose, but I’m saving my ammo for the zombie apocalypse.

As far as Vegas goes, I’ll be back home in time to enjoy that pricey bird.

  1. Loving the rainbow. What beautiful colors it has in it. And I agree with Steph’s boss. You would have had a wonderful time running a bird down. And plucking it isn’t that hard. Next week is turkey time can hardly wait. Wendy got us a 21 lb. bird I’ll be cooking up . Of course it’s for a lot of people. Have a safe trip to Vegas..
