It was Christmas Eve and the bars were full of sad-eyed men . . .
a local charity had purchased a truck load of turkeys to distribute among the poor, to give to the men so that they would have something to take home for Christmas dinner . . .But the men were too proud to take charity.
So Marash Girl's friend, John Powers, came up with a ruse that worked. . .
He walked into the neighborhood bars and whispered that he had a truckload of hot turkeys that he had to unload, and unload fast!
Within 15 minutes, the truck was empty, and the bars were empty. The men who were sad-eyed, leaning against the bar, were now grinning from ear to ear, pleased to be carrying home a turkey, a turkey they had paid for, a turkey for their family to eat on Christmas Day.
