Free Calendar Turned Out to be a Real Turkey

Associated Press - Jackson, Tenn, Spokesman-Review, Sunday, November 24, 1996, p. A4

Cathy Mullikin's bird is cooked, and her calendar is toast.

Mullikin had her Thanksgiving turkey dinner already cooked on Thursday, "and my friends and family are coming on the 28th and they're going to think I'm a kook," she said.

She should never have believed that free calendar. Jackson-Madison County General Hospital gave out 40,000 of them last year and every last one said Thanksgiving was on the 21st instead of the 28th.
