The definitive guide to the history, ancient practice and fortune-telling meanings of the dried turkey bone or merry thought--is once again available in limited edition from Wishbone North. The booklet with plastic practice bones can be purchased for $3 or comes free with buying a restaurant gift card of $30.00 or more--through the end of this month. Lettertype cover, illustrations and never-before-revealed meaning behind getting the "short end of the bone" or winning with the "furcula majeur" are all part of this unusual Thanksgiving keepsake. From the Etruscans through the entire Roman period where avian divination ruled political and social life and established holidays, the practice continues today in the age of crystal gazing at smartphones. . . . Click on the broken bone to find YOUR fortune in the great bone pull of the leftovers. There's more to it than meets the eye!
