For Thanksgiving Dinner, See Wayman McGinness

If you are beginning your Thanksgiving dinner plans and have a time machine handy, all you need to do is see Wayman McGinness in Skidmore, Missouri in 1923:

For your Thanksgiving dinner, we will have celery, oysters, cranberries.  If it is a roast we have either beef or pork.  Call 118 and call early for better service.  Wayman McGinness.
