Eight hours later, Don Carlos was done! Xin and I posed with him before he was carved. Xin is a Chinese friend that I met in a grammar class (that I took voluntarily) two years ago.
P.S. When you cook your turkey, be sure to remove the bag of giblets. I know every web page with instructions on how to cook at turkey says that, but reading them does not insure that you will. I write from experience. Thankfully, the bag of giblets in Don Carlos was paper, so there was no harm done to the part of the turkey that we actually ate. 🙂 It was amusing to go into the kitchen at the church where the senior pastor was carving Don Carlos to everyone laughing about my turkey and his giblets. We all got a good laugh about it over and over again.
