Yep, Thanksgiving is just around the corner and as such we'll be playing around with the giblets. Not my favorite part of the turkey but some people actually enjoy them. Starting with the word GIBLETS, change one letter, and in most cases anagram, to find the answers to these clues.

-1. vesicle
-2. sparkle
-3. part of a brush
-4. this flower
-5. skill, as with a magician's hands
-6. of maximum size
-7. Does as someone asks in order to please them
-8. "What's Eating ------- Grape?"
-9. drinking glasses with a foot and a stem
-10. defensive football tactics attempting to sack the quarterback (b------)
-11. most hideous
-12. prickles
-13. plant diseases, especially those caused by fungi such as mildews, rusts, and smuts
-14. outwitting
-15. cartilage

Good answers grin wave

I guess it would help if I showed you the flower for #4 lol

Jema, I take it you've seen Gilbert Grape. What did you think about it? Johnny Depp was pretty young and Leonardo DiCaprio did an excellent job with his character.

Mrs. Cue rented it from Redbox. She knows I'm a big Johnny Depp fan. I thought it was worth the watch.

Added hints for the last few.
