Turkeys at Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving turkeys in the apple trees
We celebrated Thanksgiving on Friday. Its a bit of a long story, but here goes. The kitchen stove's oven failed earlier this month. That stove was 27 years old so something like this had to be expected. The hassle began with the fact that we finally put an upscale counter top on kitchen base cabinets I made in the dark ages. The old stove was only 24 inches wide, and the existing opening in the new counter top would only allow us to buy a stove of the same width. We ended up special ordering a new stove through a local dealer. A projected delivery date based on a 7 to 10 day wait, naturally stretched longer. The new stove arrived at 5:00 on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. My installer arrived Friday morning at 7:30 AM.
Luckily the new stove was quickly hooked up. I started making stuffing around 10-ish. The turkey went in the oven at noon. As I was killing a little time typing the Thanksgiving greeting written in the previous post, I looked up out the window and saw a flock of wild turkeys marching across the field immediately behind the house. I yelled for Ann to come take a look. She snapped this photo with her phone. I counted over twenty birds in the group. The turkeys seem to have a circular route which they follow when searching for food, which brings them by on a regular interval.
Thanks for stopping by. STB
