This one's for Dennis
Okay, the rest of us are just looking at two turkeys: one dead and the other still strutting. I'm supposed to tell you that the dead one had 1" spurs, an 11" beard, and weighed 20.5 lbs. The live one wasn't wearing spurs, was beardless, and I won't hazard a guess on weight. We like to stay on his good side-especially when he's toting a gun. Is it happy hunting or Happy Thanksgiving?
Milk dud report: they're almost done planting oats and no neighbors called today about cows straying into greener pastures. I guess that means the fencing is coming along well. So far things are working out well with milking on one farm. Kenton's really enjoying not having to be in the barn in the evenings. Not that we at home have seen a lot of him, but he's getting a lot done. Domingo and Brent are starting chores around 3:15 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. It makes for earlier mornings, but frees up the evenings slightly.
