Beautiful tree.

Wife decided to get a shorter one this year that can sit on the dining room table.

And instead of Santa she uses this Christmas dwarf.

There are four in that building now. There were 11 a few weeks ago. There's another 3 with a flock of pullets and all but 2 flocks free range together every day. 9 mature cockerels/roosters currently.

While they're free ranging, they develop muscles and flavor.

2 things I discovered is that they need to be allowed to rest for several days before freezing or eating and they need to cook on low heat for a long time (till the meat starts falling off the bone.

That, but also because commercial Cornish/Rocks are only 6 weeks old. Roosters I butcher are usually about 5 months old.

Last night was the coldest so far but Saturday and Sunday are going to be a bear. We're going from 50F Saturday day to 5F overnight. 3F Sunday night.

You really should go see it. When you do stop by for a cup of coffee.

 

That's cause kids were a lot tougher 50 yrs ago :P

 

I say make them go to school. Only delays they should do would be for snow.

And 50+ years ago we had to walk to school uphill, both ways.

 

We were a long way from my school and in the morning, I rode the public bus. After school, I walked home.

.....

We are supposed to drop down to about 0 for Friday and they are calling for weather in the 50 for Saturday.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

Agreed. I'd just scrape it off and eat it... Oreos are too rare a treat to waste.

The only thing dumb enough to be out in that weather is an idgit like me. Any self-respecting deer is laid up out of the wind, where they'll stay 'til it calms down. The heater can't keep up in this wind, & those windows ain't near air-tight.

giggles.... yeppers them deer are on a protected side of a ravine that they can bed down and feel the sun on um!

I've seen old deer and I've seen dumb deer, but I've never seen an old dumb deer.

That's true. I've had youngsters close enough to kick that weren't smart enough to run away.

Before I converted my black powder rifle to take 209 shotgun primers instead of those itty-bitty primers it was designed for, I had a doe standing cross-ways in the lane, <100' from the front door, staring right at me. I walked back into the house, grabbed the gun & went back out to where I'd been...she was still standing there. I raised the gun, picked her up in the scope, & pulled the trigger, it didn't fire, While she watched, I loaded another primer, which also failed to fire. I went back after more primers, and she was walking along the fence line. I followed her at a distance, thinking she might cross back to my side. When she did, I fired a third time, and anchored her in her tracks. Definitely from the shallow end of the gene pool, and a shoe-in for the Darwin award.
