While my husband has been in afghanistan, serving our country, I've been at home, doing all the things he'd never have let me do if he'd been home... like buying turkey chicks, and meaties etc.. Anyway, everyone in the family has been under strict orders to NOT tell DH about any of these poultry experiments. Anyway, DH called today, after a really, scary mission, and we were just chatting, trying to make things feel as normal as possible, and he mentioned that he might like to try one of those 'birds in the freezer'! Turns out BIL spilled the beans when DH mentioned he was thinking about getting meat birds this next spring, but was unsure how I (a vegetarian) would handle it... so funny! I did it this year so he could benefit firsthand from our chickens, and maybe he'd hate them less... and now we're discussing fencing and planning for next spring! He'll be home before christmas!
