    Thanksgiving greetings to you all. I'm touched by all your posts. Ejb the loss of your brother-so sorry. I'm sure it takes quite a bit out of you tho think about it. Coffee your quiet moment with your hubby and that potato. Love finds it's beautiful moments. Kloppers enjoying his home grown bounty. BR swamped with his guests knowing that they all will be treated with some of the finest food that can be prepared. Cluckies, ivie, erlibird all probably swamped with dishes but ducking in for a howdoyoudo. And our Ralphie sharing his cool find --hopefully that arrowhead put some food on the table for a family long ago.

    My heart is full and so is my stomach. Men folk are watching football and farting on the couch. I'm so full I can hardly move. But I took the dog for a two mile walk and now her little eyes are shut at grandpa's feet. All the dogs have loved and stayed close to grandpa. Grandma is playing cards with the teenagers and mom is on BYC and soon to be escaping to the quiet basement to find a comfy couch to read my book. Ahhhhh.

    Thanks for sharing your day.

    I have no idea how I missed this, it sometimes seems I do not get the postings until after someone else quotes them,

    EJB, You truly have my prayers and all the good thoughts I can muster up. I have never lost a brother so I cannot say with any honesty I know what it is like. My Wife lost her brother several years ago. I know it was terrible for her. Her pain was apparent to all that knew her. My true condolences.

    Thanks I was very happy and still am over the find. I am hoping to find someone that can tell me more about it. I never thought I would find one here either. When I was a foolish young kid I spent days out walking where my Grandpa dug up those he got, Nothing..nada. ever.

    Then to find it walking to the chicken coop and see it laying on the ground where the chicken had dug it up. Amazing.


    I ate way too much. The smoked turkey was super, if I do say so myself. It actually tasted like high quality ham instead of turkey. We have just enough left to make a huge pot of split pea soup! I have not had my smoker set up in a couple years. I am going to leave it set up now. I hope to do a chicken in it soon.

    The one Judy made was good, but I got the blue ribbon for first place, of course, she may feel differently about this. We did not have cherry pie which is one of my top 3 pies. I think Mince meat and Pecan beat it out though.

    I forgot the mention I added Worchester sauce to my deviled eggs, I would never had done that without your mentioning it,, WOW where they good! It made a different taste without destroying the original taste.. So thanks again for that Idea!

    Please, expand on this. I may have to re-think my plan to talk to the Wildlife refuge Archeologists. It is a federal wildlife refuge that has already stolen 400 acres from my family, we do not need to lose more to them..


    How can they do a "dig" if my house sits on the land?
