Speaking of Turkeys.

Marshall Michigan I think the road is N-Drive north. West of I-69 is "Turkeyville USA" Cromwell's Turkey Farm, Restaurant and museum.
If you are in the area when it's open by all means stop in and dine.

Marshall has some History and some fine dining as well.

It is also the home of Progressive Dynamics of Converter fame.


Home is where I park it.

Taint no restrictions here and as large as family gathering as always. No one, in the family, or anyone we know has or had the Chinese Virus. However Wal Mart locally had several cases among some employees but not all, and closed for two or three days for cleaning.
Brother is somewhat concerned because of kidney problems and stays on his 100 acres, all the time, since the scare was announced.
We have not altered schedules or anything, with the exception of leaving our coach in Az and coming home in the Towed, because of concerns about finding open campgrounds. Went and brought it back and home in Sept.
This virus seems to happen in clusters, when someone with it brings it among them, from the outside, like Travelers off the Interstate and into that Wal Mart.
Here in the woods the Virus scare has been a relief, as not so many people, at the beach and on the lakes and river. People are coming from everywhere else and buying and building, including what was the back woods, of my youth, to escape the ant colonies and the problems of such things as this Virus and economy and other things.
We always are looking for greener grass but it is not as green anywhere else as it is here. So we are not worried about the Chicom virus but don't go where there are crowds. Wife does go to the stores. I"m trying to get her to order groceries on line and pick them up or have them delivered 6u6
Thought about large UV lamp,s for the Florescent light fixtures, in the garage where all the groceries and such and most foot traffic comes into the house.
Will it hurt the interior paint of the vehicles?
Only company we have are the deer, and the cats someone dropped off. I know where some skunks are and have a large trap if I find out who did that.
Thinking how I can get partially tamed the youngster Bob Cat we saw and get him or her, to sleep on the porch, to keep anyone else with the Virus, away.
Life is good, and we are not watching the TeeVEE news to make us scardy and miserable.
The turkey will be fresh as usual and about 24 lbs. Cost more but I'm worth it for family. Maybe as noted in the first post they will be cheaper.
I would like to hunt one for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but not here in the yard, sorta. May anyway but not shoot anything.

I hope everyone here has a Happy Thanksgiving not worrying and not worrying about getting bit by the Chicom bug.
Turkey and cornbread sage stuffing, lots of cranberry sauce, smashed taters, candid yams, good green beans, pumpkin and sweet tater pies, apple and cherry pies, and cherry cheesecake, pecan pies,lemon pie homemade breads. But most of all I hope everyone has a smile and good time around the feast and all the youngins keep you up real late with laughter, playing cards and games and tricks on the ole Folks.
Can't eat it all. one bite from each dish will fill me. But good no great times with the whole family. Wish Mon and Dad was still here to sit back and just enjoy it lie they use to.

If the much abused promise of a stimulus check comes through I intend to buy a 10 CF chest freezer. Then fill it for July turkey, January blueberries, and ajune pumpkin pie. I don't know why Rhubarb pie is so hard to find in the San Diego area. Also a question. Can mind altering strength of Tule Lake horseradish keep its strength frozen?

Here is a question.....
One of the folks I follow on Facebook mentioned he met a man who said thanks to this Virus his business has Trippled.

Anyone care to guess his profession. And no he his not a doctor or other medical professional. (I will give you that much help)

With Thanksgiving approaching there have been the usual turkey-related articles, but one caught his attention. It seems the cancellation of the Renaissance fairs has caused a glut of turkeys.


Yeah, there’s a glut of turkeys around here too. There was a big flock in the field out back when I went out this morning, I lost count at 70 birds.
