Yesterday we butchered our 4 turkeys. The weather forecast is for 15 degrees for the next few days. We didn't weigh them but they must be about 20 pounds each.
and after.

Mom cooked up one of them last night so we will probably have one today.

that is all,

Good time with the Kenney family


Today the Kenney family left after spending a few days with us. They came up from Hawley MN to visit for Thanksgiving. We had a fun time with them. Daniel Kenney had recently gotten what is called a rip-stick and brought it along with them. You probably have never seen one but it is like a skateboard but only has two wheels and twists in the middle. You can make yourself go forward by moving the rip-stick back and forth. You can steer by twisting it in the middle as you go forward. It takes a lot of practice to run it without falling over. You pretty much have to move your whole body when you do it. I played with that quite a bit so I tried playing guitar while doing it.

Here's a video clip of a potato cannon that Grandpa Bartlett helped us build when he came this fall. This video is of us shooting it in the dark.

We've been having some pretty nice days recently. Around 55-60 degrees. It's hard to think it is November already. Yesterday we went and helped some Friends of ours put up a new TV antenna. It was on a tower about 30' high. Thankfully I didn't have to go up. The picture shows the old one that we took down.

While we were there we saw a bald eagle over their lake.

Here's a cutting board that I just made for Mom!

I'm feeling tired so my post is short.
