We had chicken and dressing for Thanksgiving dinner. The chicken was good. The dressing was not.

This morning I walked out to the corner past Callen's branch.  I think that is about 2.5 miles.  So, I guess I walked 5 miles.   I did not see anything except a bunch of cows, one bull and some quail.  Not even a squirrel.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving

at the Aday home.  Lane will not get to come home for Thanksgiving, according to George, so I am having Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow afternoon.

George has brush hogged the pasture on Helen's side of the field and we have been seeing deer on the salt blocks every evening.  Tonight George counted 7 or 8.
