Thanksgiving

he Grill Meister is ready!  We are having two fresh, cage-free, organically-fed Turkey breasts and one free-range, acorn fed, formerly happy Venison hindquarter  (humanely shot in the left ear at a distance of 25 yards in the pristine totally organic, green, environmentally- friendly back pasture) all cooked on the Big Green Egg.  Since we are eating at 3pm, I will prepare pheasant and grouse tasties, at noon, for the hungry ones in the crowd.  All of this will be enjoyed with a Southern liquid, flavored with an organic sweetener made from Iowa corn.  (The recipe for the concoction is stored in a vault in the Coca-Cola tower in Atlanta, GA), and a dessert consisting of Pecan Pie (pecans from from Milner, GA) and ice cream made from contented Georgia cows.  Or, as my neighbor likes to put it, "Dude, we're having grilled deer meat and turkey with Coke and Pecan Pie!"

Did you ever want to go to San Diego?

Now you don't have to get on that big Delta jet and fly there!  For the last four days you have had the exact same weather all those lucky Californians get every day of the year. Cool mornings with a little fog in the low areas, warming up to the high seventies in the afternoon and dry as an old bone.

I'm thinking we need to just sit back and enjoy.  The weather guesser says rain on the way by Monday.  I'm thinking the cold will catch up to us soon....

Don't Like Our Weather?

North Dakota Blizzard October 2010
This is what I saw two weeks ago in North Dakota while pheasant hunting. I was crazy enough to go out in the wind and hunt!  (Believe it or not, I had a pretty good day.)  I thought blizzards were like what you see on TV, with snow up to the rafters.  It can be like that, but in this part of North Dakota, only 4 inches of snow came down- and it all came down sideways! AND, to my surprise, the farmers were loving it!  Moisture is moisture for the crops, whether snow or rain.

Compare that day to our day today (11/9/10)- 70's and sunny...WOW... no comparison! I love this place!!!!
