Today we celebrated my mother's 87th birthday. My youngest brother and his wife did a real good job hosting the party. Ralph printed a poster size picture of mother for her birthday. Mother was very happy and seemed to enjoy the party.
After we visited with her a while we drove over to Palestine to pick up the turkey. Sarah had it caught and caged by the time we got there. She is very good with farm animals. She knew it would be best to catch and cage the turkey alone without an audience of strangers which would just stir up the turkeys. We have him in the shed for the night and will dress him out tomorrow. The kids seem to be looking forward to that process. It is 38 degrees outside right now and I have heard that kind of temperature "hog killing weather." In our case it will be a turkey.
