I do have Friday off. I just hope I can make it in tomorrow through Wednesday. I have an echo-cardiogram tomorrow and am being put on a 24 hr. monitor.
I picked up the turkey today - 33 1/2 lbs. I brought my youngest son, John Man, with me to carry the bird back to the van. I never noticed until today - the farm we buy from was established by and has remained in the hands of the Iager family since 1839. My father started buying fresh turkeys from them when we moved to this area over forty years ago. During the Reagan Administration they supplied turkeys to the White House.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)
