Tu me it wuz eggsiting !! For me it's getting to know you and ebrybuddy dey intervyoo. I dunt needs to be "entertained" to be rivited bai sumbuddy's thoughts, life, etc. My intervyoo put peepols to sleep, aifinkso. lol!
The turkey turned out pretty well but I got carried away with the smoke early on. It turned the skin very dark very quickly. It wasn't burned...just dark. I'm going to try another one to improve upon it. The flavor of the meat itself was very good. Between the brine and the smoke it was very mpiost and tasty. I thought you did a great job with your interview. It's funny how we think about those things as there are three different versions. There's the piece we prepare in our heads before, the one we actually do and the one we create in our minds after the fact. The one we all got to see was very well done. I'm encouraged to hear that your weather report isn't quite as dire as it was earlier. My Atlanta friends have written me complaining about their mid-seventy temps...what a diverse set of climates right now. I hear they're about to get it though. Stay safe and warm. We're headed out for our walk.
Sounds like we both kind of have the same weather thing going. Our cold spell is supposed to last through the weekend so all that snow and ice not going anywhere. We got about 4 inches which is not too bad. Our bird feeder has been well used today too and Bryan and to fill it back up this afternoon. I think they all invited their friends :) We even saw a Northern Flicker (I think) - didn't think they were here in the winter. Good that they give you some time to respond so you can make sure of what you want to say knowing that a lot of peeps will be reading it.
I suspect that the worst part of the "ordeal" for Becky was that she missed out on two meals. She's back on track today and much happier as a result. She's been getting some turkey scraps too which she really loves. Becky really enjoyed the butt skritch and hed bonk. I guess when you've been warned to expect 5-6 days without power, a few hours without seems like hardly a blip. I'd love to think that exempts you from a recurrence for the duration but I doubt it will work out that way. I hope there's no reason for you or Chuck to be out on the roads. It doesn't sound pleasant at all. I think I'd opt for bird feeding, too. Oh...congrats on your featured user segment...well done and overdue.
Good to hear your heat is back. I have propane heat with a very good old Warm Morning heater. I only lit my stove two weeks ago so I have a good supply out there. The thermostat is manual so of the electricity goes I will still be able to adjust the temperature inside. We haven't lost electricity yet, and I'm hoping we don't. My house is old, and I have enough kerosene lamps for every room if I needed them. .This kind of weather is nothing new to me, but that doesn't mean I like it. LOL! I think we're supposed to have more freezing rain on Sunday. I'll have tomorrow to get to town and get pet supplies. That's what really concerns me. I can make do for myself. We're survivors you know. Hugs, Linda
Are y'all okay over there? We've got sleet, snow, and ice all over everything. It's colder than a well digger's a** in January here. I finally got all the furkids and The herd fed and watered so I don't have to go back outside tonight. Take care and stay safe. Hugs, Linda (wally01)
Whoop! Grabs Opus and spins him around :) Congrats on being a featured user - great interview! left a comment in moderation. Yep, the nitty gritty message got lost in the ether. At any rate, glad you are still with power for now and I hope it doesn't get any worse. I am getting ready to get off and finish the rest of the cookies. Yep been snowing since early morning and it is very, very cold so it will stick aroud for a few days. Be back later I hope if I don't get sidetracked like I did yesterday I need 2 of me LOL
Checking to see if you're on and I suspect the ice storm has knocked out your power. Sounds Like Arkansas really got hit bad. Hope you, Chuck and Elf are hunkered down and comfy. And the power comes on before football Sunday :) Warming hugz
