    SIL helped dh outside with the 'head off' and picking off the feathers while I cleaned the inside out, setting the clean birds into clean water, although I was very tired on the fourth bird. Then SIL used the propane torch to burn the pin feathers off the birds and clean them up more. And the birds all fit into the freezer.

    We celebrated with Pork roast, mashed potatoes, baked beans, and tossed salad for lunch. Baked brownies for afternoon snack. Tomorrow it will be Grandma's tenderloin and T-bone steak. In the morning, duck omelets with kale in the omelet. Duck is selling here for $2.45 a pound for Thanksgiving. So more ducks on the list for next year (maybe a White Campbell Walking Duck). Would love to try a Tur-Chi-Duc package, its a turkey, stuffed with a duck and a chicken and dressing.

    Lots of chatter again. I like the WIP idea QE. I have soooo many to finish.
    Another beauty from Down Under, mirabelle!
    Nice blocks for you little Christmas runner, too, Carrie.
    Now QNS, that's not just an ordinary red car. That's Lightning McQueen. 2 yo Sam loves LMcQ. He brought his car down last week ( I think he sleeps with it) and lost it here--have searched high and low. Thank goodness he has his small tractors for backup!
    A very full day here. We scored our cows again today. Two new Excellents and 3 Ex 90 cows now scored 91, 91, and 92. The pair of 91's are maternal sisters out of a 90 pt dam. Doubly nice. Then after dinner had a wedding to go to--neighbor's daughter so a short trip to town.
    Don't worry spider.

    Love Sunbonnet Sue, Dublb, and love the colors of it too. Oh, for a gd..... but its not to be here.
    Yes, Mirabelle, I loved your Baltimore quilt...excellent job.

    Honchey, good luck on your tree trimming to clean up the mess there.

    OKsewGlad, the report should bring smiles to the family of a well earned score with the cows. Ok, the cars are special, the only car print our Wal Mart had...for the cost of a couple of yard of the red and couple of yards of blue, made a happy four year old. LA operator did not charge me for the quilting. I tried the 1 5/8 strip, and 1 3/8 strip sewed together for the binding and it was quick.

    QNSue ... how special you are to "whip" up the quilt for your DGS! I'm sure he'll treasure it for a long time to come. sometimes the simplest things are all it takes.

    DublB ... great fabric mix and glad that your friend likes what you are doing.

    OKSGlad
    ... that's EXCELLENT news! And great too, that two are the same cow family. Was their Dam, Excellent too? I'm sure everyone is quite happy with this classification round!!!! Time to party and celebrate.

    I did not make any choices in this quilt. (But isn't it lovely???) The Sue's were made & quilted by the lady's DM who died 10 years ago. I'm not gonna make any more blocks, just join 'em tagether. I'm even usein' the fabric that the lady's DM had for it. She had 32 blocks made & quilted. Lookin' at her notes she had planned ta make it 9 blocks x 7 blocks. I'm just gonna complete it w/what is there & make it 5x6. I'm thinkin' about makin' borders for it, (If the lady likes the idea.)
