Not your "average" deer...
I took this pic of one of the dozen or so free range male elks that reside behind us. This guy is big, probably pushing 600 or more pounds...I'm guessing he is easily five feet or more at the shoulders, quite a magnificant specimen of wildlife! I also was able to get another shot of this guy and his buddy, see my new Windee Acres Farm back drop picture at the top of my blog.
We were blessed to be able to celebrate our Thanksgiving today with our son and his girlfriend. Jan out did herself once again and made an outstanding feast of turkey, green bean casserole, butternut squash, corn pudding (all of which came from our garden..except the turkey :-)), mashed potatoes and stuffing, not to mention her "impossibly easy" pumpkin pie which I plan to sample later tonight!
This year, Jan brined the turkey with hard cider and it was sooooo moist, more so than I can ever remember...Kudo's to Jan for another wonderful dinner!
Life is good!
