Turkey day. Cooled down a bit last night, 29 this morning and I'm off to pick up our turkey. Cross the Snake and scare the mud hens.
The bird's a snug fit in a 5 gal bucket.
About 100 years ago Ridgeview was established on the east side of the Snake River. There was a cable ferry and sheep and pigs would be driven east through Roswell to the rail-head in Parma. Ridgevew didn't grow any bigger than the old mercantile / post office because the new railroad came down the west side of the river. The post office was moved across to the new Ridgeview, soon renamed Adrian.
I hear my Babe, who was baking pies and cheesecake most of yesterday, calling from the kitchen, "Hon, will you run to town and pick up a couple bags of spuds?"
I wish you all a good turkey day and heartburn free night. .
