Yummy…Turkey or Otherwise Entitled: Uncertainties

I would like to start this post out by saying that I may or may not have done any of the following.

First of all, I’ve had a productive day.  I’ve been sewing two matching flower girl dresses for an upcoming wedding.  They are pretty cute so far.  Have I mentioned that I love my old sewing machine?

Then I sat around and watched my new favorite cartoon on YouTube.  I tell you what, I never knew asians could be so funny.  Ever heard of Backkom?  Here’s a couple links to the funniest ones:




So anyways, while I was watching Backkom it was brought to my attention that we might be having a turkey dinner sometime in the near future.  Don’t ask me how I knew, but let me tell you that I may or may not be responsible for the sudden decline of the turkey population in East Tennessee.  (ahem).  Whoops…what I meant was, look at the size of this turkey that my momsie just picked up from the…uh…store.  I was in charge of the butchering.  I would like to take a moment to mention that I’ve never seen a store bought turkey with a shattered leg.  Probably it was killed by some dumb 18 year old girl.  (ahem).  Anyways, I better be going…here are some pictures of what may or may not be our dinner tomorrow.  And I’d like to remind you– despite the overwhelming evidence– I may not have actually killed that turkey.  *I* believe it died of a heart attack.  Not that it’s illegal to shoot a turkey….I’m just antsy from the LAST time I shot something.

    That is one BIG bird! I mean turkey… big bird is yellow and he can talk .. I don't think you'd wan to shoot it for dinner, Or maybe you would since he IS bigger and may have more meat. You think?

    I also wanted to mention how well you handle a gun. Atleast in these photos.

    Good shot!

    Kill it. Clean it. Cook it. Dinner's done!

    You make us all proud, Coie. I feel like I should go do something pioneer-ish right now. I do have a shotgun but no turkeys… maybe I should aim for the dumb dogs that keep tearing into our trash at night instead. Wait, that might be illegal… but that might not really matter if they keep it up…

    To Mrs. Drews,

    I was told that you CAN shoot your own dogs as long as you're not using them for target practice…that was for California, I don't know what Texas or Tennessee is….

  7. Wow – you're tough!

    Holding that honk'n turkey up with one arm!! If I'm ever in the wood around TN again, I'll be sure to leave my feathers at home from fear for my life!

    Nice work. Maybe I'll get you an AK-47 for Christmas you can use to mow down the trees on the back 40.

    lol No offense, but you look funny in your skirt holding a gun and a turkey! But I should be used to my little sisters, wearing sparkles while playing in mud….

    Hope you're having a great week!
