Happy Thanksgiving!

 Turkey standing on fence

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American visitors!!

Yep, wild turkeys CAN fly. In fact they roost in trees at night.  This turkey flew to the top of this fence to get a better view...and perhaps find some bird seed left for chickadees and blue jays.


The above label translates to approximately $2.50 per pound. My sister-in-law in New York State bought her turkey for $.42 a pound...but I doubt it was a Butterball.  Did you purchase a turkey and, if so, how much did you pay per pound?

But wait! For the next few weeks we in Canada can earn $1 towards our Christmas turkey for every $30 we spend at our local grocery store. To save for that $68 turkey all I have to spend is $2,040 or an average of $508 a week!  Is that a deal or what?!!

Pass me a Drumstick, please.

B is for BRICK

Brick is a common construction material in south-central Ontario. Although many of the older farmhouses here were made of yellow brick (the colour of the clay found in our area)...

 some of the older homes are red.

Bricks are also made of concrete. The church's brick may be coloured concrete, which is much harder than clay.

South of the border (the Canadian border, that is), nineteenth-century builders must have found clay plentiful too.
