Will we be the only ones spending the first few hours of the day sitting in a tree?
In our case we found a fair stand, a good hundred trees over about 25 acres, of swamp chestnut oaks ( only a few are dropping nuts this year, and those not many ) and marked a couple of spots to carry the climbers to in the morning.
And for this opportunity we give thanks, not just to this Free Country ( not as free as it used to be but we're working on that ) but also to our friends Scott and Michelle who're doing the cooking this year. Hopefully we'll arrive at their house with not just a couple of bushels of oysters, the salmon and the shrimp but also with a little blood on the truck.
Happy Thanksgiving indeed!
