Baby Turkeys & Deer ~ Big Moon ~ Weinerschnitzel


Good 55º morning. Hit 100º yesterday. I know I know,
got cr*p from some who have been suffering in the
100+ teens temps and I'm sorry, I'm whining about our miserable little single digit + 100º temps. That's just me.
I like COLD weather!

Yesterday baby turkeys were everywhere in the morning..

I attended the the JCRW luncheon. Chicken Parmesan was awesome! Sal Esquivel was our speaker. He's our state representative for Medford. Fun listening to his take on Salem!

After lunch I went to Costco, then Ace, Rays Market, and home.
Last evening the deer were out...

There is a grapevine on the side of the house and they
love the leaves!

The moon came out about 7pm... took this at 7:25....

While I was out taking pictures of the moon, Maggie was
happily napping in the grass. Tried to get her picture,
but she saw me. A little out of focus problem as it was
getting dark and I didn't use a better setting..

Wienerschnitzel Day
If you're not familiar, Wiener Schnitzel is a boneless veal cutlet that is breaded and fried, somewhat like chicken fried steak. In fact, it was German and Austrian immigrants to the US who gave us the chicken fried steak. Consider adding it to your menu today, Wienerschnitzel Day!
