Turkeys/Geese ~ Lazy Stuffed Cabbage ~ Tortilla Chips

Good 26º frozen morning! Wow, it's cold out there!~!!!

Just outside my front yard gate yesterday........

'I'm so pretty.... I'm so pretty .... I'm so pretty and witty and wise.... ' The more effort that goes into the showing off, the bluer the face gets and the redder the waddle gets. "Hey babeeee, look at me!"

And one of the gals was saying, 'Ha ha ha, can't catch me.'

The geese have been showing up at sunrise and sitting atop the barn and honking until I come out and give them a treat.

I noticed yesterday Mr. & Mrs. Mal-lard are back too. So, yesterday morning the geese were on the barn roof and started honking but didn't wait for me to come outside. They flew directly to the 'treat spot'. When I went out there were the ducks also. I guess the geese thought the ducks were getting a treat so they jumped in too. Silly birds.

I've made this several times and it's GOOD!

My aunt was born in 1907 in Cananea Mexico when my grandfather was working down there. Later she could have said she was born in Arizona, since it was a Territory and they didn't start keeping birth records until 1912. But, she was honest and became a 'naturalized citizen' in later years, but did grow up in Arizona in Bisbee. My grandparents were still Scottish citizens, not American. He was a mining engineer for the Lavender Pitt copper mine.
