Today we leave Greenbush and drive back to Chicago. I sit here enjoying the pale dawn in the woods, turkeys roaming around the yard, and the cool sweet air coming in the window.
This is the bird Benjamin Franklin wanted as our national bird rather than the eagle!
Yesterday we enjoyed a mid-afternoon dinner at the Log Cabin restaurant in Howard’s Grove. The special of the day was pork hocks and sauerkraut, which Don and Sandy dined on. However, Jean and I couldn’t pass up the walleye dinner. It was terrific and I have one filet left over for breakfast this morning! I finished my meal with a slab of poppy seed torte.
Now it is time to pack the car and be off. Don and Sandy must head to Lake Winnebago to pull in their boat for the winter. Cold weather looms in this part of the country, but not as early as it did when I lived here 30 years ago. Global warming is a reality!
My friends, Benjamin Franklin was certainly a wise man, not mentioning the fact that a turkey is certainly less warmongering than an eagle, albeit a bald one.
Keep enjoying and best wishes of course
