This morning Pure Luck took the dogs out for a walk at the Posh Neighboring Town Nature Preserve. He reported that they were frisky right out of the car, running wildly through the woods as if someone *very* interesting had been there ahead of them.
They had been out and around on one of the trails and were heading back when all of them noticed movement along the fenceline bordering the preserve. Molly took off and Pure Luck barely managed to grab Sam as they all saw an impressive buck and his does running by.
Molly, who tires faster and was already well-exercised, came back.
Sam looked disappointed still when they returned home, and I could swear he was telling me, "Mom, I really tried to get my deer! I know I could have gotten one! I know it!"
Later, at dinner, we heard that one of the young cousins is going to her boyfriend’s house tomorrow for a second Thanksgiving celebration, where they will be serving a Turducken. I had to ask what in the world that was?
Someone patiently explained.
When they were finished, #1 Son said, "I’m waiting for a HorsePigEn."
