Avatar 9:51am dale:

up near mt. hope transmitter, yes. the snowcover was so dense and long lasting the deer and turkeys came to eat birdseed that fell from feeders. then i felt bad and started feeding corn (illegal to feed deer, i know). turkeys have been a joy to watch, especially the two males who are showing off how sexy they are to the ladies. now that it's warming up they are starting to go away.

I eat store-bought garlic naan, but haven't had onion kulcha in a sad stretch of forever because I almost never eat Indian food out any more. Life is hard and the way is long.
