I don't know about you, but I sure can't wait much longer for what is probably my favorite dinner of the whole year!!!! And I'm even more thankful for a three day week! I'll be off two days this week, and I'll head to the ancestral home for the big dinner. I was thinking, we always see turkeys this time of year, but what about the other beautiful bird of autumn....the pheasant! They really are quite stunning, I have seen several around here. But did you know, the males like always are the most stunning? They also have very keen eye sight and hearing, and can fly up to 35 mph? They can also run over 10 mph, so they apparently have very strong legs. I have never eaten pheasant. The less animals I can eat the better, so I'll stick to me once a year turkey and my chicken, ha, ha!!!
