Dog Door Darting. Frozen Turkey. Wheel Wells.

NOW is the time to teach your pet not to dart out of an open door, BEFORE all the hubbub of the holidays.


Thawing Frozen Turkeys:
Immediately after grocery store checkout, take the frozen turkey home and store it in the freezer until ready to use. Frozen turkeys should not be thawed on the back porch, in the car trunk, in the basement or on the kitchen counter.
 Refrigerator Thawing
When thawing a turkey in the refrigerator, there are several variables to take into account:
  • Plan ahead: allow approximately 24 hours for every 5 pounds in a refrigerator set at 40 °F.
Refrigerator Thawing Times
(Whole turkey)
  • 8 to 12 pounds..........1 to 2 days
  • 12 to 16 pounds..........2 to 3 days
  • 16 to 20 pounds..........3 to 4 days
  • 20 to 24 pounds..........4 to 5 days

If you can't defrost your turkey in the fridge:


Paco and Misty went with me to pick up Jay, and we had a little walk around there, down by the lake.

Jay and I cut down the old wheel wells, as it will make more storage room under the dinette, and there is plenty of room for the wheels.

Then we made, and attached, a frame around each one.  These will be screwed down to the floor and weather proofed from underneath.

It is such nice weather that the cats are out on the porch, sunning themselves today.
