AYWalton: oh yes, indeed!

Seventies Soulchild: It must be good to have it like that. :-)

AYWalton: My feet are enjoying not standing up at the stove in the kitchen cooking.

Seventies Soulchild: :) Look we were supposed to have fried Turkey last night for and the fryer caught on fire! LOL

Daviss: Selma did you bring a turkey sammich home to eat later :?

HistoryBuff: lol

AYWalton: oh gracious, SoulChile!

Selma: No Daviss...there were so many of us we just about killed the turkey.. LOL..but she did send us home with all the other stuff...

AYWalton: I hope nobody was hurt!

HistoryBuff: Oh no.

alt: I think C-Span3 is re-running the Ft. Monroe/contraband story today.. it was on here earlier this morning.

AYWalton: I have never been excited about the turkey fryer thing. I have heard about fired.

Seventies Soulchild: No it was out in the middle of the yard.... but the flame was high... freaked some of the family out.

AYWalton: glad it was not near the house and that no one was hurt.

Seventies Soulchild: Then also, it was peanut oil so that fire had to be hot...

Daviss: we have an electric turkey fryer

Selma: We had at least local reports on our TV stations last week, about exactly how to fry the turkey..cause so many folks burn down their houses

AYWalton: Was the meal affected by the fire?

Seventies Soulchild: No, there was a smoked turkey... food was delicious

AYWalton: Which is why I am afraid of them. Turkey fryers and pressure cookers are out of my league. that's good, SoulChile.

HistoryBuff: Oh wow AYWalton.

AYWalton: I stick to the stove and the oven---two devices I understand.

Seventies Soulchild: Yes we had those on TV all the time as well. First thing, never put the fryer in an enclosed space or next to your house I cooked a turkey breast and sides here for the next couple of days to eat on.

Daviss: I watched a channel 8 movie last night on the role of the Indian in the movies and how that got started. It was very interesting

HistoryBuff: Which station is your Channel 8, Daviss?

Daviss: oops sorry I should have said PBS station

Seventies Soulchild: Movies are a very powerful form of medica media

HistoryBuff: Oh okay thanks, Daviss. I look forward to looking into that story. Yes they are indeed, Seventies.

Daviss: I did not get to see any football games yesterday. The kids took charge of the t v

AYWalton: I will see if I can find the program.

HistoryBuff: Thank you Alt. I bookmarked the Cspan3 story on Fort Monroe, VA.

AYWalton: thankfully I did not watch any TV yesterday at all. First I was too busy, then later I was too tired.

Daviss: kids claimed I only cut up onions lol

alt: yw HistoryBuff, I think the professor does a great job of explaining the role of the tree guys who went to Gen. Butler and started the Contraband issue.

Seventies Soulchild: LOL I believe it Daviss!

AYWalton: Did they talk about what happened to the three guys? Townsend, Baker and Mallory. I often wonder what happened to them and/or their families after the war. I hope they did survive the war, but have never found them in Ancestry. And I have looked for them.

alt: I saw where they said you were AWOL when it came to 'da cooking' Daviss

HistoryBuff: Yes, I learned that story in docent training. I love being able to acquire this history in writing. wb Daviss.
