HistoryBuff: I'm sure you could use the rest. AY.
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 :?
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.
AYWalton: Well, I better run, folks. Have a great day everyone.
Daviss: hey, I did stuff alt
Seventies Soulchild: here Daviss goes... lol
alt: okay....... stuff LOL
Seventies Soulchild: lol yes cut the onions! lol

Seventies Soulchild: They didn't say you didn't do anything, just only ONE thing! lol lol lol
