Thanksgiving at the Roost Part 1

 We had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration, starting with skeet shooting and a quail hunt. Our cousins from California, the Grutzmachers came into town to spend the holiday with us. I think hunting birds on Thanksgiving was a first for them, but they all caught on very quickly. The Millers, Cooks, and Russells also headed north from Mobile, so all of my dad's side of the fam was in attendance. We all decked out in our hunting gear, loaded up on mules (the man-made kind), and away we went...all 28 of us.
