Turkey Legs and Full Names

Every year for the Fourth of July, I get the smoked, giant turkey legs to take with us to watch the county fireworks. Last year, I missed the chance to get them because the owner of the best smoked Turkey legs in town closed his store early due to a lack of business. We were so bummed. This year I called at what I thought would be "early" enough time and the store was already closed for the day. AAARRRGGGG! One of the owners was there in the store and agreed to give me legs that were cooked, but not hot. They would need to be warmed up. She told me to meet her at the back of the store in 20 minutes. It sounded very clandestined, but those legs are so worth it for this once a year treat. I was able to get our turkey legs and she gave me some extra sauce on the side. Yum!

While in the car I was quizzing the kids on their vital information: full names, address, phone number, birth date. When I asked my 6 yr old foster daughter her info, she stated her full name as, "first name, our last name, and our homeschool name".  It was very funny... I guess we should work on that this summer.

Wow, illicit turkey legs! LOL! Sounds like an *ahem* 'deal' being made.

I'm with Essie but if they are as good as you say they'd be worth the time in the pokey. :)
