We do not shoot (kill, to be specific) TURKEYS!!!!

I LOVE TURKEYS!!!!! Maybe I can catch them and take them home as pets! Anyone want to help me take my pets home?

So that is why you want a larger darkroom.

Now Sue loves Turkeys, birds of all kinds actually, but we go out looking for Turkeys down in Vinton County down by Hocking hills park. Over 85 in one hour we spotted once. Hopefully she does not catch you roping and riding a turkey to catch it and take it home. I'll let her know you have some on the property and I'm certain she will go a lookN.

Oh not just on our property. The Girls and I saw thirty turkeys together in a family group one day a few weeks ago at the entrance to Oak Hill Trail about four miles north east from the house. That is the trail where Lee L and Dorothy shot around the lovely Sylvan lake.

Yeah, I was shooting a 180mm and Dorothy was shooting a 75mm, but we didn't bag any turkeys. Maybe this year...

Eva, how does Jeff feel about turkey bacon? Or maybe turkey bacon ice cream...

Good news that you will be here.
It has been too long without a Dorothy fix.

Broke must be contagious.
It precedes you.

Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, or something.

Be great to see you again. We will also be there Friday - Sunday.

Hey, We will also be there Friday - Sunday.

Jeff, looking forward to seeing you and Eva. Don’t let Eva talk to Cindy, my huntress, about the Turkeys!!! It could get ugly. They have strong differences of opinion.

Just heard from Lee L. He will be with us Fri-Sun and says Shawn will also be here at least Saturday. They are going to shoot in the Park Saturday so if someone would rather go there than the Flats, speak to them. Glad you are coming. The party is pulling together.

Safety Request:

In the past we have had wood for a fire in the camping area. To my knowledge this was only used once. It has been so dry the last six weeks that we are going to ask that you not have a fire this time. The pond water level is down at least a foot and grass and trees are at about tinder level. We would hate to lose the many beautiful blue spruce, our houses and oh, the occasional guest. Please also be careful that you do not park you catalytic converts over tall grass.

This part is not meant as a mixed message. We are going to put three five gallon jerry cans filled with water in the camping area for your safety in the event of an accidental fire. They are not meant as an invitation to start one. If more water is needed there is a hose and faucet on the house wall just behind the grill, near the back deck. Historically 911 service has gotten here in 90 seconds.

If anyone wants to roast a turkey that they happen to meet, please deliver it cleaned to the kitchen. We can roast it in the oven for a share of the meal. Cranberry sauce is already in the refrigerator.

John, Dolly and the Girls

:) Eva loves her turkeys. She still thinks they can fly, bless her heart.

I've got the requested enlargers and densitometers boxed up. There are still a couple of enlargers available, including a pair of Beseler 23s with condenser heads and carriers. Also, those fiber dryers as well.

BTW - I've got a Aristo D2 head for an Omega D series enlarger available for sale. Works fine, older bulb. Replacement bulbs are now available again through Aristo - and the replacements are the newer style bulbs as well. Looking to get $50 for this - let me know if you are interested.

"john,

Darla will probably tag along with me. I too have decided not to go the flats as much as I like that kinda thing, but that train affair looks interesting, and some things in the park need much better attention than I gave them on my first visit.

We plan on heading to the coast north of Boston, then just meandering up the coast to the little town of Lubic, right at the border. Have enjoyed the little towns on the way in the past, and just hope for the right weather cooperates to create some images.

I also will mention if there are any shooters out there who shot 220 in black and white, my freezer needs some attention, i have 5 rolls of TXP320 dated 11/09, and 12 rolls of HP5 dated 2/06. All should shoot fine, they have been in my freezer since there arrival here. I have not shot any medium format in over a year, so the possibility of me using them is quite slim. Not sure what the going price is, but I would be happy with $10.00 per roll. If anyone is interested let me know.

Will plan on seeing you Friday evening.

Jim Thompson"

If you are interested PM me and I will send you his phone number. Do this before Thursday afternoon as he will probably be driving most of Friday from the Kalamazoo area.

Dan, have you and Jim met?

Is there any doubt? On a hike in the park, going through a stand of pine trees, there was an explosion to the side of the trail. A full grown turkey flew by horizontally at ten feet. Cindy flew by right behind it at about six feet.

At this point I'm planning on showing up sometime Friday (will be after dinner for sure). I can only stay one night so I'll just sleep in the car and Lee and I will be off early Sat I'm sure. Back to see everyone for dinner Sat and then I have to head home. Looking forward to it, wish I could stay for Sunday...

John: if the annotation to this message was meant for me, no I have not had the pleasure of meeting Jim Thompson.

By the way, Eva, turkeys can fly. Sort of. For short distances. When suitably startled. I startled one last weekend and saw it fly...well, maybe it launched itself into space, realized that its wings were no match for its weight and gravity, and crashed back to earth.
