On Labor Day, Monday, Stanley and I had an experience we hadn’t done for years. We were involved in the butchering of 2 roosters of our grandson David. He had 3 roosters, which seemed to be too many for the number of chickens and the crowing of 3 roosters at 5:15am each morning! So 2 of them got butchered. Next morning, David said the one rooster had crowed as much as the three had. Guess the one rooster thought he had to make up for the others. David and Tiffany also visited with his parents, Steve and Gina Droege. Grand dogs, Daisy and Reo came along to spend time with Buster.
