This is David & Susan Sifford's journal of what we pray is our sojourn of life (Hebrews 11:8-10) along the narrow way (Matt 7:14), even the old paths (Jeremiah 6:16), submitting to the Bible as a light unto both (Psalms 119:105). It is our prayer that these documented moments in our earthly time benefit whom God might choose to edify, but ultimately that God glorifies Himself through them.

Trina the Turkey Gets Her New Beau Hank

After Trina the Spanish black heritage turkey showed up at our homestead one day, we were hoping to obtain a mate for her, to perhaps breed, but so also she wasn’t alone.

Well, it just so happened that Heritage Road Farm , which is fairly close in our region, breeds heritage turkeys! So, we contacted them, and they graciously met us in Brownwood with this tom turkey, which because Ankara is the capital of Turkey, we decided to call Hank!

Hank the Heritage Tom Turkey

And here is a video of the big meet between them!

After this, Hank spent at least a couple of weeks following her around flared up like that, but has settled in a little more now, but still follows her around. 🙂

We’re thankful to be able to have Hank here for Trina, and we pray they are beneficial to the homestead and the community!

    Hi Mrs. Stonger,

    Ha! Sorry to put you all under such pressure. 😉

    Until then, they can certainly come visit and look at them any time they want. 🙂

    Hi bayougirl,

    I'd be surprised, but perhaps, if the Lord wills. 🙂

    Thanks for saying hi!
