Why Go Anywhere Else?-- Part 4: 1973, Wild Turkeys, Pops' 96th and Joe


SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7

Enjoyed WXRT's Saturday Morning Flashback to 1973.  Three hours from that mighty busy year for me between graduating from college, getting a teaching job, my first apartment and married.

We went to the Fox Lake American Legion to help celebrate Pop's 96th birthday.  He is called Pops as a stand-in for all of us who have lost their farmers.  His son Ken is one day younger than me.  Afterwards, we stayed for three hours as had a great time with Joe Kadlek playing the guitar and goofing around.

Going over there, we twice had to stop due to flocks of wild turkeys on Sunset Road between Johnsburg Road and US-12.  I guess we live out in the country.

Anybody seen Those Illinois Route 66 Turkey Tracks?  --RoadTurkey
