Deboning a chicken & genealogy search….
Let’s see --- right now at almost 3:00am I’m updating my Radeon graphics driver. Fun stuff. ■ Tonight I deboned a chicken. Looked at a couple of youtube videos to see how it was done. It didn’t look too hard, but that bird and I wrestled for quite awhile. In the end I think the bird won. It was a heck of a match, but I did get all of the bones out. What I had left was basically one large connected piece and several/many smaller pieces that had been hacked off in trying to get as much of the meat as I could. I then seasoned the remains of the bird with some adobo and black pepper, and I cut up some onions to go on top. It then went into our handy grill basket, put on the grill and baked/smoked it for probably an hour. It tasted good, but I’ve got some ideas for the next one. ■ I continue the search for my birth mother. The clues lead you all over. One of the problems that continues to drive one nuts is simply finding dates. A lot of the time the year of birth might not be the same in all of the records you’re looking at. And trying to find dates for marriages is very difficult. ■ A letter, along with some pictures, has been sent this week. I’m now in a waiting state. ■ And it is time to go back to bed. ‘Night. ■
