Meet Vinnie and Lou

Last Sunday we traveled north to visit some jailed birds.  Raymond's Turkey Farm is located in Methuen, MA, about an hour and a quarter from Rockport.  When I was growing up, we always bought our Thanksgiving turkey there.  In later years they opened a Christmas tree farm and that's where we chose ours for many years.  Anyway, this year my mom wanted to buy a turkey pie.  Not for Thanksgiving...we're having ham...but an individual serving pie for just any day.

As if an over an hour drive wasn't enough, little did we know that Haverhill was having it's holiday parade.  It's evidently a big one and trying to get around it added an extra 15 - 20 minutes to our drive.

It's been years since we've been to Raymond's, but nothing has changed other than the large flocks of turkeys are now out of sight way behind the store.  In sight though were this year's birds that had been granted a stay of execution.

We had to walk right by Vinnie and Lou to get into the store where my mom discovered that the individual, all white meat turkey pies were sold out.


 Then we had to get back home past the parade!

Thank you! I've always wanted to see a photo of the Leaning Silo of Methuen!

It's good to know Vinnie and Lou got sprung. Poor Vito and Big Angie probably have to take the fall for them....

Regarding that leaning silo...one of the things I don't like about the new camera.

Oh, and not so fast, Vinnie and Lou are still on death row. Their lawyer filed an appeal and got a 30 day extension of their execution date. Seems it had something to do with some squawking about Vito.
