How many turkeys are in a gaggle? I guess I could google a gaggle.

Shown here are a flock of turkeys that were brought in after the flood to help clean up the mess left by the water. I heard it didn't work too well. There was a great Thanksgiving feast that fall though.

Re: FS EARLY CRANK HANDLE (NOS)

I thought that the early Model T's had a hard plastic handle like the Model NRS cars did. Was there a interim wooden handle?
