THANKSGIVING IS COMING



Driving home from lunch the other day we saw this wonderful sight.
There was a whole group of wild turkeys making their way through the field.
They were much closer until they saw us trying to take their pictures.
Be sure to enlarge this photo to see the detail.

What a great find!! Don't they look so much different from the fat ones that are bred to eat? Did you know that Ben Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird?

I like the turkeys with the background of straw. I saw a flock of wild turkeys the other day and wished I had my camera! Good find!

I'm so ready for one of those Turkeys. Our family gets together each year, and we all contribute... However I like to bake the turkey and make the dressing. So the girls let me. Someday, it will be their turn.

I can't blame them from moving along. They can smell trouble coming later this month.

There's a community college in Roseburg, OR that has wild turkeys roaming around the campus. They might get a little nervous later this month. Nice shot!

Love this shot! We sometimes see wild turkeys on drives through rural areas in our region, but never in these numbers. In recent years, however, wild turkeys have become abundant in the Cades Cove area and roadsides in the Smoky Mountains were we like to visit. It is always a thrill to see them.

I LOVE this picture. It's iconic.

Love the turkeys! Once in Haiti, we bought a turkey and gave it to the lady who did our wash to feed and fatten it for us. When we got him back before Thanksgiving, he was just as thin if not thinner than when we gave it to her. I guess she needed the money to feed her family more than feeding the turkey. What could we say?
