Talking Turkey on Thanksgiving

By now you know I love these turkeys that roam around our
neighborhood. They're way more peaceable than some people might be.
They seem to mind their own turkey business and even add some grace and beauty - if you can
see the beauty of the bird.  I've been told that if they decide to
attack you it's very nasty.  Those barbs on the back of their legs
are like nails which they would rip down your flesh. 
However this has not happened.  I see them a lot when I'm
walking Rascal, they don't seem to pay much attention to us and Rascal
pays little attention to them.  It's very nice. 
I think the worst thing they do is hold up traffic.  When they decide
to cross the street they seem oblivious to the vehicles that
might be in a hurry.  I think people should slow down anyway.  
With Thanksgiving Day tomorrow it seems like a
good time to say something nice about
these peace loving birds and I can because I love them.  Diane

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!!

Hi Diane,
We don't have wild turkeys here in our area of the mountains, so I've never seen one in the wild. I know there are several to the west of us on the plains. They really are an interesting looking bird.
I loved the post of your daughter and granddaughters. It's a good thing to have the albums to look through at gram's house. I remember doing that at my grandmother's when I was a child. Both grandmother's kept much better albums than I ever have. As the girls get older I am sure they will appreciate your keepsakes even more.
Thank you for such a lovely message for me today. I appreciate your dear friendship so much and I feel that this blogging is a blessing for so many of us. Especially those of us who live in the sticks.lol!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Love to you...

They are so pretty, Diane. I can understand why you like them so much.... Unlike other 'critters' ---they probably don't eat the roses and flowers... ha ha

AND--nobody is killing them for Thanksgiving Dinner... YEAH!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving my friend.
Hugs,
Betsy

That must be a blast to watch them wander about. Out here, no turkeys but lots of deer wandering about. Happy Thanksgiving! Kit

I always love coming across them too Diane. And, for the most part, they just look at me and then waddle on their way, except in November, when they start to hide behind trees. (smile) Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Diane!

Hi Diane - I'm away this week, so it's not so easy to stay up-to-date, but I'm glad I stopped by. Your header is very pretty and festive, and I enjoyed learing about the wild turkeys.
