Turkey Chaos

Why did the turkeys cross the road?

I was going through pictures on my phone and had forgotten about these. This incident made me laugh loudly. At first the turkeys are following the rules and crossing the road in somewhat of a single file and somewhat the buddy system.

But then a truck from one way and our truck from the other way approached slowly. We were actually at a stop.

And the other truck stopped.

But the turkeys lost it.

Sorry, Moo Friends, But We're Not the Feed Truck

The other day Steve and I went out exploring in our white truck. The countryside was stunning. It was tranquil, quiet, and peaceful. 

Until suddenly mooooing cows, acting somewhat demanding and territorial, came running out of the woodwork, er, bushes and trees.

And they kept coming closer, checking us out, some of them drooling and still mooooing.

Hey, we're sorry. We took a wrong turn. We are not your feed truck. (Most feed trucks are white.)

All we have are a few red licorice sticks, a half eaten bag of edamame, a banana, an apple, dog treats, and water for people and dogs.

Um, no, serious, that's all we have. Mooove along now. Nobody gets hurt. We love cows. We love milk and hamburgs. Oops. Sorry. We love cows.

The Elk are Back!

We haven't seen the elk in over 10 days. This morning they came over the hill to hunker down from the wind and blowing snow.

But the snow quit and the sun came out.

Some went higher up the hill...

...and others went to the valley.

Such a blessed sight to see!

Road Trip on a Spring-Like Day!

Yesterday was a beautiful pre-spring day so the dogs barked Road Trip! Then they barked Selfie!

Another Selfie, please!

Steve, Ike, Bear and I (I called shotgun!) ended up at Lake DeSmet - our favorite fishing hole! You can see one hardy fisherman ice fishing on the far right.

We just all hung out in the sunshine (a few clouds now and then.)

Some of us took a nap.

With the temps in the 60's and the sunshine shining down on the lake, it was amazing to hear the lake sing as it was melting. Have you ever heard a lake make ice? It's a similar sound when it melts and so cool and kind of creepy like there is a monster moaning underneath all that ice. eeeek! But super cool, too.

And we just soaked it all in.

We were talking about going back later this afternoon because today is sunny and warm, too, but it is so windy and is only going to get windier so maybe we won't. This cabin is just creaking and whistling today. I think we'll go with plan B. Plan A was to grill. I don't want Steve to blow away. Yikes.

Happy Sunday, Everyone!
