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!
