Strange Things

The weather is beautiful right now, and has been since we returned from vacation.  (Ironic.)  We've been taking advantage of these nice days by strolling down the county roads where we live.  

Walking, Wed. 3/18
My darling weirdos enjoying the gorgeous weather.  They spend most of the time on these walks in shoving matches and rock kicking contests.  I like to hang back and watch.

The rest of the time, Taylor likes to distance herself from her parents.  I'm pretty sure we embarass her.  It's like my superpower or something.  I don't even have to work at it, it just comes naturally, this embarassment thing.  

Dessicated turkey, wtf?
Occasionally, something really bizarre crops up.  Like this dessicated turkey with a fork in it. Stuck to a fence post for additional impact.  We've been having fun speculating on what exactly someone was trying to say when they did this.  Thanksgiving sucks!  Or, this turkey is like our marriage, stick a fork in it, it's done!  Thanks, random person, for giving us so much to talk about. 


  1. What. the. hell. Was someone in the middle of eating the turkey-on-a-post and then.....*forgot* about it? And their cutlery? That is bizarre.

    It's nice you can take pictures of the future now too, lol.


  2. I am nothing if not progressive...

    and yeah: the turkey is so damned weird. I love it. We walked by it again this evening. I'm going to be sad when it finally rots away or someone removes it.

  3. I'm impressed with that turkey, too. I've never seen anything quite like it. {BIG SMILE}

  4. I just heard on the news (true, I swear) that a herd of turkeys was threatening children in a 4 corners neighborhood, so it's obvious to me that it's an old Indian warning for turkeys to stay away under threat of being dinner.

  5. Hahahaha, I think Mom's right on this one. Back off, Turkey! It's like a scarecrow, kind of.

  6. Gah, I nearly choked. A herd of threatening turkeys? It must be a sign of the coming zombiepocalypse.

    Old Indian warning...why didn't I think of that? Like a scarecrow and turkey jerky all rolled into one!

    I'll keep this is in mind when the deer and rabbits arrive to eat the garden. I may run out of forks.

  7. LOL! A herd of threatening turkeys...wowz.

    Heh, I like the reasons that the turkey might be there. Lol, Thanksgiving sucks? NO. No, I'm afraid I won't allow that. <(^_^)>

    Makes you wonder if it was a sort of, "Make your own damn dinner" thing.

  8. Hahaha, or "You can't eat in here with us civilized folks! Out to the fencepost with you!"


Talk to me!
