Turkey Turnabout

Nice day, nice suburban neighborhood, man takes his wife for a stroll in her wheelchair–and the wildlife objects! And escorts them out.

I’ve heard Ben Franklin wanted the wild turkey, not the bald eagle, for our national bird, because the turkey is more valiant than the eagle. The wild turkey takes no guff from anyone; and if you’ve never seen one before, and then come upon one suddenly–well, it’s quite startling.

    That was great. I dunno what they were after, but they sure were persistent. Every animal is indicative of something our Creator imagined. The older I get, the more I marvel at His imaginative powers.

    By the way, that is a lovely neighborhood with big yards and beautiful homes.

    I agree about the amazing creativity of our God. It is mind-boggling to
    behold His artistry and works.

      In my area of residence, we have Gambel’s Quail, which are a drab colored bird that prefers to spend its time on the ground. They are fun to watch as they parade as families. If you ever see one up close, the drab looking browns and grays become much more beautiful at close range and younrralize that this somewhat drab looking bird is actually amazingly beautiful. Our God is awesome.

    Wild turkey hunting is a big sport in Arkansas – gobble, gobble.
