The Further Adventures of Jimmy the Turkey

We thought we might’ve caught Jimmy the Turkey on an off-day yesterday, maybe he got up on the wrong side of the… whatever turkeys sleep in. He couldn’t be that crabby all the time.

Uh… wrong. He can.

My wife knew a farmer whose tom turkey habitually attacked the mailman. That was back when mail carriers used to go around with those great big sacks of mail. Something about the poor guy always got the turkey’s dander up.

I so see this as a Freddy book!

    Hey! I live in a city of 60,000 people. This afternoon I was looking out my kitchen window and there was a TURKEY pecking on the ground where seeds had fallen from the bird feeder!. I ran for my cell phone to take a photo but it was full an wouldn’t take any more pictures! RATS!

    That might not be a big deal for many of you, but I have only seen a turkey in this city once before. A few years ago one walked across my front lawn.

    Jimmy is definitely an alpha type. He has strong opinions and knows he is right. 🙂
