Doin' The Turkey Trot
My goodness the turkeys are plentiful this year. When we drove past the farm house I noticed the renter's white turkeys have multiplied. They must have been to the flea market already this morning and bought or traded for more. They have them in the back yard with the storage shed door propped open. They had told us a panther or a bob cat got their ducks so I guess they are keeping the turkeys under close watch. When we lived there we didn't see a panther or a bobcat but I guess who knows? We saw two flocks of wild turkeys this morning. One on the side of the road and one at the back forty where we were looking for Juan to pay him for planting. John saw the turkeys in time to honk and scare them in to getting the leverage to fly over the high fence. He wanted them out of the field so they don't eat his seed. The seed has poison on it to kill worms and it could maybe kill the turkeys but don't think so. No need to take the chance. It is supposed to rain tomorrow so maybe the haygrazer seed will come up soon. We finally tracked Juan down at his house and he is through with the planting and its paid for. I told him I like his donkeys and he said his wife bought them and they aren't worth anything. Do you want them he said? Bet Maria wouldn't like that. John said no she wants a minature. Juan said they cost up to $1,000 a piece. There goes that dream. Ha I can barely take care of myself sometime and I want a donkey in the country to feed? Like I said just a dream.
