No not Thanksgiving but we could have shot a turkey if we wanted to or two or three. No we didn't want to and it isn't the season if we wanted to. Just saying the wild turkeys were out today. We saw a flock this morning at the ranch and they didn't even have to fly over the fence. There is no fence yet at the back forty but the wire is all laid out so it shouldn't be long. I think if the turkeys want to fly over that fence they will have to make a running start to get high enough to go over. The fence builder had kept his promise and fixed the road through the dry creek bed. Now if it will just stay there. When it rains a lot and hard it washes down hard at that spot. We appreciate it anyway and will tell him when we see him again. This afternoon we went for a country drive and saw another flock of wild turkeys cross in front of us so I stopped the truck even with them and they didn't run, just walked on their merry way. Of course I had to count them and there were nine.
