Catchy blog post title, huh? ;)
I was watching the TV news the other morning and heard a sound outside that took me back to my desk at DuPont. I could see clearly in my mind a fellow in my office explaining how hunters make turkey calls. Now, why he thought this was of interest to me, I'll never know. But I knew instantly that what I was hearing outside my window that morning was a turkey.
And it was not just one turkey ~ that morning
I counted 11 of them in our front yard.
A few days later, I counted 19 parading
through the woods right past our deck.
Can you spot them?
I've since heard from neighbors that
they counted up to 60 at a time.
Here are some clearer photos of them walking down the road.
These are really big birds!

Mr. Cobblestone and I have completed the painting of the family room. It went from gray walls and stark white trim
to a deep aqua with creamy light yellow trim.
Next projects for this room: cover that red brick with some nice ceramic tiles, finish painting the shelves, decide what to do with the draperies, replace the carpeting . . .
Oh ~ maybe I'll just go sew more mice instead.
