Thanksgiving Dinner Menu Plan - More Possibilities!

It's time for Outdoor Wednesday again over at A Southern Daydreamer!

More possibilities for our Thanksgiving dinner showed up yesterday!
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe ......
Last week's candidates:
Thanksgiving Dinner Menu Plan

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe,
Catch the tiger/monkey/baby by the toe.
If it hollers/screams let him go,
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, you are it!
My mother told me to pick the very best one,
And that is Y-O-U
O U T spells 'out' so out you must go
Because the King and Queen says so!
Not because you're dirty,
Not because you're clean,
Just because you kissed a boy/girl behind the magazine

I came upon them unexpectedly, so the first couple of images are pretty darn blurry.
They were digging for grubs on the front of our property down at street level.

"Hey you guys, run run run!  It's the lady that's always talking about cooking us!"

Hitting the pavement at a fast clip.

And they're off!

All those little feathered butts!

I was in the garden(like a golf cart) cart following them very slowly.  They would speed up, then
slow down always keeping me at a safe distance.

"She's still coming!  Head for the park guys!"

Half of the flock headed for the short-cut ..... 

And the other half decided to do the race-track maneuver.

"We're safe now ...... I don't think she can see us up under the tree!"

That's it for Outdoor Wednesday this week, thanks for coming by!

  2. Great goodness,these turkeys better get out of town,literally!...YES GET OUT OF TOWN!

  3. Wow! Amazing to see that many turkeys all together. Great pictures.


  4. Are they running away to hide ? : )
    I am having a giveaway so please come over and enter if you get a chance : )

  5. They're just so amusing! Thanks for the great photo essay.

  6. How fun! These photos brought back a memory of my aunt's backyard in Jekyll Island, GA. She had a flock of turkeys in the yard during one of my visits...They moved all over the yard...back and forth...but would not move forward towards the woods. The garden hose was stretched out...and apparently the turkeys thought it was a snake. After walking up and back for about 15 minutes, a brave soul hopped over the hose...followed by the rest. And they ambled into the woods. It was so amusing...
    Love your blog....glad I found you today...
