This beautiful creature landed on the railing of my deck this afternoon, and stayed long enough for me to grab my phone and get a couple of photos. Of course, Rocky went ballistic. After a few minutes the bird flew up towards the roof and I still have the smile on my face, hours later.
Sorry the darned blinds got in the way. I hope you can see the turkey a little better by clicking on one of the photos. It really is a beautiful creature.
I think there are lots of turkeys around this neighborhood. I once saw 4 or 5 of them on someone's porch! I have never had Rocky chase a bird although he watches them. I guess to him a turkey is a creature that shouldn't be in his space, not a bird.
I ordered a treadmill this afternoon, and it is to be delivered March 28. I'm so worried that there will be no deliveries of anything by then, the way it sounds. The treadmill is one that is designed mainly for seniors, having good long arm rails, and a simple display. There aren't as many options displayed as with most treadmills, and that is exactly the way I like it. All I want is start, stop, and speed adjustment. I think this one can tell you calories burned as well, but I won't ever use that option because I simply don't care. My younger sister just got a treadmill of her own, although I'm not sure she has been on it yet. She still has problems with dizziness and should have someone with her for the first few times. Unfortunately, there probably won't be much getting together in the near future and for some time.
The gardener was finally able to cut the grass in the back yard after it rained so much last week. I really wish I could get several bags of weed & feed for the yard, plus I need lots of topsoil, fertilizer etc. for my garden. I am trying to get it ready for the tomato plants, and pulled all the peas that were ready. I ate some for dinner this evening and they are really tasty. I just don't think I'll grow them again (but I might change my mind after all) and they take up a lot of space. If I was younger I would build a trellis for them so they would grow up rather than sprawl. It turned out to be a great crop in this area for late winter/early spring.
That's all for now. Stay safe, everyone, and avoid crowds if at all possible.
