Sept. 2 - Lisa's Musings (on what you wish for) and Every Day Life

Yup. You may blame me for today's weather. I asked for it and I got it.

Thank you Mommy Nature. My grass thanks you. My strawberry basket that I forget to water thanks you and apparently, the wild turkeys thank you,too.

Yippee, my turkeys were back today.

It's the first time I've seen them in months. But I don't think they were doing the boot scoot boogie or the hootchie-coochie or any of those mating dance things.

I just think they came back for a visit. You know, see the ole dancin' grounds. Or something.

I tried to get their photo for this blog, but apparently, like the hummingbirds, they're not into mugging for the camera. Maybe it's something I said. I don't know.

But as soon as I got close enough to focus -- even with a long lens -- they took one look at me and walked really, really fast into the woods. Then I felt badly because they made such a hasty exit.

It wasn't very welcoming of me, I'm afraid.

And goes contrary to everything we're about -- out here in the country.

So, wild turkeys, if you're reading this ... I didn't mean to intrude on your special time on my front yard. Or your privacy.


You're welcome here any time.
