Wild Turkeys and Other Stuff

I can’t believe the number of wild turkeys on this island.  I was just sitting in my room with the window open and I heard a turkey gobbling in the yard.  I also can’t believe how many domesticated turkeys drive cars but that’s for another day.

Here’s what it sounded like.  There is a 15 second add before the video which is short but funny.

My knee is healing nicely.  It’s healing so well that I can finally drive which makes me very happy.

The kids went to the mainland to a concert for the weekend so I am alone today.  When I got up this morning this was on the kitchen table.  There really is an Easter Bunny.

There was no chocolate in the basket. 😦  I wouldn’t have eaten it.  I would have photographed it.

I finally realized that my head was empty because I haven’t left the house in a month.  Things will be changing.  I now can go out with all the turkeys and find some good old dumbasses.

My son is doing well in St. Augustine, Florida.  He has a house on the beach and has a job which he likes.  He says he’s put on 15 pounds.  The restaurant he works for is a mom and pop owned place and they give him tons of food every time he works.  He’s going to send me a photo and I will post it.

The good weather is coming which means we will soon be losing most of the island to the tourists.   The population goes from 15,000 to 75,000 in the summer and that doesn’t include the thousands of day trippers.  Just over half the houses on the island are only occupied in the summer.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for today.
