We had company coming from Wisconsin for Thanksgiving. They said they would bring the turkey so I didn't buy one.
The day before the big holiday I mentioned that I sure hoped our relatives remembered the turkey. My co-worker Shirley said, "Just shoot a wild one if they forget."
I replied "We don't have any at our house."
Coming down our driveway on the way home I looked into the trees and where I saw nineteen wild turkeys. I was so surprised.
No, we didn't butcher one. Our company did bring a turkey.
These majestic birds are still hanging around gobbling and strutting right in our yard.
