Yesterday was one of a string of clear, bright and warmer days that we have been seeing lately. We'll get more snow, but, this is a welcome break. I saw a couple more signs of Spring, even though they weren't the most glamorous things to see. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me, so we'll have to rely on stock pictures.
First of all, the Turkey Buzzards are back. As soon as I went out of the door, I saw them floating up there in the sky. Up close, they are uuuuuugly, but they certainly are magnificent at catching the wind currents.
The second sign of Spring that I saw yesterday was a motorcycle, whizzing by the house. Oh, not one of those beautiful Harleys, but one of those obnoxious little "Sport" motorcycles. Harley riders behave themselves, but the young kids who like to play "Rocket Man" drive me nuts. At least I won't have to be scared stiff on the way too and fro work any more. That crazy weaving in and out of cars used to make me crazy.
But, fate was saving the best sign for last. This morning, I looked out of my back window, and saw that the turkeys were out there. And "The Man" was in full display. He's not as stunning as Joanna's Franklin, but he's pretty magnificent all the same.
Look at me, girls!
Other Good Side
You'll notice that the girls don't seem too terribly interested in him. The corn and sunflower seeds on the ground are, apparently, much more enticing. And, yes, that is Mr. Smarty Pants Squirrel making his presence known in all of the turkey pictures.
