Okay, true story. Yesterday I was headed to Northern Civilization to see Hecate (oh, and there's a whole post coming up about that in a few days) and I was driving along the 4 lane highway. This is a state highway and it goes through the pretty Midwestern countryside. It's not unusual to see deer along the roads or hawks circling. It's in the country. However, that being said, I still saw something a bit odd.
I was driving along and in front of me, down the road a bit, were creatures running frantically across the road. I had plenty of time to brake and not hit anything, which I did brake and didn't hit anything. But when I pulled up even with what ran across the road, which was now standing on the side of the road, looking at the highway and at the berm, standing, I had to giggle. There stood 4 turkeys; a raft of turkeys. Wow. Wild turkeys, just standing, all huddled together along the side of the road, the day before Thanksgiving. Turkeys!
I've driven that stretch of road about 10,000+ times in my lifetime and have NEVER seen turkeys. Ever. Not once. But there, on the day before Thanksgiving, were 4 turkeys.
I was going to take a picture but they were down the berm and running before I could get pulled over.
I wonder from where they escaped?
As I drove on by, all I could say was "go turkeys, go turkeys, go turkeys, go!"
