This past week Miss Gypsy was at the back patio door just barking away at something she thought shouldn't be there. I couldn't imagine what is was. Way out in the back yard almost into the woods was the culprit. A huge tom turkey scratching around in the leaves looking for acorns and whatever he could find. In the 18 years we've lived here this is the first time we've had a turkey. Oh, we have our share of bunnies, chipmunk, squirrels and deer. But never a turkey. Heck one time we even had a skunk hanging right outside the back patio door. Just never a turkey. My husband was in his glory. Now we have a "pet" turkey - and we have to put corn feed out every few days for it. He shows up every evening about 5pm looking to eat.I think I'll name him.
