The Great Escape

This morning I saw something very unusual.

I was sitting in my car at a gas station on one of the busiest streets in town after dropping off a tire and rim that I needed to get fixed. Seemingly out of nowhere I saw a wild male turkey walking down the intersecting street towards the busy street. Head bobbing back and forth, the bird was looking to get across the street to the woody area on the other side. Without stopping the turkey began to walk across the street, heedless of the traffic on the road. He made it halfway before five cars had to stop and let the bird pass.

But that's not all. A few moments later the female comes out of the same nowhere running after her mate into the street... right into an oncoming car!

Well almost. The bird took a hard left - fiercely flapping its wings to (barely) avoid being made into turkey salad.

Fortunately after that the female was able to make it safely to the woods.

Then I drove home.

I can never understand why anyone would want to stand on a curb holding a sign with some political candidate's name on it for hours on end. Even if you're getting paid to do it, which is probably rare.

Even in the best of conditions, this is something I'll never, ever do. What made these yokels even more ridiculous looking was that today it was raining for the better part of the day.
