I find them hilarious.
Maybe it's the "gobble gobble".
Maybe it's how insanely serious turkey hunters are with their head to toe camo outfits and accessories. Yeah I know wild turkeys have extremely good hearing and sight and are actually quite hard to hunt. BUT DAMMIT, IT'S A FRIKKEN TURKEY!!!
Mabye it's because I once saw a show where a man of questionable intelligence went turkey poaching and threw a turkey in his trunk along with his UN-safetied rifle. The turkey wasn't dead, flapped around, and ended up shooting the guy. On the show the guy adamantly declared that, "TURKEYS IZ DANGEROUS!"
Whatever the reason, wild turkeys fill me with glee.
And so today when we were out and about visiting Lakefield, imagine my excitement when Sheila spotted a veritable horde of wild turkeys!
I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE THEM!!!!!!!!
We also stopped to take pictures of a lake covered in mist. It was beautiful in a melancholy sort of way.
Here's Dave T taking a picture of the misty lake.

Anyhow, Lakefield was pretty and I got a free Guinness cupcake because of St.Patty's Day. I really should have taken a picture of it but I was hungry and it was gone in about 30 seconds.
It was a quiet St.Patty's Day but I really enjoyed it.
