Hi everybody. It's me, Ragnar. What a WILD walk this morning! The windchill was in the 20s when we headed out, so it was just wonderful out there! We walked Westbank to Sharingbrook, then headed into Anneberg Park.
We were taking our time walking down the Perimeter Trail, going very slowly, doing a lot of snoofing. That should have been Mom's first cue that something was afoot! Let me just cut to the chase and ... roll tape!

It was wild! They ran away from us at first, but then they got to the road and there was a truck! Fortunately, the man in the truck saw them and stopped, but they ran back toward us!!! All but one of them took flight - Mom had never seen turkeys fly! One kept running at us, until he was about a leash length away! I have no idea why Mom didn't shoot video of that! Something about ... "hanging on for dear life" ... "why didn't I wear the hands free belt" ... "thank God for strong leashes and harnesses" ... that was pretty much it. Anyway, that turkey finally flew up over us, too. SO CLOSE to an early Thanksgiving ... if you know what I mean!
Anyway, we checked the whole rest of the park for them, and trust me, Mags and I will check the park for them EVERY TIME we walk there now. It was SO EXCITING!!!
