He feels proud of his roots
in an air of dignity.

Working out and keeping in shape for November, I guess. Wonderful colors.

Also overheard: "Better than being a ham." Nice capture.

You handle the bird, I'll make the cranberry sauce.

Despite what they say in the barnyard, he's quite handsome.

Lots of T&L storms the past couple of nights and no power. Today looks promising.

Heehee.
And I have yet to see one in person!

Halcyon said...

Ha! He's quite the attractive fellow though.

No matter what you heard he is just a show off and what goes on in the barnysrd stays in the barnysrd. MB

Funny commentary. I've seen a lot of turkeys and I've worked with a lot of turkeys. Hell, I've got a lot of turkeys in my family! But I've never seen as beautiful a turkey as this one! Is this a special breed of Vermont turkey?

By the way, we got Haley on Prednizone and she's much better already today! Yeah!

Hee-hee! Tough to keep a secret like that. What a fine specimen. Not as majestic as an eagle, but a true American.

Such DIVINE 'slice of life' photos this week Brattcat! The wet cows are my favorite. So dreamy......... Ah, summer.

He certainly is...maybe a trip to the "feather dresser" might help!

Malyss said...

All of them are jealous in the yard!That's surely the local hero!

Amin said...

Wow! Wonderful moment for photo....

Virginia said...

I hear the clock ticking. Not many months till November!

"No, I'm just a chicken", he says, thinking of Thanksgiving.

I've been missing your daily photos and seeing all the blogs. This is one strutting dude! PS. I'm in Santa Fe without a computer, and I'm having photo-withdrawal. Visiting the library is great for books but waiting for a computer to use is a huge pain!

Magpie said...

He is indeed a real turkey...I wonder who let the secret out. Probably the geese. Everyone knows how they like to gossip. :)

You know, turkeys are pretty ugly. I've heard they're stupid, too. But what would I know? I'm a city boy.

VP said...

This is a royal turkey!

Jilly said...

Turkeys are such amazing creatures. Why do we have to eat them? Well I don't!

JM said...

Now that's a gorgeous bird that makes me feel rather 'unconfortable' when I think of Christmas...

Nice profile! This post is very Jacobesque.
