Gobble Goggle Gobble

 Yup, it's snowing again!!!!  This makes me sound so old, but this winter reminds me of winters when I was a child...lots of snow angels, sledding, snow ball fights, and a skating rink in the back yard. 

Not only have we had lots of snow, but is has been cold, very cold!

Almost 20" of snow in the yard.  That's unusual to have for a such a prolonged time and we received a few more inches last night.  This is nothing compared to the west side of the state with the "Lake Effect," or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where my brother lives, but it is a lot for mid- Michigan. 

I love to look at the animal tracks after a snow fall, you can see where they wander, stop to eat, and lay down.  These tracks look like our two baby deer, now teenagers..they still hang around from time to time.

A couple of days ago, I was working at the computer (client reports..ugh!) which is just inside one of our front windows.  I heard this clicking sound and couldn't figure out where it was coming from.  Suddenly, I looked out the window and saw:

Wild Turkeys!
Here they are running away after I opened the front door to get a better picture. 

They are really big birds.

And were gobbling up a storm!

So much fun to watch!

Then I noticed another turkey, but this one looked different!

Was it a turkey?  The abominable snowman?  No, wait, it was my brother!  After a day working in the woods waaaaayyyy up north!  hehehe!

Hope you have a great weekend, stay warm!

  1. The turkeys had to brighten your dreary day! I am glad we get a little sunshine after about every 4-5 days of snow! THINKING SPRING & BASEBALL ! Sally
