Tom Turkey and the Truck

Who knew a truck could be so attractive. Apparently to a male turkey, even trucks are sexy. I can’t even begin to tell you how much time he spends strutting and fluffing in front of our Ford. Granted it is black, so he is seeing himself if the light is right. But really who knew! When the light does change and he sees himself clearly, you can see his demeanor change. Suddenly it is an opponent. He gets himself all mad and stomps around. He glares in the chrome bumper and makes male turkey noises. Gobbling and chirping away. God forbid you attempt to move the truck, he chases us down the driveway. Watching a turkey run is a bit like seeing the velociraptors in Jurassic Park. They really do look like dinosaurs.All that just to get out the driveway. Ah, the joys of farm life.
