I’ve had #1 Grandson here with us since Saturday. He’s on a Fall or Thanksgiving Break from school this week. He’s so excited waiting for the storm which is supposed to bring 6 inches of snow to our neighborhood. It’s stalled somewhere and isn’t here yet. He really, really wants to make a snowman.
Baby Girl and the Handsome Surveyor and our littlest will be with us for Thanksgiving and I can’t wait to see them and hold our Littlest.
I’m finally over or nearly over a miserable cold so I am feeling very grateful for my health at the moment, and for my family, friends, and the friends I’ve made here.
About the image of Tom Turkey. This is to date the biggest Turkey I have ever seen in the wild! It was huge!! It was taken in Amador County, CA while on the back from a Spring wildflower excursion. No luck with wildflowers that year, but he was a welcome sighting and made up for the lack of flowers.
I wish all my friends here in the blogosphere that are in the USA a very Happy Thanksgiving!
I wish the rest of you a wonderful week and week-end where ever you are!

Deborah, By now your Thanksgiving has come and gone. Not sure about the fate of this huge, wild Turkey. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, enjoying the special time with family and holding the “Littlest.”🙂
Thank you, Erica! Thanksgiving was lovely, and we got to hold, hug, and smother out Littlest with lots love while we could. I can’t wait to see them again.
What a handsome photo of this magnificent bird! He’s really something, isn’t he?
We’ve had wild turkeys return to our area and it turns out, they are quite aggressive. They stand at intersections and challenge the cars! We snicker about attack turkeys, and give them some berth…
Oh my gosh! I didn’t realize they were that territorial. A friend was just telling me about a Wild Turkey a male that was agressive. The story was close to Thanksgiving a police officer in Livermore CA pulled over a guy for speeding and while he was talking to guy out came this huge Tom Turkey from somewhere and started harrassing and chasing the cop around his motorcycle and the guy’s car whom he had pulled over. The cop let the guy go, and the video from his body camera went viral. I looked it up after she told me about it.
Here’s the link.
The turkey saved the guy from getting a ticket! Pretty wild right? I wonder if the Tom thought the motorcycle was a rival for territory? 😀
OMG that was hilarious!
Glad you liked that.😄😂
I’m glad you’re feeling better! I see turkeys wandering alongside the woods in these parts. But I don’t think I’ve ever noticed all the details that you’ve managed to capture in this shot. I hope that you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
Thank you so much, Amy! I am feeling much, much better. I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving too. xx
Great capture Deborah! I just love watching the Tom’s strut their stuff. They remind me of guys at the gym puffing out their chests! Happy Belated Thanksgiving!
LOL! They do don’t they all proud and full of themselves.
Thank you so much, Denise for the comment.
Great to spend time with family!
It is! Thank you so much, Chocoviv!
You’re welcome 😇
That is a magnificent turkey and seemed to be trying to impress you. I hope your Thanksgiving was lovely.
Thank you so much, Cheryl! We had a lovely Thanksgiving. I hope you did too! xx
We did. Quiet but beautiful.😊
Glad to hear that!
Oh I hope he gets to build a snowman! You must share snowman pics with us!
I haven’t seen turkey in person in many years. We have a park here called Turkey Run — and that is literally where I remember seeing turkeys. I was small then, and thought they were ENORMOUS, in my head like between a goose and an emu LOL!
That turkey is gorgeous, and huge. I hope your grandson gets to make a snowman. Happy Thanksgiving, Deborah. Enjoy your family.
Happy Thanksgiving; hope the family gathering is fun with a snowy wonderland! Nice colorful bird; amazing to see them in the wild!
Thanks, Gordon! I hope and the Mrs. have a lovely day!
It is fun to see them in the wild. Today there was a pair of Harriers hunting right in my backyard! Unfortunately I only had my little Lumix fz200 handy and it doesn’t track well, so I am not counting on any good images of the few I took.
I hope they come back! Now, I have my good camera ready!
Happy Thanksgiving, Deborah. Perfect turkey photo!
Thank you so much, Belinda!
That is one big turkey – great shot. I hope Grandson #1 gets enough snow to make him happy but not enough to keep his parents and the little guy away. Have a great time with family.
Thank you so much, Judy! #1 was the happiest boy in the world today. He sledded and made a snowman with Poppa! We’re all looking forward to tomorrow and seeing his mom, brother, his step-sisters, and the Handsome Surveyor of course.
I hope you have a lovely day too! xx
Awesome turkey, I hope he ‘got away’ this year! Happy Thanksgiving, Deborah!
Me too, Donna! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
What a big, fat turkey!! 😳 I’m enjoying your “snow” photos on IG. ☃️ Glad to hear you are feeling better, Deborah so you can enjoy time with your family! ❤️ Happy Thanksgiving! 😘xo
My turkey is sneakier than yours!!
ROFL!!!! That’s funny, GP!
That Tom must have been an escapee from a farm; I’ve never seen a wild turkey that fat! Or maybe he’s a celebrity model turkey, trying to live out of the limelight. He’s gorgeous!!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, and safe travels to all.
LOL! He is fat! Thank you so much, Marian! Happy Thanksgiving to you, Charlie and the family!
Have fun with the family and Thanksgiving Deborah!
Thank you so much, Peter! I hope the rest of your week and week-end are lovely too!
That really is a handsome turkey, Deborah. I was quite surprised when you said it is wild. It sounds like a lovely holiday at your place. Although I’m glad to only get rain from that maxi storm. Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs on turkey wings! (No offense Tom.)
He was the best and most beautiful Tom I’d ever seen. I hope he’s still running free and bigger than ever.
Happy Thanksgiving, Teagan! xx
Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Deborah!
Thank you so much, Sue! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Deborah. That is a big turkey. I hope he misses the festivities.
Thank you so much, Dan! He was HUGE! A man came out of his house and said that he comes by every afternoon…the turkey. That was back in 2011. I sure hope old Tom is still struting his stuff around that countryside.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family, Dan! I hope you have a lovely day too.
Nice that you can celebrate together with your family. I wish Thanksgiving a happy and sociable get-together
Thank you so much, Werner!
