“Eat without scruple whatever God has prepared for you at the common table…
whatever God provides for you, take that with simplicity of heart from his hand”
St. Philip Neri

“For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He who eats my flesh and drinks
my blood abides in me, and I in him…this is the bread which came down from heaven, not such as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.
We often see wild turkey here. Growing up on a turkey farm, I cannot get enough turkey. Thanks for the photographs.
I usually can see them in our backyard but thanks to the growing coyote population…sadly their numbers are shrinking here at home….
Sad. Coyotes must eat, but coyotes should not be there.
We had a bunch of them in Minneapolis near our old, old house. They’d walk down the sidewalk, wait for the light and proceed on. They chased the mailman down our street, gobbling all the way. They really have beautiful feathers – iridescent especially in the sunshine. We called them the Johnson Street Turkeys. Paul saw one laying in the grass right across from the butcher shop. One of the butchers came out to see if it was dead. I wonder if they ever sold that old bird. Love your photos.
I’d lay money he did 🙂
I agree with Ben Franklin. We should have made the wild Turkey our national bird
I totally concur Wally— a truly beautiful as well as tasty bird!
