Turkey Town

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

It got up 110 degrees here in some places. UGH!! I can't stand it!!!! I want rain!!!! Hose me down! LOL.

This morning I had to go outside to the Turtle Bed and Breakfast and pull Big Boy off the top of a little female turtle who was trying to fight him off. Poor little thing. He was trying to bite her and was doing his best to force himself on her and he got his toe hung in her shell trying to pry it apart. Jeez. What a pest. I gave him a cold shower. LOL. He decided to eat instead. Good choice.

Today was errand and shopping day. YUCK! "I didn't want to do it, I didn't want to do it." But I went to the post office, newspaper office, bank, Aldi, Kohls, and Kroger. I didn't want to go to Wal-mart. I'm sick of the place. I had hoped to find a couple things I needed at Kohls but I'm cheap and they wanted too much money for this old bird. I like J-Lo and even though we are dead ringers for each other (STOP LAUGHING!!), we are not exactly peers. Everything with her name on it is kind of expensive. A tiny coin purse for $39. Sheesh. I don't want to pay that much for something to hold my pennies.

On the way home, about an 1/8 of a mile from my house, I had to stop to let an adult turkey followed by 12 tiny baby turkeys and another adult turkey cross the road single file. The little ones were so cute.

Well, I have to try to feed Porkie again.

    In this hot weather, rain doesn't really cool it off much, makes it like a rain forest. Makes clouds of fog in the morning. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad for the rain in our area the past few weeks (North GA). Maybe now they will stop taking aobut drought.

    I'll never complain about rain . . . hope you get some soon . . . emoticon emoticon

    I'm with you - I'm on a Walmart boycot - I hate that place!

    Hoping Porkies appetite improves, & he is feeling better soon.

    Your blog made me laugh and then made my heart smile with y our turkey story!!! Sending you some of our cooling rains. We had some light rain with our thunderstorms yesterday and now are just getting some semi-heavy rains. Sure hope it is going to soak into the ground and not just run off.
    Hope you are resting and taking care of yourself as well as your "babies."
    Blessings and hugs,

    I saw an adult turkey not too long ago but with only 1 baby! I thought it was a pheasant but hubby said no! Aren't the babies just the cuddliest things? sooo sweet!Wild turkey and pheasant tastes pretty good though! LOL emoticon

    I was at Khol's yesterday too! Didn't like a thing I saw but was determined to find something to buy with the $10 gift card that came in the mail! After an hour I finally settled on 2 T-shirts that were on sale. Love seeing wildlife with their young. We have some geese hanging out at the small lake nearby. We're scheduled for more severe thunderstorms this afternoon; hope some of the rain finds its way up north. emoticon

    And here I can't wait until the SuperWalmart finally goes in here in town. *sighs* Town has been giving them a hard time for the last 5 yrs.. I say with the economy being absolute crud.. and people needing both jobs and cheaper places to shop.. let them in! Better than the high end pricey Target they let in last year. ouch.. I can't afford their food prices.. That's definitely a joke. I will say I think everyone hates shopping at Walmart.. it's a universal experience.. always frustrating. lol

    The heat finally broke here.. with a huge set of thunderstorms that went through last night. It's almost frigid today.. lol I'm thrilled!!

    Have a great day.. keep those turtles in check! lol

    Funny to hear about the turtles. We spoke with a woman at the July 4th party we went to, who has a refuge for turtles in her canal-front yard. When it's mating season, the males are aggressive like this at her place, too!

    Aww, I miss turkeys! The closest we've got is turkey vultures. Those babies of theirs are so vulnerable until they're mature enough to fly up into the trees at night.

    We love the prices and the produce (believe it or not) at WalMart, but hate going there! It must be universal.

    I hope that you get some relief from the heat soon. Today is my grocery day and I'm not looking forward to it.

    Great blog Morticia. I laughed about the naughty male turtle.
    Cold shower indeed. Give Porky a hug for me. Hope he gets his
    appetite back soon.
    I am sending you some autumn showers to cool you off. emoticon emoticon

    Today was errand day for me too. I detest grocery shopping usually, but today wasn't so bad. You'd have to drag me kicking and screaming into Walmart here. The parking lot is always insane and the people are sometimes a little too "interesting" for me. I always love hearing about your adventures with turtles!
    I wish I could send you some Oregon cool weather! It was about 76 and a teeny bit rainy today. The way things are going, I doubt we'll top 100 this year. (Although the last few days were in the low 90's) We have turkeys too right now with sort of partially grown chicks who eat under the bird feeders several times a day. I keep trying to get a picture of them for a blog but they're eating near a big sliding glass door and they always see me and then it's TURKEY EXPLOSION into the trees!! Lol! You sound a little better rested today. I sure hope you're getting some rest and that the chinchillas are feeling better.
    Nighty night, my hard working sister friend. emoticon emoticon
