stupidest bird around

(viewed 1023 times)
This is a wild turkey, photographed as it ran endlessly up and down the fence, trying to find a way into the field, away from me. Turkeys have absolutely no brains. They stand around making noises in corn fields so hawks and other predators are sure to notice them. I once raised commercial turkeys for Thanksgiving. They are even dumber than the wild turkeys because all they have is a giant breast, and no brains. If you don't put something shiny in the feed, like marbles, the chicks will not peck at their food. They will starve. I thought that was kind of basic.

downtown toronto day

(viewed 581 times)
The faces are carved into the courthouse. The architect had a hard time with the city council, so the council members are immortalized in caricature in stone revenge. I had to go to court on Monday to be a witness. Two kids robbed a corner store, then ran away through the neighbourhood. So the entire neighbourhood was called as witnesses. The boys pleaded guilty so we were not needed. Meanwhile I am all caught up on the neighbourhood gossip. Good times. Then I went across the street to city hall and checked out the roof garden, and just because I was there, I stopped by to see if the mayor wanted my help.

white trout lily

(viewed 582 times)
there are thousands of trout lily leaves. Only a few bloom. Most are yellow. Once in a while, if you are lucky, or like me, end up sliding down a hill involuntarily, you look up and there is a white trout lily. here's to sliding down hills.
