As Mrs. D. and I were beginning an evening bike ride tonight, we noticed a gang of four turkeys foraging their way through a yard on 52nd St. just west of Nicollet Avenue. I had heard people in the neighborhood talking about seeing turkeys, but this was my first encounter with these wild beasts.
These magnificent examples of Ben Franklin’s choice for our national bird decided to cross the street (without looking both ways) and visit the family that lives at 111 W. 52nd St.
What’s next for us? Moose? Elk? Rattlesnakes? Raccoons? Bunnies? Squirrels?
Tangletonians, get your guns. Thanksgiving is not far off.
