TURKEYS IN THE TALL GRASS

Doesn’t that sound like a title for a Louis Lamour  novel?  (Don’t know who that is?…you aren’t from around here, are you?)image

…The strangers strolled into town, talking low among themselves. They looked like a rough crowd.  What did they want?  Were they just friendly passers through, or were they no good claim jumpers?

There was only one way to find out.  A posse was quickly formed and it headed out to apprehend the intruders.  Across the the prairie, the volunteers bravely marched.

It was a standoff……but after many steely eyed stares, both sides agreed that there wasn’t room in these parts for the both of them.   The strangers moved on and all was safe and quiet once more………….and that’s how the West was won.

    That does sound like a classic western story, with the donkeys and turkeys standing in for the people (and remember how the good guys wore white, while the bad guys wore black, just so we could easily distinguish?) But you have brave donkeys. Whenever my horse stumbled upon a wild turkey, he was the one who turned and ran, even if I happened to be riding him at the time.
