Turkey in the Snow

Today when the teenager finally decided to get up and start his day he and a friend drove off to cut wood and re-stock our front porch.

As they were driving, the car in front of them hit a turkey and didn't stop. The boys did stop and now it looks like we're going to have fresh turkey in our freezer.

So--if you actually see it get hit it's not really roadkill, right?

Hi Beth
I enjoyed catching up with your life as described in the last few posts. The weather in....Maine, I think is where you live...seems to have extremes. It's a place I've long wanted to visit. I love the story about your daughter! How exciting.

Beth, turkey! I think the 10 second rule applies to this. If you get the turkey 10 seconds after it's hit-it's NOT roadkill.
I still am seeing snow there. What a downer. When do you warm up? Hope your week goes better than your weekend.

Crayons, thank you--yes the weather is very fickle in the Spring, the rest of the year it is as it is supposed to be but Spring in Maine is not idyllic.

Beckie, well it's in the freezer now--the friend's father helped them get it from looking like a turkey to looking like something I recognize as meat. That's the last remaining snowpile on the northside of the neighbor's house--it will be gone one of these days.

Sure! Sort of like the 3 second rule... you see it drop, you pick it up, it's all good! :c) Hey, it's fresh turkey.... ENJOY!

As long as you can still tell what it is I think it's O.K. If you can sail it like a frizbee and you're not sure then I would boil it good first. hee hee

I would have picked it up too. Hope the sun is shining for you now.
