Easter Turkeys, Vanilla Eggs and Clodhoppers


This is what I woke up to this morning. Sort of. Actually, what I woke up to was 2-3 inches of snow on the ground (and road) and tons of snow coming down outta the sky. I was not a particularly happy camper and therefore I did not take a pitcher. You guys may know that I was sick and tired of snow driving before it even started this year. And it started in November. April? Snow? Yes, it snows in April here. And May. And… By the time I took the pic, the snow had stopped and the temperatures were edging slowly toward the predicted high of 40. Our road was wet and the big roads were dry, as you can see in the photooo below.


Before I turned the corner onto that road, I could see that a couple of cars were stopped. There is almost never ANY traffic on this road. Alas, my first reaction was annoyance. What the heck are they stopped for? Is there an accident? And then I saw that they were stopping for a flock of wild turkeys! And they were stopping long enough to take pictures of them. And so did we! We stopped long enough that the turkey flock actually walked across the road right in front of the Frog Hopper! As you can see.


Wonderful weekend at the Group Home with Lizard Breath and the Lord of Linden and his daughter’s dog Sunny. Smooth trip down traveling tandem with Lizard Breath with a stop to pick up Girl Scout cookies from our lovely grandniece along the way. 61 degrees when we got back to The Planet Ann Arbor. I was hot walking to the Plum this afternoon and I have my kitchen window open for the first time since I dunno when. Simple Easter dinner tonight with the beach urchins. I love that they *want* to spend time with their baggy old parents. Like I did.

    61? It’s gotten chilly here, which I’m not used to after 70 degrees in Korea. Those wild turkeys are very cool!

    We had Easter snow too, bright and pretty. Traveled up to Winter and then came back down to spring.

    why did the wild turkeys cross the road? I don’t know – that’s why I’m asking. 😉
