Saw a flock of turkeys today. They were in a small tree right beside the sidewalk. A flock of them, maybe a dozen, in the tree, eating red berries. Made me think perhaps they were stuffing themselves with cranberries, the week before Thanksgiving. Of course cranberries usually grow in bogs, you'll say, but perhaps this was a hybrid high-bog berry tree. And maybe there was a gravy river down the road and mashed potato clouds. OK, really thinking about Thanksgiving dinner here. Back to the turkeys. They were glossy black and gray amongst the red berries. There were turkeys in the tree and some on the ground, and they flapped up and down from tree to ground.
