Roast turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, squash, corn, home-baked rolls – for a number of generations that’s been our family’s Christmas feast. Oh yes, followed by apple pie and pecan pie, both mit schlag (with whipped cream).
This past Christmas day we were away, enjoying roast turkey with family, when the Christmas turkeys came down off the hill behind the house –
Only occasionally do turkeys come near the house, but on this Christmas day they walked in front of a camera and on down to the backyard. Why the turkeys and deer headed back up the hill will remain a mystery, perhaps a vehicle passing by or someone walking a dog along the road – in any case neither the turkeys nor deer were really frightened, just cautious enough to walk away.
Later the turkeys came back down the hill and passed the camera on their way to somewhere else.
