These turkeys don't give a flock, they found grass seed!

in humor •  2 months ago

Sometimes in life you run into some real turkeys. While going to visit a friend, I happened to find a few if these turkeys.

I have been trying to get a picture of a turkey, and today I found an entire flock. So this is a picture ten times better that I was hoping for....

They had no problem with my picture taking, and almost posed for these pictures. I am sure that they knew I was there, but they found some good eats, and were chowing down.

I almost think they knew it was not turkey season! But I bet the guy that seeded that yard would shoot them anyway, if he knew, LOL!

I am sure he will wonder why his grass didn't grow. ♡♡♡

True, one of the reasons I left FB; as I recall, too many turkeys there, LOL! There are very few on Steemit, so I am having fun here!

I suspect that when Turkey hunting season rolls around, this same flock will be VERY hard to find! :D

o' oh - LOL, Only 16 weeks till christmas!
Watch Out Turkeys!

·

I think they have an underground Bunker they use to hide in during hunting season, LOL!
:)

I like the turkeys better in the garden than on the plate 😉
Have an nice relaxed weekend

·

These guys would be pretty hard on a garden, they eat everything the can reach. But I understand I have a good friend who is a vegan. One thing I am sure of is the ideal plate varies a lot, LOL! :D

·
·

100% vegan I'm not yet .... but I eat very little meat ... but very much vegetables 😉

·
·
·

Good for you! I have been vegetarian for over 40 years.

·

A shared sentiment, my friend!

·
·

oh yes oh yes .... it is a nice feeling for me to see the turkeys running across the meadow

We had a rafter of 19 of them here in our fields a couple years ago. Hunters (and coyotes) have whittled that down to 5-6 now, but they are still a LOT more common here than they were 15-20 years ago. Very nice to see.

·

I have seen three within a mile of my house in a wooded area by a stream. But they are nice to look at, and I am seeing a lot more of them here too! They are actually impressive birds. :D

·
·

ALMOST...our national bird, instead of the eagle, too. I wonder if we would have been less warmongering if Ben Franklin had won that particular debate....?

·
·
·

He did his best! Maybe we would be more careful if we were Turkeys. But I doubt it we have so many turkeys, in DC these days....

:)

·

·

Oh, there are plenty of turkeys in D.C.....just the modern pejorative sense of them.

·
·
·
·
·

That is so true, but they won't issue tags and let us hunt them!

If they did, we could use the income to pay off the national debt and fund social security back to where it was before they stole all the cash from it!

>:(

LOL....Turkey Shoot Day in D.C....

Love it!

·
·
·

Sorry, that turkey shoot would take more than a week, even with bump stocks, ROFLOL! But I am sure it would be worth the effort!

:)

·
·

why? because they eat like pigs and destroy lawns?

·
·
·

No, because they are smart enough to stay off of Facebook, ROFLOL!

:)

·
·
·
·

hahaha! that answer makes about as much sense as mine and that's getting pretty bad!

·
·
·
·
·

Mine answer is as bad as your's...I better go see a doctor, or two; ROFLOL!

:)

howdy sir smithlabs! so they have turkey hunting season there because there are so many? I've never seen any down here.
hey I just found out that in 3 weeks the rep numbers are going away with the new hardfork. so you won't have to worry about hitting 50 although you probably will before that happens.

·

Then how will you know history on someone you are looking at following? Is there a link on this new stuff?

>:(

·
·

well sir that's what I asked the person who told me but they didn't answer so I don't know. maybe they want us all to look equal. I talk to a couple of people who know what's going on so I'll ask them, you probably know some connected people too.

I don't know where you go to read about the hardfork changes. I wouldn't be able to understand it probably but if I found a link I'll let you know.

·
·
·

Cool, I will ask around too.

We have two turkey seasons, and you can take 4 birds a year.

:D

·
·
·

one guy just told me this" they are working on a new ranking system. It is not ready yet but yes changes going to happen. This hardfork is more about making it easier for new users to join, a little quicker.
The big one though was an author of a post can't vote for the first 15 minutes (self vote). So many vote their posts immediately taking any curation away from their voters. It sounds really good."

·

The self vote is a leftover from FB. On FB you are supposed to self vote, ASAP. If your stuff is not good enough for you to like, why should anyone else like it?

That may be why it is so offensive here, I have noticed that Steemit is biased just a little bit against FB, ROFLOL!

Making it easier to join would be nice! Only about 25% of the people I get to try to sign up for steem, actually make it work. So easier would be better!

:D

sir smithlabs, did you find out anything? I heard more, they will still have the rep number but it will be more fairly attained, like using lots of bots and things won't count.

·

Sorry, sick puppy, been pretty busy. I have heard nothing, but I think the bots are of very little service on Steemit. Limiting them will improve the platform a lot, so that sounds good to me.

:O
