A Real Life Tail…I mean Tale

This happened near my house this very week!

A pair of wild turkeys crossed a busy road with their five chicks. All traffic stopped and waited for them to get to safety. The turkey family caused a 22-car traffic jam that closed both lanes of traffic for ten minutes!

Aw…. I like these kinds of stories…where people actually slow down, stop their harried life, and appreciate God’s gift of nature.

Here’s another story that will start your weekend off right.

And if that doesn’t brighten your day…today is National Doughnut Day! Dunkin’ Donuts is giving away a doughnut of your choice when you purchase a beverage. Now if that doesn’t give you a TGIF feeling, I don’t know what will.

    Oh I love the duck story! And the turkeys too! It always amazes me when wildlife intertwines itself in cities!

    Heard about the free donuts….especially since there are DD locations on every block on the east coast! More popular than Starbucks. But I haven't ventured into one yet….maybe someday!
