My hope is that we never lose our enthusiasm about living out here. Several times a day we comment to each other that this is the place we’ve always dreamed of having. Every time I pass a window, I stop and look in all directions I can see just to see what’s out there. Mostly we see cute little birds, an ugly vulture who has claimed the top of our utility pole and lots of deer.
Yesterday dad and Vince left mid-morning to go to Comanche, and then to Stephenville to look for a tractor and a UTV. Mom and I headed to Santa Anna to a quilt shop. Right before dad and Vince got home, I was in the kitchen cooking and looked out through the glass doors and there were turkeys!
I counted five turkeys out there. They hung around for a while and didn’t fly off when I walked out on the porch to get a better picture.
Such a neat sight to be able to look out and see wild turkeys in the yard. This truly is our dream place!
