Don’t Be a Turkey

Here in Chicken Town………..Bridgetown……….er……..the Rose City, we got Chickens.  They are quite common, especially in SE Portland.  You see them everywhere it seems like.  Everyone has a chicken, or maybe every Chicken has an everyone…….something like that I suppose.
Zipping thru SE Portland this past Saturday during our monsoon storm, where by the way what is up with drivers hammering thru 8 inches of water………sorry I digress………..I turn the corner in a SE Woodstock area, and down the street I see one of the biggest chickens I have ever seen.  It’s just cruising down the center of the road right at me.  As I get within about a half block, the chicken didn’t look so good, because it was a turkey!  All jiggy and happy, if I didn’t know any better, it was out for a Saturday stroll thru the ‘hood.
It was just in a casual mode, heading down the road like it was nothing.  I stop, roll down the window, it stops, and I say “cheese” and click goes my camera.  I tend to have a lot of first times rolling thru as much real estate dealings as I do, but this is the first time for me to see a turkey in an urban environment.
I got a good chuckle out of it as I let it pass and dawdle on down the road.  Mysteriously, I got instantly hungry then sleepy…………Thanksgiving is upon us soon.
