Unbelievable! Guess Who Wants an Invite to Thanksgiving Dinner?!

By
Real Estate Agent with REMAX Specialists Minnesota License#90858

This one is too good not to share...Since living in Ham Lake we have had our encounters with wildlife but with less than two weeks prior to Thanksgiving, this is one for the books.

turkeyMoments ago I was pulled away from my work on the computer due to a weird thumping noise. I was confused but thought maybe the cat was playing with something in the kids rooms...nothing upstairs. The noise was coming from the basement...maybe the cat had something downstairs...that can't be good as in the country, we get mice from time to time.

Nope! It was this guy and he scared me out of my wits! He was tapping at the glass of our basement window. I had to get a photo to prove it to everyone.

This is my third encounter with wild turkeys in Ham Lake. The first one didn't go so well and we are still cleaning miniscule shards of glass off the dashboard of the minivan. The second one was last year when one bird got trapped in the batting cage netting out back. But this one trying to get a free invite to Thanksgiving? Good thing I am not a hunter! :)

Brigita--You are assuming that I know how to cook! Where do you think the label with the directions as to how to cook and clean are located? :)

Perhaps he is a present from God, and maybe you should invite him in and show him where the kitchen is! LOL

That is too funny! He might be quite tasty in a pot of boiling peanut oil.  Deep fried turkey is quite the delicacy now.

Gary--It would have been a better present if he had arrived without feathers and in a roasting pan with directions...Unless he knows how to cook :)

Lizette--That sounds like an interesting recipe...We have always baked ours...Last year my brother did one on the grill. Next time the bird knocks, I will have a plan. ;)
