  1. Spotted what I thought were about five geese crossing the road a few days ago, but when I got closer, I saw they were turkeys, right in the suburbs, out for a stroll. I did a post once with a numpty of names (hee, hee) like this. I really think, however, that a poop of geese would be more appropriate.

    Happy Sunday, John, and have a wonder-filled week.
