A swamp country fable: the turkey and the possum
Submitted by JIM NIGRO on March 6, 2013 - 8:10am
Why did the turkey cross the road? To prove to the possum that it COULD be done.
"No way!!!!" exclaimed the possum.
"Piece of cake" said the turkey...."Watch me".......and off he went.
"Cool beans" said the now believing possum. "Let me give it a try!"......
Meanwhile, a lone turkey vulture patiently watches in anticipation...........
He made it...much to the vulture's disappointment!
Don't worry turkey vulture, there'll be plenty more possums that won't be so lucky...
And the moral to the story is................???
Once again Jim, nice photos, would you happen to know the whereabouts of ole tom come May 1st:>)
According to the dictionary, a fable can be a story that teaches a lesson. It can also be a legend, or a false or improbable account of something.
I could be wrong, but I don't think this story teaches a lesson. But it's pretty cute and darn funny! The pictures are a hoot, too!
Thank you, Jim. The wife and I both enjoyed this.
Jim - have you ever been out to the Derby Hill Bird Observatory? I was just reading about the annual raptor migration that can be viewed from there, sounds pretty cool. Wondered if you had any input.
Yes, we still use the duckies, and my offer stands. You're welcome to paddle with us anytime.
Dad-that sounded like a joke my kids tell to each other and crack up over. Hmmm...wonder where they get it???
P.S Tonight Michael asked me if we could buy Peter Cottontail so he could memorize the song to sing to you!
You may know already, Jim but I just found out the refuge staff is expecting the eaglets to begin hatching any day now.
PS - Claudia did a really nice job on the Chamber window display.
