What have we here? Well let me just say, it's nothing named Brandy, nor is it a bottle of brandy...
The OSPCA shelter lent us the crate to bring home these:
A pair of Narragansett turkeys! They needed a home and the shelter workers have got as pegged as
suckers suitable owners for adoptable farm animals. So the manager send me a text on Thursday asking if Gordon I would like a pair of turkeys.
I said YES, then added "Perhaps I should be polite and ask Gordon!" So I did. Meet Inari (left) and Carlton (right):
Inari is named after our friend's daughter. Carlton is named after a turkey my friend Amy had and loved!
These two are very tame. You can actually pick them up and carry them without a struggle. They were raised as pets.
So far so good. The guinea fowl are not so impressed though, as they were at the top of the pecking order, but are definitely outranked by Carlton!
I'll keep you posted on turkey happenings.
The other night after my run, Tristan helped me with my, ahem, cool-down.
He doesn't mind at all if I'm stinky and sweaty!
Such a good old boy!
He had yet another lump checked out the other day, under his chin, but he's fine. Since his spleen and a big tumour were removed last August, we've been keeping a close eye on him. He's slowing down again but still wants his walkies and seems happy with life (and snuggly!)
And on Friday night, the power went out just as I was serving supper, so we had a candlelit meal!
Glad it went out AFTER I finished cooking!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
