You are so clever. I'll be rushing to our local grocery store after hotdogs later today. I bought supplies for making school lunches, but failed to remember the hotdogs! Have a splendid Labor day!

Diane said...

Happy Holiday week end. I wouldn't think that I'd see turkeys in Florida. Don't know why. An alligator perhaps. Fun post.

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

I'm back from camp. I didn't know there were wild turkeys in FL? Mom says we will probably see them in Asheville and Weaverville. Can't wait!

You are going to be mighty busy.
Aren't wild turkeys wonderful. A couple of years ago hubby and me went fishing on the river. A flock of them flew across the water right over our boat to the other side. What an amazing sight.
I love your banner, Its lovely.

Hahaha. That's a fun post Diane. Lots of turkeys there. Do you have a big Labour Day dinner down there?

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Haha! I'm glad to see Beef on that package instead of Turkey! Cute post! I just snapped a wild turkey on our Back 6 the other day. I don't think they were headed to WalMart, tho! :)

Cute post! Gotta love the thoughts that animals have.

Ames said...

Thank goodness you didn't go for the Turkey hot dogs! Ha ha!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

This cracked me up! Turkeys are so funny!!

Vee said...

Those look like some big old birds. I always had a turkey carrying an "eat cheese" sign on my classroom door in November. This reminded me of that!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Ha, what a sight! Hope your "turkey free" weekend is wonderful!
Blessings,
Cindy

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Oh my goodness sweet friend, such memories you bring me with the Hebrew National turkey hot dogs mother used to make for us kids, specially for BBQs! You see, I'm a Newyorker...I guess you know that! There's a black swan here in a country restaurant and I love it, reminds me of that awful movie! Thank you dear Diane for your sweet and kind words for my daughter. Have a happy September month!

How fun!! I know they're so glad you were going to buy hot dogs and not turkey for sandwiches.
You're making my head swell with your compliments! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

I never knew there were wild turkeys in florida. We always make a turkey on the first football sunday each year. Woo-hoo!!

cynthia lee designs said...

Great post...too cute!! Want to know something funny? We see seagulls in our Walmart parking lot all the time here in Ohio. Actually, it's not far from a small lake.
hugs,
Cindy

Happy hot dogging on Monday...

That's so strange to see turkeys walking around in the neighborhood in Florida! Happy Labor day!

Freckled Hen said...

Turkeys on the way to Walmart! That's a mix up of two different worlds! Hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend!

So cute!! That was one of the surprising things to find in Florida...wild turkeys! Loved your story!

Linda Walker said...

We see wild turkeys here very often! Yesterday we saw a bunch that we always see by the side of the road. there were some young ones that we have watched "grow up". Don't know why they are so close to the road when there are ample woods behind them?????? Have a great holiday Diane!

Lady of the Manor said...

Loved your post! Made me giggle thinking I might have just seen a turkey or two at MY Walmart!!!

Unknown Mami said...

I'm not surprised, I've seen a bunch of turkeys at Walmart before. Although, these are better dressed.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

That's a lot of wild turkeys! It seems they are making a come back in many communities--there was even a few that lived in Manhattan!

Thank you for your kind words of condolence, Diane. They were greatly appreciated!

Pondside said...

Too funny! Do you think that they know that it's not all that long to Thanksgiving?

Micupoftea said...

What a fun post! I've never seen turkeys running free, but we do have road runners. Happy September :)

Jeanne said...

Your too funny!!

Helen Philipps said...

Della said...

You are so fun, and funny! I think it's really cool how much wildlife we actually see here in Florida... indeed! right here in our own little city. Great pics!

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Hilarious! Actually, we usually eat only turkey hotdogs!!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

What a sight! Wild turkeys would stop traffic if we saw them in our Walmart parking lot or anywhere in town.

Marcia Pilar said...

teehee
Had me smiling all the way through. There are certainly some gorgeous hills in your area, my friend. When we visit friends in Gainesville, we are always thrilled when we go past Orlando because that's when the thrill rides really start for us. :) We love it.
Glad you enjoyed your Labor Day. I am so behind on visits it's not even funny. Helping hubby out with our family business and the kids had college activities that had us out almost two weeks.
Browsing through your posts now.
xoxo's

Blackberry Lane said...

What a funny sight. Hope you are having a nice week.

Doreen@househoneys said...

LOL! Who knew there were hills AND turkeys in Florida?? In my neck of the woods (NY & Mass.) we see them all the time...and fox, and bears, and snapping turtles and sometimes mouse.

HEEHAWWWWW!!!

Diane Writes said...

Hi namemate! Sorry for the super late comment and visit. I've been so busy with work over the past week. :)

I was again mesmerized by the large relaxing view of the field. The greenery is very refreshing to the eye. The weather also looks so perfect.

Wishing you another great weekend!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

LOL No turkey dogs for you, huh! ;P
Did you know that Benjamin Franklin wanted the wild turkey to be our national symbol?
