wildlife in Marin County

Forty years ago it seemed rare to spot one or more wild Turkeys here in Marin County, but these days the gobblers are all over the place, either searching for worms and grubs, or gathering in roadways -- especially on blind corners -- for impromptu sessions of the dare-devil game called "Chicken".

Hey people -- if you own a dog but have to leave it home and go to work -- and if you are rich -- you can hire this nice lady to walk your nice doggie for you.

--Or you could just get a cat and leave her/him home to snooze the day away and/or get weird in the mirror...

don't know if I care for the kitty shot either, but I do love the pack of dogs. Woof. Nothing can lift my morale faster and higher than spending time with dogs. Can't explain it. I actually did what this lady is doing, took care of dogs and took them to the beach to exercise them. It can be fun, until one of them decides to get in a fight with another dog ...

Yikes, that's one scary picture of Kitty. Love the others, especially the turkeys. We just saw a huge turkey wandering around the mini mall parking lot the other day. Don't know if he was looking for a parking spot or not...

Took me a straight 30 seconds to figure out the cat shot

Have a great weekend

The popular comment layout is common, so it is easily recognized scanning to post a comment. If the comment section is in a different format, then I am going to spend more time trying to decipher what everything means.
