Is that a turkey gobbling?

This morning after hitting the snooze button 4 times, I was laying in bed and all of a sudden I hear "gobble gobble".  Yep, I hear a turkey gobbling outside.  I lift my head up thinking that I might be dreaming and am not really hearing one, but the hubby opens up his eyes. 

Me: "Did you hear that?"
Hubs: "Yeah"
Me: "Was that a turkey?!!?!?"
Hubs: "I think so. It sounded like one."

Ok, we don't live in a farm, near a farm, or near anywhere that a turkey might just be taking a morning stroll down the street. I live in a suburb town in northern NJ which is 30 minutes from NYC.  You don't see turkeys roaming the streets where I live. 

Did I get up to look out the window and see if indeed there was a turkey outside our window? Nope, I stayed in bed cuddled with the hubs trying to convince him to play hookie today and not go to work so we can relax all day dreading to hear the alarm go off again.

Happy Turkey Wednesday

It must be mating season! (For the turkeys, I'm not getting into your personal life!) On my way to my son's school Monday, I had to slam on my brakes as three wild turkeys crossed the road, and I shouted, "TURKEYS!!!" Huh?!? Of course, my boys got a huge kick out of it. We do live in rural NJ, where there is farmland and such, so it's much more common out here (about 70 minutes outside NYC).

Who knew NJ was the Turkey State?
