Well, Saturday morning I was up at 7:30am with the dog going out for the morning walk. We walked all the way down to the end of the street and that's when I noticed something cross the sidewalk a bit further up from us. I thought it was the groundhog that I have seen before. As we get closer, I realize it's a freaking turkey! So, what do I do? What any other person would do.
I briskly walk back to the apartment, leave Sadie in the house, grab my camera and go back out on search for said turkey.
I walk to the end of the street and there they are. 3 of them!!! These turkeys are HUGE.

Picture this: Me clutching my camera PRAYING it doesn't fall... in purple pajama bottoms, hubs over sized sweatshirt on and my hair looking like I have been electrocuted.
All this happened at 7:30am. Needless to say, I won't be getting closer to those turkeys anymore.
BUT WAIT, IT GETS BETTER...
About two hours later, I decide to go out for a two mile walk. The whole time I am walking, I am on the lookout for the turkeys. When I come around the block where they were in the morning, I was relieved to not see them. Wooo... I'm in the clear! So I thought.
I turned to walk up the driveway to the apartment and stop dead in my tracks. THE TURKEY IS IN THE PARKING LOT RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR CAR. I freak. I call the hubs and yell at him to look out the window and let me know if his two other friends are on the other side. He says no. So I run around the other side of the building so I can get into the door without this turkey coming at me.
I get to doorway safe, but of course, I whip out my camera phone and start snapping away while the hubs is hanging out the window. Then hubs has a light bulb moment and he is gone. All of a sudden, while I am still standing in harms way taking pictures, I hear this pumping noise. Yep, hubs has a freaking bbgun and he starts to shoot around it so it can get out from the parking lot. So, the turkey books it my way, AGAIN. But, he wasnt' coming at me this time. But if we did, I had one foot in the doorway for an easy escape. I got to snap this picture:
