Giving Thanks


This weekend, these wild turkeys came to visit the area behind our trailer as we stopped for the night near St. Regis, Montana, on our way to eastern Montana.

I know there will be a lot of domestic turkeys eaten in Canada over this weekend, as we give thanks for the good things in our lives. These wild turkeys are thankful too (that they are not on our menu).

I know that I’m tasty,

But let’s not be hasty,

I tell you I’m tough to the bone.

It’s one lucky matter

I’m not on a platter,

So I’m giving thanks of my own.


Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!

    • Happy Thanksgiving, Sonja. We were so thrilled to see these birds. There were about eight of them and I was able to get quite a few pictures of them. I even got a video but didn’t have any luck uploading it to the blog.


  2. Happy Thanksgiving, Anneli! I really like the poem. I hope you have a safe trip and enjoy your stay here!

    • Thanks, Terry. We love coming to Montana. It’s the most beautiful state! My camera’s memory card melts. We had snow last night in the Wolf Point area, and after a couple of hours in the morning, it was gone again. Sure looked pretty with the snow.
