My cactus catastrophe was my own fault but I am convinced that I was set up by the turkeys.  Upon further examination I have discovered their diabolical plot.  Do you see the pole on the right hand side of the first photo?  That is the pole the barbed wire USED to be strung on.  Now we all know, that barbed wire doesn't just fall off the pole by itself.  And what a coincidence that the turkeys just happened to run past it.  But did they disappear into the ravine to the side?  No!  They stopped and waited for me to catch up!  Why would they do that, unless they wanted to make sure I followed their exact path!

My theory is that those Commando Turkey Platoon removed the barbed wire to create a trip-wire, and then lured me over it so that I would trip over it and become entangled in it.  Well, I didn't trip, after the cactus, and with a gazillion spines still embedded in my face, there was no way I was going down again to risk more spines and hammering the previous batch even deeper.  But they snagged me with their trap and they knew it.  I heard them laughing as I limped back to the truck... Damn turkeys!

I think you need to stay away from turkeys for a while.  and while your at it, let dickidoo do the turkey carving this year.  and maybe you should stay inside for a while.  in a room with no sharp edges.  ;-)

Turkeys are EVIL.  They rate right up there with the dreaded PENQUINS! lol I can see how they tricked you...just waiting just beyond the point of no return...oh my if you had fallen..they probably would of been on top of you in a NY minute! Pecking Pecking....instead of a camera you need an old fashioned scatter gun...Sandi
