Weekend Watching

I spent some of the weekend watching the arrival of beautiful fall colors

and the leaves beginning to fall.

In between football games there was time for watching the little birds

and the big birds.

I was amazed to look out the window and watch the turkey chase a deer into the woods with a final peck on the behind when she wasn’t moving fast enough.

When I wasn’t watching the turkey watch himself, which he stills does daily, I was watching Hurricane Florence coverage, football, The Resident, and the interesting documentary, The King, which combines my love of music, classic cars, history and, of course, Elvis.  The film “takes the King’s 1963 Rolls-Royce on a musical road trip across America.  From Memphis to New York, Las Vegas and beyond, the journey traces the rise and fall of Elvis as a metaphor for the country he left behind.  In this groundbreaking film, Eugene Jarecki paints a visionary portrait of the state of the American Dream and a penetrating look at how the hell we got here.”

  2. How funny to see a turkey chase a deer! Love that turkey reflection in your last image!

    1. Thank you!🙂 The turkey has two obsessions right now, his reflection and that deer. He visits himself constantly throughout the day in the truck bumpers and is just as aggressive with his reflection as the deer. We have four deer that visit daily and something must have occurred between these two because it is the only deer he chases. Last night he chased it through the woods as the other three were standing in the yard watching.

    What a wild turkey! Great early fall shots, and I read a review of The King the other day, and it looks an interesting way to document recent history and current events.
    Have a good day!

    1. Thank you!🙂 The turkey is absolutely out of control. He’s getting aggressive with himself and the deer. He pecks the bumper so hard at times he seems a little dazed and after he chased the deer into the woods he patrolled the tree line to make sure it stayed out of the yard. I loved the documentary Elvis Presley: The Searcher about his life and loved the concept behind The King. The footage, cast, different conversations, opinions and music shared along the road trip were very interesting and it’s something I plan on watching again. There was even a brief Canadian immigrant view on America and Elvis offered by Mike Myers.🙂

    1. Thank you!🙂 Our temperatures still make it feel like summer, but the changing colors are a wonderful reminder that fall is almost here.🙂

    “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” Hope he doesn’t start chasing you – he’s bold!

    1. He is getting bold, yesterday Gabby and I arrived home to find him staring into the bumper and even with her barking out the car window he was in no hurry to leave his reflection. We have now seen him on our deck and so far he only chases the one deer, but if he starts chasing the fawns he’s in trouble.🙂
