Dr. Do Little

I was walking up my river and came to the area where the turkeys hang out. There was a city work crew doing some kind of complicated job involving the sewers. They had a medium sized area carefully cordoned off, but the turkeys were having none of it. These are big birds in a large group. They are not easily intimidated. And they certainly are not intimidated by a bunch of brightly colored balustrades that are a convenient height for them to walk under. 

So they did.

It was causing a small amount of tension around the work site.

So, as I was passing right by, I said to one of these workers "I kind of know these turkeys. Do you want me to say something to them?"

The worker guy looked at me like I was a bit odd. I'm willing to admit to being odd if everyone else will admit to their own being odd. And then he said "And what would you say to these turkeys?"

"Oh, it doesn't really matter." I replied. "They never really listen to me anyway."

This kind of threw the guy. "So what's the point then? Why are you even offering?"

"I like to be helpful."

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
