Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Turkeys here, geese in Ft. Wayne; do all the fowl want to study theology? :)

    How awful to suggest taking a shotgun to these birds! The turkey was once thought to be a better symbol for the country than the eagle. We know about Canadian geese here in Minnesota. They ruin yards because . . . I won't get into that here. Having a turkey in your yard is a good thing and you are to be congratulated for tolerating the bird. Perhaps there is some Dept. of Natural Resources person who could advise if the turkey should be removed to another place. Keep us posted on this.

    Cabela's just opened one of their stores North of STL. Sure one of their salesmen could outfit you with something nice!

    Camera Obscura

    I still don't get what the big deal is about having a turkey in the yard. We have one wander in and out occasionally. At least they're native; not something I can say about the neighborhood peafowl. My favorite sight was the time we saw a pair of turkey hens walking along the side of the street, gobbling at each other, for all the world like a couple of soccer moms taking their daily constitutional.

    And yes, the wild ones can fly -- enough to clear a fence, but not to survive a drop from a helicopter (/WKRP).


    The WKRP turkey episode had to be one top ten all time comedy episodes. Everytime I think of the line, " Mr Carlson: As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly", I laugh out loud.
