  1. Boy, what a perfectly matched pair. Right in step with each other, like they are dancing an old-fashioned soft-shoe. All they need is top-hats a twirling canes. :-)

    Great shot, Melissa.

    Merry Christmas to you, Jon, Leah, and Crystal :-)

  3. omg! That’s amazing! Did you take the photo? I was listening to Dassin “Salut”, just the first notes, and those turkeys looked like they were dancing to the music.
    Fantastic shot!

      Thank you Alexandra. Yes these guys were playing along the wall this morning. Normally they just hop up and over the wall, but these two had a nice gentle game of chase going on. (: It was kind of like they were dancing. (: Hope you’re well! * Melissa

      They certainly looked like they were having fun. Bob they even hopped off the wall at the same time (the picture was too blurry to share, but what a weird/unusual sight!) Hugs Bob!
