Wow!  There is really lots going on!  i fondly remember the turkey rama when I was a 12 year old . . won a turkey that had been dyed light green that we kept in the back yard.  It "communicated" with another turkey about 3 blocks away until their owner paid me $10 and bought my turkey too.  Fun times!

If I could give you a thumbs up Margaret, I would.  How funny for the owner of the other turkey to pay you $10 dollars for your turkey, Lol!
