A career in modeling

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 27, 2009, 11:42 PM
Do stonecarvers need models? Because I think I could be a gargoyle.

Well, here in Minnesota you can't use alligators, on account of the climate.

Why, because if they look at me directly they’ll turn to stone themselves? Good point.

Probably. And then you can use the mold to make several gargoyles to ornate your house, this will detter Jehovah witnesses and insurances salesmen.

The next door neighbor has garden gnomes, and across the street there are real live guard turkeys.

Wild turkeys, in fact.

I used to buy turkeys to a farmer. That is, a dead turkey all in pieces and morcels...And for each beast it was a little more that 10 kg of meat. I never asked to see the monsters alive. Did the wild turkeys attack the people in the street ?
Or are thet shy ? Gooses can be pretty mean.

Turkeys are shy, except for an occasional individual that one might see on a funny videos program. :)

It’s an old guy who likes to raise a few poultry in his backyard for some reason. I think he might have gotten a visit from the humane society, though, because he was keeping wild turkeys in a pen for the last few years, and they obviously didn’t like it in there. They roam in the yard now and seem to stay or at least come back after roaming. Or maybe he just wanted to take advantage of the fact that genuinely wild turkeys would stand outside the pen displaying their feathers, because his turkeys, we’ve noticed, have been reproducing.

Several years ago he was raising farm turkeys and they were more obvious -- bigger, more brightly colored, and less shy. What little flying ability they had they used to go constantly back and forth over the chain fence, sometimes standing around near the next-door neighbor's front door. :) OTOH my wife once saw a bunch of the wild turkeys waiting by the gate to be let into the backyard, which is a bit strange, because wild turkeys are supposed to be good fliers -- though I’ve never seen it myself -- the one time I can remember startling a wild turkey, it ran behind a tree.

Turkeys seem to be very common these days. I don’t remember seeing them a long time ago. Maybe they were affected by DDT. (It’s got to be thirty or forty years since DDT was banned in the US, and now red-tailed hawks, once scarce, are all over the place, one of the most commonly seen birds.)
