Re: PICTURE POST II!

I posted this on Facebook and said, "Dinner decided to volunteer itself this evening."

It's not everyday I see a turkey wandering around. He looks so sad too.

I almost posted this in the "What did you have for dinner?" thread, saying, "This."

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I was in Atlanta this past weekend for a science fiction convention, and stepped outside on Friday afternoon to find this:



Apparently the hotel (the Century Centre Marriott) has three bunnies living on its grounds. I saw all three of them later that night, but it was too dark out to take their photo.

Here's a picture that was taken during one of the panels (a version of the game show "Match Game"). I'm in the third row on the aisle, wearing the white shirt with blue stripes on the sleeves (yes, I was wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey at a science fiction convention ).

Dude, he may look sad, but turkeys are vicious, mean bastards.

What the heck does whether it's a baseball or hockey jersey have to do with anything when it's a science-fiction convention?

That happens all the time in my parents' neighborhood. Sometimes there'll be entire families of turkeys prowling around. They even block traffic! Nobody's ever taken a shot at one though...yet. (If this happened in MY neighborhood, though, somebody would. )

Right on!

I wore a Rush t-shirt to the last convention I went to.

Barbara Luna (of all people) walked up to me and asked me "Were at the concert last night?" I told her I was, and she said that she and her boyfriend were there as well. They're huge Rush fans, and we ended up talking for half an hour about the band.

You never know what is going to spark a conversation!

I like the look on her face in this shot. It's like some really strange adult or kid walked into the room and she just spotted them.

Exactly what I was thinking.



Seeker, hope you don't mind my little "revision" to your photo!
