Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

The Turkey Burglar

I love this song

You had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day

Now if you click the link and listen to the You Tube video while you read this, you'll see that on Monday, it became prophetic.
I was doing a large report in a team situation.  I am the team leader of a team of 9.  Half the team failed to follow directions, three team members turned in their portions late, and with the due date looming, I was about to rip my hair out.

A kind soul bought me a hot Starbucks and accidently tipped it all over my bare legs, notes, key board, and the floor.  Later in cleaning it up, I smacked my head on a stained glass window I have suspended from the ceiling as a room divider.  The day was starting to look up after lunch.  Then I discovered I had been committed to a social obligation at 7 which someone had forgotten to tell me about.   I quickly pulled together a menu of spicy grilled turkey burgers, potato salad with red potatoes, grilled corn, and squash with a fruit dessert. 

I set the raw burgers on the counter and went out to water the yard.  I came back in and discovered the most serious outrage.  I had been visited by the evil turkey burglar.  I know she looks like an intellectual in the pic, but she’s the devil, I assure you.  And she’s got some reach for a little dog, too!

I love that song! And like to transition into "Momma told me there'd be days like this..."
My dog got not one but TWO peanut butter sandwiches on Friday.
