The Nokomis Turkey

I let this blog fall into inactivity for a couple reasons. One: I quit smoking. The instant I did that, all thoughts seemed to leave my brain and transform into one giant "I'd really, REALLY like a cigarette now." Even with the help of Chantix (which did work for me), quitting smoking was really all that I could concentrate on for the first three weeks. After that, the cravings dropped to a tolerable level.

Also, after a while of not posting, I stopped carrying my camera with me everywhere. So, even when I did see something worth blogging about, I didn't have my camera with me. And, personally, I like having pictures in nearly every post.

But, the past couple days, I did happen to grab the camera. And I'm glad I did because I never expected to see a wild turkey near Lake Nokomis this morning, which is in a fairly urban part of Minneapolis.
