Turkey Day?

By Uncle Hans

About 10 miles from our destination of Green Bay, we hit an adult wild Tom turkey.  Right in front of the driver's face.  Fortunately, the safety glase held, but just barely.  You could see small fractures in the plastic.  It was about 40 lbs and nearly 75lbs and quite a test for the windshield.  Had it failed, it may have been very serious.  

    Of course, it was a holiday weekend and no one would fix the problem so we had to borrow Kathy's car to go home and exchange cars in Abbotsford on Tuesday night after the glass was fixed.  What an adventure!!





.......... the little grey smudge in the last picture is a feather, a that we have left of the turkey.
