    New Direction for Ridding Pingo of Turkeys

    I may be wrong, Ache, but I believe I read that you posted Pingo you would submit on Monday a new plan of attack on her disgusting turkey invasion ? Perhaps you and she are corresponding separate from CC?  Not that it's any of my business, mind you, and I certainly don't want to start any gossip, but I was just wondering why we haven't seen at least an outline of your strategy.

    Re: New Direction for Ridding Pingo of Turkeys

    Good morning,

    I was glad to see your post and know that you haven't abandoned Pingo in this trying time, Ache, but I must say, your secretiveness has me a bit puzzled.  As far as I know, the turkeys have no access to a computer, so could not possibly read any plans of attack you might post.  I have to wonder if there really is a plan, or if this is just a delaying strategy on your part while you come up with something.

    That being said, please be careful if there really is any  POW POW POW going on over there today, as I will be visiting Pingo for coffee on her deck.  I sometimes come in through the back of her yard, and I would not want to be mistaken for a turkey.

    I'm hoping you are really giving this problem some serious thought.  Pingo isn't complaining about them much any more, but I for one, don't look forward to sharing space on the deck with even the cute fluffy little babies, for I know the ugly parents aren't far behind.  Hoping to see a plan of action, but please, no pics of the actual obliteration.  Both Pingo and I are far too delicate to be witness to that.

    I'm with tt on this one Ache.  They are dumb turkeys so you really don't need a sneak attack.  Besides this is no fun without your blow to blow description of OO..  I mean come on now....

    OMG - you are too funny!  

    However, I will come back with something - at some point - when I stop laughing.

    Oh, I just had a thought - perhaps my GD, the one who is a psychologist you know, could be of some help to you.  She has training in profiling and might be able to more clearly give you a feel of which of the birds might be the ringleaders.  Shall I give her a call?

    I don't understand why you get so huffy at the suggestion you could use some help. We're all on the same page here, helping Pingo get rid of those turkeys once and for all.  I would think the more heads with their thinking caps on, the better.

    Ache,
    I appreciate all your help. Please tell me, do I need to avoid my own backyard for a while? Would I be advised in advance, when your troops will arrive?
    Actually, I think General Petraeus might enjoy this. Will give him a couple of days off. Quite a bit different than the turkey he has been chasing lately. After the war is over, I will have Kar help me make Cucumber Spritzer for everyone. Gracie is now so well, she can bring her. If you wait a few weeks with your ambush, Gracie might even be well enough to be the bird dog cornering them in. And tt has already frozen away half of those Whoopee pies, she made yesterday. She won't mind to come and cheer you on and offer them as a treat afterwards. - Pingo

    "Are you working for the other side now, trumpet? "

    If you read back in one of my earlier posts, I said I'd be going over to Pingo's and didn't want to be mistaken "for a turkey" - - but no, I'm not one of them.

    I did have a call from my GD (you know the one) last night.  She had arranged to take a little time off of work to do the profiling for you, but said while trying to get in touch with your people, had done a little "profiling" based on current posts, and felt it wouldn't - how do I put this delicately - be beneficial on a future resume to have her name linked in this particular endeavor.  So sorry, since I was the one who brought it up.  Her reaction was much the same as yours, "Nana, stay out of it." 

    All that being said, were there any more captures last night?
