This week in Maine has been a roller coaster of weather. Last Sunday we had a high of 82 degrees. On Tuesday we had a high of 59 degrees. Wednesday it was a record setting 93 degrees and Thursday we had a high of 59. Without a drop of rain and hardly a cloud in the sky.
The weather woke up our forsythia, which went from nothing to spectacular in two days, and it's made the wild turkeys in the back 40 especially vocal. We've been woken up every day for the last five by turkey gobbles very close to the yard.
It's enough to make me consider a turkey hunting license.
Turkey hunting or no turkey hunting, I may have to give up tennis and take up golf. Tennis has gotten very dangerous lately. Have you ever been hit in the eye by a served ball? It's not easy to let that happen and it doesn't feel very good when it does happen.
