Tom’s Turkeys

"Yes, we have wild turkeys on and around the ranch out here in Peyton!   Tom"

“Yes, we have wild turkeys on and around the ranch out here in Peyton!” 

This week I was going through my emails and found one from one of Greenwoman Magazine’s most romantic writers, Tom Preble. Tom wrote about his Peyton, Colorado ranch in Greenwoman #3 (“Never Surrender!” – an exciting tale about hail on the Colorado Plains) and in Greenwoman #4 (“A Generous Season” – a story that’s as much about Tom’s love for his wife as it is about the bounty of his wife’s garden). More than one reader swooned a little while reading that tale!

It was sweet that Tom sent me these photos of his turkeys, and he said I could share them with you.

It seems here as if the toms are in competition for this hen.

It seems here as if the toms are in competition for this hen. How puffed up they are!

Tom’s bio:

Rancher/writer Tom Preble lives in his self-built, earth-bermed, and energy-efficient home and ranch on the Palmer Divide east of Colorado Springs. Something of a Renaissance Man, Tom has wide ranging interests, from astronomy to welding to philosophy. Trained as a computer electronics engineer and now semi-retired, Tom drives a school bus over the back roads of the Colorado prairies and observes and writes about his little friends on the bus.
