Watch the Turkeys

* a collection of stories and memories, in no particular order, from the life and times of John Clarke, who served as a policeman in the Australian Police Force, a great practical joker, he also had a great affinity with people and wildlife, was a champion swimmer, snooker player, loved golf, still loves fishing and is also an artist. I hope you enjoy his recollections - cheers, karin (his daughter)

When we were at Tottenham we had goats, guinea fowl, chooks, chicks, and turkeys. The turkeys had 15 chickens, some were striped and some were not. Karin was playing in the yard and came inside saying "watch the turkeys, watch the turkeys".  We went outside to find all the striped turkey chicks lined up on the lawn, wet and scrubbed with a laundry scrubbing brush, which was beside them. We gave mouth to beak rescusitation and saved half of them. Karin thought the striped turkeys were dirty!
