A Mormon, a Catholic priest, a Methodist minister, a flock of turkeys, and a wrecked picked up truck all come together on a highway ...

No, this is not a joke. That’s just who and what I saw early Thursday morning while bicycling southeast of town.

The truck rested in the opposite ditch from the direction which it appeared to be headed (west), and a highway patrolman snapped a photograph of the damage as I pedaled by. An ambulance, sans lights, had passed me earlier as I headed south on Country Club Road.

A flock of turkeys--including a hen and her jakes and jennys (don’t know which was which)--is currently hanging around some property just south of the lake between 20th SE and 30th SE. This makes the second time I have seen them over the past week or two. So, if you drive that way regularly, please be aware.

Finally, on the ride back into town, I saw First United Methodist minister Dan Ferguson, heading out the way I had just come. About a mile or two further, I rode briefly with Father Floyd McKinney of Sacred Heart Catholic Church. His pre-work riding companion this morning was Erin Crouch, who is Director of Religious Education at the church.

That wraps up my version of “We saw …,” which was a short, popular column that regularly appeared on the front page of the Chickasha Daily Express. I worked at the newspaper the summer following college graduation.
