    I would swear we see 5 Jerseys there, two cows, two sweaters, and the Island itself.

    That is one of a set of 4. Turkeys are so stupid they don't know how to retreat.
    Peanut is not on the menu.

    The situation aboard Eaton was far more serious...

    Eaton Post World War II

    ‘‘ . . . . On 6 May 1956, off the Virginia Capes, the battleship USS Wisconsin (BB-64) collided with the Eaton in thick fog while daylight steaming at high speed (20 knots). The collision caused serious damage to both ships, with the Eaton contacting the battleship's bow on the starboard side forward of the bridge, which crushed to port side and broke the keel. The CPO mess area and mess deck were smashed. The ship's 1st LT saved her by securing bow to stern with anchor chain, and closing the watertight door beside his room. Only one sailor (a cook) was struck unconscious. Commander Richard Varley of the Eaton was later court-martialed and found negligent. . . . . ’’

    Meanwhile at the ranch, Zippy got under the fence and escaped across the road. Time for a round up I guess.

    Just “wildstock” I guess. Plenty of deer, turkey, feral hogs, coyotes, raccoons and other assorted critters to keep them company.

    1449 technical journal illustration, against the current by the current

    Paddle boat, by the Italian artist-engineer Taccola, De machinis (1449)

    The paddles wind a rope fixed to an anchor upstream, thus moving the boat against the current.

    Outrageously weird mind fark daydreaming that up.
    Maybe it tickled someones fancy. Or was designed for weak minded lords so an inventor could make a living off a benefactor.
