Show Description
Shep meets a girl named Doris in the Library while he was doing research on theWhiskey Rebellion. She needed help with differential equations which he knew all about. He helps her and they begin dating. One night Shep picks her up and takes a short cut ending up in the midst of a herd of turkeys. After sitting through this storm of birds and being threatened by the farmer they finally arrive at their destination only to have Doris ask to go home - they both, along with the car smelled like turkeys themselves.
This is a variation on the story he told 11-28-68. In that one he was going to pick up his date when getting stuck in the herd.
