Wild Turkey

In a quiet corner of Louisiana stands the remnants of the Bayou Gas Stop, now swallowed by nature's embrace. Its decaying walls showcase a once-vivid mural: a swamp scene with a hunter's silhouette aiming at a soaring turkey. Oddly, a real stuffed turkey, said to be the proud catch of Beau Landry, the station's late owner, hangs adjacent to the painted scene. As modernity rerouted traffic away, the station and Beau's tales faded into obscurity. Though the roof has collapsed and vegetation reigns, the mural remains a haunting fusion of art and reality—a glimpse of a bygone era. (Story is total fiction).
